Letter to Wayne-Westland Families

Dear Wayne-Westland Families,

Yesterday Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Director Robert Gordon held a press conference to discuss the current COVID numbers and the need for additional restrictions over the next three weeks. Director Gordon announced an emergency order under the Michigan Public Health Code (MCL 333.2253).

This order requires school districts to suspend all in-person learning at high schools starting Wednesday, November 18, through Tuesday, December 8, 2020, with exemptions for English language learners and special education students. As a reminder, all Wayne-Westland Community Schools students are currently and will continue with distance learning until at least January 19, 2020. We will suspend all in-person testing and services for students until at least December 8, 2020.
 

  • Buildings Closed
    All schools and district offices will be closed to the public from November 18 until at least December 8, 2020. You can contact your child’s school via an email to the teacher or principal or by calling the school’s main phone number.
     
  • Champions
    The Champions program will continue at their sites from November 17- 27. From November 30 through December 4, Champions will be located at Marshall, 35100 Bayview, Westland. December 7th, the Champions program will return to their local building sites.
     
  • Food and Material Distribution
    Food distribution and material distribution will continue from November 18-25. There will be no distribution from November 26 through December 4. Food and material distribution will resume, as scheduled, on December 7, 2020.
     
  • Sports and Extracurricular
    All school sports (practices and contests) and extra-curricular activities are suspended effective immediately through at least December 8 or until these new orders are amended.

The State of Michigan has provided some helpful information regarding the new orders.

As a community, state and nation, we have seemed to hit the wall in our fight against the spread of COVID-19. There has been a dramatic increase in the number of COVID-19 cases over the past several weeks and the term “COVID fatigue” has been heard more and more. After eight months of cancelled plans, uncertainty, worry, and continuous efforts to mitigate the spread, we are all just getting tired of “dealing with this.” We are all hitting our wall. But now is the time where we must dig deep, help each other, remind each other, and conquer the wall together. Thanks for all you do and for making a difference. I encourage everyone to do their part and remain committed to following safe practices and protocols that we know effectively slow the spread of COVID-19 and help all of us as a community to overcome this wall. Please try to refrain from being in large crowds and continue to follow all of the safety measures to help combat COVID-19.

As soon as we have updates and more information, we will share it with you. We are thankful for your partnership as we work together to promote the learning, safety, health and well-being of all.

Please remember: Wash your Hands and Mask-Up Wayne-Westland!

Sincerely,

John Dignan
Superintendent
