WEYMOUTH — Superintendent Jennifer Curtis-Whipple is pleased to announce that Weymouth Public Schools has launched a brand-new news portal website to serve as a hub for the latest updates, information and news about the district’s schools, students, faculty, events and accomplishments.
“This website gives us a standalone platform for parents and residents to be able to stay up-to-date on the latest district news and happenings,” Superintendent Curtis-Whipple said. “We want to highlight all of the positive and enlightening stories about the district and all of the hard work that our staff and students put in at our schools, or right now from their homes, each and every day. Additionally, we want the site to serve as the official source of important news announced within the district throughout the year.”
The website, news.weymouthschools.org, is integrated into the district’s social media channels and will automatically broadcast news blog content onto the Weymouth Public Schools Twitter and Facebook pages.
With a clean, user-friendly and mobile responsive layout, the news blog website allows for easy navigation throughout the portal. It can be accessed on computers, cell phones and tablets. It also has a search function where visitors can search for different topics or schools.
Parents are encouraged to sign up for email alerts on the site in order to receive the latest news blog content in their inboxes.
Parents and residents should still utilize the district’s main website, www.weymouthschools.org, to access the calendar of events, contact information, school committee meeting notices and minutes, important documents and notices and to view general information about the district and its schools. A link to the news portal website site can be found on the district homepage by clicking on “News Blog” in between the “Superintendent” and “Chapman Building Project” links.
