Instructor: Mrs. Sammataro   
Dean of Students for Classes 2018 and 2020

I'm a proud graduate of Westerly Public Schools, who is lucky enough to give back and work in the district.  I graduated from URI in 1999 with my Secondary Education BS Degree in English.  I taught two years at the middle school and then transferred to the high school where I taught grades 9-12 English for 11 years, serving as department head for seven.  I was appointed to the Dean of Students position in 2012.  In 2015, I completed my Masters in Educational Leadership from UNE.  I hope to continue to serve Westerly and its students for many years to come.  
Announcements
Welcome Back!
It's an exciting start to a new school year! It is my fifth year as Dean of Students and I couldn't be happier to return to meet and greet the new freshmen Class of 2020 and catch up with my Class of 2018, who are now juniors. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Let's Go Dogs!
Community Service
A minimum of 30 hours of community service is required by graduation. Complete the form and return it to your dean of students, who approves and tracks hours performed. Listen to announcements and read bulletins for opportunities to volunteer. Search #whsgivesback on Twitter
Daily Attendance
Attending school and courses daily and on time is a priority for all faculty, staff and students. Come to school every day and all day. Absences must be called into the attendance office 315-1597 by 8:00 am or an automated phone call will go home. Absences are only coded "excused" if medical or judicial documentation is provided; phone calls and notes from parents/guardians are appreciated, but do not excuse an absence. We respect a parent/guardian's prerogative to keep a child home for a short illness or family activity, but students exceeding 20 unexcused absences (10 for semester courses) will be in danger of losing course credit(s). Tardies and early dismissals also may endanger course credit(s); being late for school or leaving early greatly affects your learning experience. Again, only medical or judicial documentation excuses a tardy or early dismissal. Please refer to pages 21-23 of the WHS Student Handbook for the Attendance Policy; it can also be viewed under the District Student Handbooks' link on the left of this web page.

After School Detentions
After school detentions are after school from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Detentions are assigned for excessive unexcused tardiness to school (4 or more times) and for any other infractions deemed inappropriate by a dean or administrator.Failure to report to detention results in TWO detentions; failure to report to those two results in partial in school suspension (in the Restorative Room); continuous skipping will result in more severe consequences, including a parent meeting.. Be safe. Be responsible. Be respectful.
