Dear Colleagues

As we approach this Veterans’ Day, I ask each of us to pause and reflect on the brave men and women who fight for our freedom every day and to those who have given their lives in service of our country.

Have a great long weekend and stay warm!

David Lussier

WPS Internal Job Postings on District Website
​​​​​​​
Please be aware that we added a new feature called “Internal Job Postings” under the Faculty tab of the District’s website. We will post all of our internal jobs under this website tab. Therefore, you will no longer see internal job postings in the bulletin. This new way of posting will allow us to post internal positions any day of the week.​​​​​​​
