Good Afternoon Everyone!

We hope that everyone is staying busy during this time away from the Wattsburg Area Elementary Center. Although we aren’t able to physically walk the hallways, say hello, and see everyone’s smiling faces, we wanted to reach out to everyone to let you know that we are thinking about you and your families. You have all grown up so much this school year and you have put forth a tremendous amount of effort in all that you do. During this time away from school, we hope that you are staying engaged and are continuing to learn. Take time to call your family and friends, write letters to them, play board games, and/or go outside and play (if the Erie weather permits, of course). This is also a wonderful opportunity to pick up a new book and read it to yourself, or to someone in your home. 

We are honored to be your principals and you make us all so proud to be Bobcats! Please know that we are thinking about you everyday and we will continue to update you as more information becomes available.


Mrs. Barboni and Mr. Calabrese

Attendance Reminders

Educational Trips

Pre-approval from the principal is mandatory and should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the commencement of the trip. The destination must be stated and the educational activities that the student will be experiencing must be listed. If the trip is deemed not educational in nature, it will be not be approved and the days will be marked unlawful.

Absences from School

It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to submit, in writing, a reason for their child’s absence as soon as possible after the child returns to school. The middle school allows 3 days to submit an excuse after the child returns to school. After 3 days, the day will be marked unlawful. If an excuse is returned after the 3 days, it will be documented an excuse was submitted for that day(s) but it will still be marked unlawful. The attendance office sends reminders to submit excuses as well.
