Dear WLSCS Families,
Welcome to the 2020/21 school year!
Student registration for returning students started on July 15. Each school office staff has provided parents/families with specific information about online registration. A short survey is provided during registration regarding parent/family educational preferences for the fall semester. This survey is not binding: parent/family preferences are being requested to provide the administration with the necessary data for planning and determining the viability for both onsite and eLearning options. It is critical that parents/families register early as possible so that the administration will have up-to-date data to make informed decisions.
Start of School
WLCSC will provide onsite instruction for students who wish to attend in person and a virtual/eLearning option for those students who have a documented medical/home-life situation or for parents who wish to keep their children at home. An eLearning day is scheduled for everyone on August 19. The central office will send out to all parents and students educational information regarding COVID-19 and safety protocols. On August 20, those students who chosen onsite instruction will report to school and those who have chosen the virtual/eLearning option will begin. More information about this will be given by building administrators in the coming weeks.
WLCSC School Board, administration, teachers, and staff members are committed to ensuring a safe-school environment. While no plan is perfect, we believe we have the components, procedures, and protocols in place to safely open our schools. We are going to need everyone’s help, support, patience, and understanding as we start this process. Also, please remember that things may change between now and the start of school. For now, we will start with this reopening plan and begin the process for starting school in August. With everyone working together, we will be able to keep our students, teachers, and staff members safe as we reopen our schools. We look forward to having everyone back in August.
