Mission Statement

The mission of the Whiting Lane School, a diverse community enriched by the Early Learning Center and Special Needs programs, is to ensure that all students acquire the academic, physical, social and emotional foundations necessary to become respectful, responsible citizens and lifelong learners. While forging a strong home, school, and community collaboration, we will promote academic excellence, build critical thinking skills, inspire creativity, and value the unique potential of every child.

To report an absent or tardy - please call 860-233-8541. Please call the school office before 9:00 a.m. if your child is going to be absent or tardy. We appreciate your consideration in making this telephone call.

Safe Driving
Please obey all posted signs and traffic regulations when driving on school grounds or near our school. Remember the parking lot is closed during arrival and dismissal times. 

Telephone Messages
It is the policy of Whiting Lane not to interrupt classes to convey telephone messages to students. We request that early dismissal or after-school plans be finalized prior to students' arrival at school each day since we cannot guarantee that telephone messages will be conveyed prior to dismissal. If there are changes in dismissal plans please send a note to your child's teacher.

After-School Plans
Please make sure to send in a note to your child's teacher whenever there is a change in your child's after-school plans. Unless there is a note, children will follow their usual after-school arrangements, i.e., ride the bus, go to WLEDC, or walk home. Please plan ahead and try not to call the office with changes in dismissal plans since we cannot guarantee that telephone messages will be conveyed to students prior to dismissal.
