Dear WSD Families, I hope you are enjoying your summer. We are looking forward to welcoming all our students back for in-person instruction on September 1, 2021 keeping safety and health as a continued priority. As you have heard, state health agencies has released the new K-12 School Guidance that allow for all students to return to in-person with the implementation of health and safety guidelines. The only changes to the guidelines this year is the elimination of physical distancing which allows for all students to return to full time in-person instruction.
Dear WSD Families, I hope you are enjoying the summer. As you may have heard, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and California Department of Public Health (CDPH) recently released their COVID-19 K12 School Guidance confirming that we are moving in the right direction of opening schools for the next school year, 2021-22 to 100% in-person learning model. In both documents, the foundational principle of the guidance is that all students must have access to safe and full in-person instruction and as much instructional time as possible. In summary, schools are expected to implement safety mitigation layers to prevent transmission such as hand washing and mask wearing when indoors.
Tuesday, June 15, Governor Newsom lifted most of the restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including wearing masks and social distancing. However, as a K-8 school district, many of these guidelines will remain in place while state organizations determine appropriate new guidelines for us. Please plan to continue to have your child wear a face covering to school, and practice social distancing for the last 3 days of school. We will continue to ask that adults remain outside of the school facility to drop off and pick up students.
