    Posted by Dr. Dennis J. McCarthy on 3/27/2020

    In times of national or international tragedy, people come together to do all they can to survive. The Western Area faculty and staff want to assure our students, parents, and community that we are doing all we can to provide our students with an enriched education. In an effort to ensure our students do not fall behind, we will continue to send assignments to our students. I realize this is not as much fun as the hands-on projects our students are used to working on, but hopefully this will only be for a short time.

    To our parents: Please make sure your child completes the work sent to them by their teacher. And if you have any questions, email your child's teacher. Our paraprofessionals may also be emailing and/or calling our students to help them succeed. All work will be given a pass/fail grade. Our goal is that no students fail.

    To the community: Our challenge is to make sure we are producing the best students to work in your industry. We know we have great students and are hopeful this unusual way of teaching will keep them actively involved in their chosen programs so they are job-ready when we return.

    Even though we are living in different and difficult times, our teachers are doing an outstanding job making sure our students continue to receive enriched educational learning materials. We thank all parents and the community for your support and look forward to having our students back in the classroom!

    If you need anything or have questions, please do not hesitate to email me at dmccarthy@wactc.net. Stay safe and stay in touch.

  • Coronavirus COVID-19

    Posted by Dr. Dennis J. McCarthy on 3/4/2020

    Western Area Career & Technology Center is taking the Coronavirus very seriously.

    • We have educated all of our teachers on the virus and ways to stop it from spreading.
    • We have put Purell hand sanitizers in every classroom to be used by students and staff. 
    • Our school nurse has spoken to each technology about hand washing and proper ways to deal with cold and flus. 
    • We have given each teacher a kit containing Kleenex, disinfectant wipes, disinfectant spray and hand sanitizers. 
    • Purell hand sanitizer has been placed in every bathroom. 
    • Our custodians sanitize each technology at night when students leave for the day. 
    • We are also cleaning every door handle in the building in case proper hygiene is not being followed. We are staying very proactive for this virus and will continue to use this practice throughout the school year. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns of what we are doing to deter the spread of the Coronavirus.
