Waverly Community Schools to close Friday due to district-wide staff shortages
‘We apologize for the inconvenience this causes our families’
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Waverly Community Schools will be closed Friday due to shortages in staff.
According to an email sent to parents and a Facebook post written by superintendent Kelly Blake, a combination of illnesses and lack of substitute teachers contributed to Friday’s closure.
The lost day might require an additional school day in June.
An email and voicemail sent to parents of Colt Elementary students informing residents of a picture retake day on Friday was sent by mistake. School officials said the message was scheduled in advance and was mistakenly sent out before the district could cancel.
Colt Elementary School, along with all Waverly Community Schools and the Administration Building, will be closed Friday.
The district urges anyone who is interested in becoming a substitute teacher to contact Waverly Community Schools at 517-319-3031.
