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.
