Important Message to our WSD Middle School Families and Staff-March 4, 2021

Dear WSD Families,
Thank you for your patience during this pandemic. Please know that we have heard official information from Orange County Healthcare Agency that, based on the current trends, the likelihood is high that Orange County should meet the criterion for case rate to be in the Red Tier as early as next Tuesday. Additionally, Orange County should be in the Red Tier by March 16th, allowing for middle schools to reopen as early as March 17th. Schools are expected to follow all health and safety guidance at this time. Please note March 17th as a high possible date for all our middle schools to start hybrid in-person instruction for families that selected this option. A follow up communication will be forthcoming next week once the Covid numbers are confirmed. Should you have any questions, please contact your school principal.

A Message from Superintendent Dr. Paik - February 23, 2021

Thank you for your patience and flexibility. We have updated news that the average of the 4 zip codes of our schools in our district boundaries has reached 8.2% which is actually a 7-day lag. Hence, we expect today’s actual data to be better than this. Therefore, this message is to inform you that we will be resuming in-person hybrid instruction starting next week , week of March 1st for all elementary schools. Monday, March 1st will remain as a virtual learning day, and Tuesday, March 2nd is our first day of students returning to the in-person hybrid schedule.
