       Spread Kindness 

I hope this message finds you well. As we settle into the rhythm of 2024, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to our students, families, teachers, staff, and community members for your continued support and dedication to our educational mission. We remain committed to meeting the diverse needs of our learners and fostering an environment where every student can thrive academically and also commit to creating a learning environment where everyone feels valued and supported.  

Soon it will be time to visit our schools for family nights and parent-teacher conferences.  Please stop in and enjoy all our school has to offer.  

In the event school is canceled, there will be a robocall made as early as possible.  The West Branch-Rose City Area School District covers over 500 square miles and weather conditions can vary greatly from one end to the other.  School administrators watch the weather closely and communicate frequently with surrounding districts and the road commission.  Keep in mind that even on days when school is in session, the roads may still be covered with ice and snow and conditions can change quickly. We care about all of our students, families, and community members, but we cannot know all of your driving situations. Know your safest route in bad weather and encourage young drivers to leave early and slow down for better control and reaction time.  Be safe!

Go Falcons!
