WASHINGTON COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Pausing In-person Activities
Washington County Public Schools (WCPS) has been closely monitoring our community’s COVID-19 health metrics. Out of an abundance of caution, WCPS is taking a pause from in-person classes and activities for three weeks.
All WCPS students will transition to distance learning through online classes beginning Monday, November 16, 2020.
In-person activities may resume on Monday, December 7, 2020, depending on community health metrics.
In-person classes, athletic events, and other activities may continue through Saturday, November 14.
Sports and Extracurricular Activities
Beginning November 16, all athletic and extracurricular activities will be held online until further notice. Instructors, advisors, and coaches will share information with students and families about these arrangements.
Distance Learning Schedule
Students will remain on their school’s current school day schedule during distance learning. Your child’s school may be sending additional information regarding preparations for this change. Students who are attending school in-person should bring home their devices and any necessary class materials each night this week.
Grab-and-go Meal Sites
WCPS grab-and-go meal sites
will continue to operate from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Monday-Friday to provide children in our community with a free breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day. This service is available to any child who is 18 years of age or younger.
Review and Reassess
WCPS will continue to monitor and review community health metrics and further reassess the return to in-person learning for students. There will be no in-person instruction any sooner than December 7, 2020.
WCPS recognizes this decision may come with feelings of disappointment, uncertainty, and even additional stress as families make arrangements for their children during this period. We hope our community will take the proper precautions to help reduce the COVID-19 virus in the Washington County area, so that we may continue our progress with returning students to classrooms.
