Hello Waynesboro families, The “Current Schedule” feature in the Sapphire Community Web Portal is still down. The Data Department has been in contact with programmers and developers at Sapphire in regards to the situation, it is a company wide issue for Sapphire, and they are working diligently to fix the problem. Additionally, we are not the only district affected by the interface switch over with certain features. As they work through these issues and things become available, the District will post and update on our website, social media and through a Boro Blast. We are also aware of new account creation issues and Sapphire is working through that as well. You can still see your learner’s schedule on the left hand side under “Courses and Grades” for learners in grades 6-12. Classroom teachers can be viewed by selecting “Student Information” for learners in grades K-5. We appreciate your patience and understanding as Sapphire works through these issues as they improve the Community Web Portal experience. Thank you.
The Community Web Portal is now open. WAMS and WASHS learners can see their classes under Courses and Grades. The color scheduler will be available to learners tomorrow. All learners should be able to see their homeroom teacher under student information. Transportation routes will be coming soon. If you have trouble accessing your portal, please reach out to your building secretary tomorrow morning. Thank you!

WASD is happy to announce that we are going to be providing a modified re-enrollment process if you are interested on June 1, 2, and 3, 2021, from 7:30 am - 5:30 pm at the district office, 210 Clayton Avenue, Waynesboro, PA 17268 Below is a flyer with more information and details with what you need to bring if you are interested in this opportunity. By completing the modified re-enrollment, this will secure your child's place in a classroom and will guarantee a start back in Waynesboro on the first day. This will also eliminate you having to go through our entire enrollment process and waiting on the registrar for an appointment (which begins on July 1, 2021). If you are not interested in this opportunity or do not have plans to return, that is okay too and we wish you the very best in your child's learning endeavors. If you would like to re-enroll and you do not take advantage of the modified re-enrollment at the beginning of June, you will have to complete the entire enrollment process over the summer. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to email@example.com and they will be happy to assist you with your questions. This modified re-enrollment is available for families who left WASD for Cyber/Charter for the 20/21 school year. If you are brand new to the district, or have attended home school, a private school, or a cyber/charter school prior to the 2020-2021 school year, you will be able to begin the enrollment application process on June 8, 2021!
