Woodriver Issue #28 3/4/22

FROM PRINCIPAL GUY

Hello Wolf Pup parents!


We received our initial staffing for next year. Right now we are scheduled to have

13 classroom teachers. Before COVID we had 19 classroom teachers and this year

we have 16 teachers. One reason for the decline in the number of our teaching staff

is due to the fact that our 5th graders will be transitioning to middle school next year.

Another cause is due to inflation and a lack of increase of funding from the state and

the Fairbanks North Star Borough. We won’t find out if the state or borough provide

additional funding until June. Our district is projecting that Woodriver will have

about 340 students enrolled next year. With 13 teachers we expect class sizes to be

on average 26 students per class.


Thrivalaska, a child care organization here in town has reached out to our school in

order to seek your input about whether or not you would be interested in before

and/or after school child care here at Woodriver. If there is enough interest they may

rent our Multi-purpose room in the morning and after school. You can give your

input by using the button below, which links to their survey.
