A message from WCS
This website is provided as a hub to support, inform and provide resources to parents, students, staff, and the community during the 2020-2021 school year affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Traditional, hybrid, and remote plans are being considered. These plans, when finalized, will be available here and will also be provided on each school's website.
Decisions are guided by the latest recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), orders from state and local governments based on the level of community spread, and by healthcare professionals.
The following guiding principles will be considered as we make decisions about our re-entry plans. When faced with a strategic decision and challenge, we will consider how to:
- Ensure the health and safety of students, families, and staff by adhering to public health recommendations
- Focus on continuing to raise student achievement by developing student and family focused learning pathways while still addressing each child's social-emotional needs
- Comply with local, state, and federal laws and regulations
- Collect and review up-to-date data and information from stakeholders to revisit plans as needed
