Western New York Maritime Charter Home

Message from the Commandant

I want to thank the Teachers, Cadets and Candidates of Western New York Maritime Charter School as we navigate the the threat of the coronavirus.  I appreciate the time and effort that everyone has shown becoming accustomed to remote learning so quickly.  Dr. Jetter, Ms. Fleming, Mrs. Mank and Mrs. Johnson did an incredible job of making sure that the teachers were ready to deliver instruction with new methodology.  Teachers have responded quickly and have prepared amazing lessons to keep our students learning.  We are planning at this point to be closed through April 17th.  The Middle School building will be closed from March 23rd until April 17th.  Mrs. Livingston will be working at the High School, all other personnel will be working from home.  Everyone will monitor their emails and will answer your questions in a timely manner.  Ms. Kritz and Ms. Meyer have been answering many questions and have helped students cope with the stress of this new situation.  Our counselors and disciplinarians have been busy supporting our students.  Our teachers have responded with great lessons and in many classes have been very creative and some are even having fun with the process.  Mr. Goodman has delivered packets to candidates and cadets and we have also started a limited lending library for those cadets who needed a chromebook.  I would also like to thank our parents for their support and patience as we learn this new format of teaching and learning.
