• Wappingers Continuing Education - Winter/Spring 2020 

    In support of efforts towards community containment of the COVID-19 virus, and based on the recommendation of the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral and Community Health, effective Friday, March 13, 2020, we are cancelling or postponing all Adult and Continuing Education programs which are held in any of the WCSD Schools, except for approved Before and After School Child Care, until further notice.

    Any refund issues will be addressed once we are allowed back into the office. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
