Important News about Central Office Departments Relocating

As you are aware central office will be moving from the Kramer building over the next several months.  As you can imagine, this move is very complex and it is our intention to keep everyone as informed as possible in order for the process to have the least impact on the operation of the school district.

The district wants to inform all staff and the public regarding the first of the central office moves to the newly-renovated section in the rear of the high school.  Small sections of the new central office space are ready for move-in, so a few departments are transitioning to that space immediately while the rest of the space is finished.

Staff should enter these spaces with an ID badge through the side door beyond the loading dock.

Pupil Services Department

Over this weekend, the Pupil Services Department will be moving to Windham High School. 

  • Starting at noon on Friday, January 12, please use the main number 465-2512 to communicate with this department because extensions will be disconnected.  Staff will also have limited access to district email.
  • Please be patient.   It may be Wednesday, January 17 before everything is fully functional.
  • Department staff person Anne Tyler will remain at Kramer in Room 227 after the move to handle any unexpected walk-in visitors until the new space is fully functional.
  • To meet with a Pupil Services staff person while the rest of the new central office space is being completed, please make an appointment in order for the pupil services department to arrange for meeting space. (Neither central office conference rooms nor reception facilities at the new central office are ready yet to accommodate visitors.)
  • Inter-office mail to Pupil Services should still specifically be directed to Pupil Services Department-Kramer, not yet to the high school.

Department of Family & Community Partnerships, including Before and After School Program

Some members of the Family & Community Partnerships department are moving over this weekend to Windham High School.

  • Starting at noon on Friday, January 12 please use the main number 465-2595 to communicate with this department because extensions will be disconnected.  Staff will have intermittent access to email.
  • Please be patient.   It may be Wednesday, January 17 before everything is fully functional.
  • Homeless Services will not be moving yet, however.   Coordinator Wineida Cruz, the contact for new arrivals from Puerto Rico, will still be registering students at the 2nd floor of Kramer, but now in Room 227 at the opposite end of the corridor.  Signage will be posted directing walk-ins to her new location.
  • To meet with Bill Stover or Jennie Navarro over the next few months while the rest of the central office space is being completed, please make an appointment so a suitable meeting space can be secured. (Neither new central office conference rooms nor reception facilities are ready yet for visitors.)
  • Inter-office mail to Family & Community Partnerships Department should still specifically be directed to Family & Community Partnerships Department -Kramer, not yet to the high school.

Food Services

  • Director Eric Volle has moved his office to near the cafeteria of Windham High School.
  • Administrative Assistant Carol Smith remains at Kramer to facilitate purchasing and finance arrangements, and will move later in the year. She can be reached at her extension 2608.

Facilities Department

  • The administrative offices for Facilities have already moved to the high school to oversee the construction process for central office and a maintenance garage which is under construction there. They can be reached at their regular extension of 2335.

Next Steps

  • The next push will come to prepare the new central office space for a move of several departments, including the Superintendent, over April break.  Finance and Human Resources will be the last departments to move.  The goal is to have the central office move complete as soon as possible to free up resources and staff in order to move Early Childhood Center after school is out.
  • Construction is also going on at Windham Middle School in preparation for the Early Childhood Center moving there over the summer.  Parents were informed before the holiday break that some classrooms utilized by Thread City were relocated to other parts of the building so renovation could begin. 

We appreciate your understanding and support as we embark on this project. We realize that there may be some inconveniences but will work to keep these to a minimum.  If you have any additional questions, please contact Mary Rival in the Assistant Superintendent’s office at extension 2526.
