ATTENTION PARENTS/GUARDIANS: The Westmoreland Board of Education, at its most recent meeting, amended the 2022-23 school calendar and changed May 26 and May 30 from school days to vacation days. This was possible because the district used fewer emergency closure days than they had planned. So, there will be no school on May 26 or May 30.

The Westmoreland Jr./Sr. High School Drama Club put on an awesome show over the weekend! "Honk!" the musical is a story about an ugly duckling who falls into his mother's nest and is rejected by almost everyone. Its meant to send a message of tolerance!

A message from Mr. Migliori: "The Westmoreland Central School District along with the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office are investigating an incident that occurred earlier today where a student made alarming comments and immediately went home. Officials with the Sheriff’s Office were notified and met the student at the home, at which time the individual and the parents were interviewed about such comments. Out of an abundance of caution the campus was closed during lunches. Our schools are always on “Lockout”, and we have a police presence in all of our buildings. We will not tolerate inappropriate comments at any point in time. Safety is our top priority and we will continue to investigate any such concern and take appropriate action."
A message from Superintendent Rocco Migliori about an incident: “Earlier today a distraught student in the Jr/Sr High School made some inappropriate comments and abruptly walked out of the building. I immediately contacted law enforcement, the school's School Resource Officer, and began to search for the student. Because we were unable to locate the student before lunch began, I closed the campus for lunch so as to not interfere with the investigation by law enforcement. At no time was anyone in danger. The purpose of closing the campus was to assist law enforcement until the student could be located and thankfully it was a success. Please know that our buildings are on “Lockout” everyday as part of normal procedures to ensure the safety of all students, staff and the community.”
