Pre-K and K-5 students Transition to a Full Time Traditional Teaching and Learning Schedule Beginning Monday, January 25th

Wilson County Schools K-5 students will transition to a Full Time Traditional Teaching and Learning schedule beginning on Monday, January 25th.

Voluntary Pre-K and Exceptional Education Pre-K will transition to Full Time Traditional as well.

Students in grades 6-12 will remain on the current Hybrid Teaching and Learning model.

Masks/face coverings are still required for all students in grades K-12.

We will continue to monitor health data on a daily basis provided by our schools and our local health department. Our intent is to remain in these models, unless critical data points indicate that a change is necessary. Please keep in mind that if an individual school becomes too difficult to staff or illnesses cause a significant amount of absences, then the district would highly consider placing that individual school on a Remote Teaching and Learning schedule for a minimal two week period. This measure was applied multiple times during the fall semester. The reason was to allow for ample recovery and prevention time.

In contrast, should we eventually see trends that would support a safe Full Time Traditional Teaching and Learning environment for our 6-12 students, then that would be put into place.

We fully understand that the unpredictability of COVID-19 has caused many inconveniences; however, we are hopeful that today’s announcement provides a better outlook for overall consistency and planning for your household.

Families with K-5 students can expect to receive additional information from your respective schools about next week’s transition to Full Time Traditional Teaching and Learning.

While our families with 6-12 students will remain on Hybrid, please contact the cafeteria manager at your school if you need food assistance during this time.

As a friendly reminder to everyone, all of our schools parking lots have been made available as hotspots for internet services. Please take advantage of this additional support if you are having trouble with reliable internet access at home. Also, should you have any questions about classwork or assignments, then please contact your child’s teacher(s).
