With the outbreak of the pandemic in March, our world has changed, and we must adapt to this change in all facets of our lives including how we educate. When our students were no longer allowed to be physically on campus, WCDS moved quickly to have a continuum of educational services through virtual teaching and learning for our students in all grade levels. As a result, our students successfully completed the 2019-2020 school year, prepared to move on to the next grade level and college.
As we approach the 2020-2021 school year, we know that our mode of operation will have to be modified as we adapt to state and federal requirements, regulations, and recommendations, as it pertains to COVID -19. The good news is that WCDS is poised to reopen on August 19th with our students on campus, in the classrooms with seated instruction, unless otherwise restricted by any future government mandates or requirements. This includes our full range of scheduled course offerings as well as athletics. To this end, the safety of our students and staff are paramount as will be reflected by safety measures, precautions and protocols implemented daily.
We ask parents to partner with us and be understanding with the processes and procedures we will need to take which will include temperature checks, health screenings, social distancing, restrictions on school access for students, parents and visitors, recommended protective equipment as needed, including face masks/face shields, and changes in lunch schedules, and delivery. We have made necessary changes and upgraded our cleaning and disinfecting procedures inside and outside the building including playground equipment, working with our cleaning company and in-house custodians to assist with this effort.
As we approach and move closer to the first student day scheduled for August 19, we will provide additional details on our plans to re-open for the 2020-2021 school year. Please be assured that the staff and Board of Trustees are constantly reviewing updated recommendations and protocols as we lock down our approach for the next school year. Our focus continues to be providing the best delivery of educational services possible with the safety and wellness of all in light of the existing conditions and limitations of the current ongoing pandemic. Your continued support and understanding as we maneuver through this situation together are appreciated.
Please see the link to the plan below. If you have any questions, please reply to this email or send a separate email to: email@example.com. We will create a link to FAQs based on your questions and our answers.
Thank you for your patience, understanding and partnership. We look forward to starting the new school year!
Dr. Steven D. Taylor
Interim Head of School
