Dear Warrior Families:
We were patiently waiting to make sure that the staff’s second vaccine was on schedule. We now have confirmation that it will be administered on March 3. During our most recent staff survey, we realized that many staff members did have an adverse reaction to the vaccine. I am sure that you are well aware that it is difficult securing the services of substitute teachers throughout the state during this pandemic.
We are very excited to announce that all students are scheduled to return to school on Monday, March 8. During my last communication, information was presented regarding our blended operation as well as the vaccine for staff. On Monday, March 1 and Tuesday, March 2, we will have asynchronous learning (students engaging in working on their assignments at their own pace) so that the staff can prepare for our full school operation, Phase IV, on Monday, March 8. Staff members will be receiving the second vaccine on Wednesday, March 3.
Students will remain remote in asynchronous learning on Wednesday, March 3; Thursday, March 4; and Friday, March 5.
Note: Friday, March 12 is a scheduled records day and professional development day for staff. Students will not report. We will resume school for all students all week beginning on Monday, March 15. This should take us into Spring Break that begins the week of March 22.
Students in grades preschool to 6 will return to school after Spring Break on Monday, March 29. We are thrilled that students in grades 7-12 will begin in the new North Campus on Tuesday, March 30 after teachers have moved in on March 29. Thank you for your patience during Phase IV – GETTING ALL STUDENTS BACK TO SCHOOL.
In order for this transition to run smoothly, everyone is required to continue to wear masks, wash hands vigorously for 20 seconds, and follow the CDC guidelines of 3 to 6 feet. Thank you for sending your most precious investment to Winton Woods City Schools, a district of destination.
