Welcome WWCS Families!




We hope that you have been able to spend quality time with your family over the last few weeks.  As you are all aware, the district has been working diligently to provide the best possible education for a wide spectrum of families in our district. Student and staff safety is our number one priority which inherently affects the health and safety of our entire community.

The district is planning various options for the fall. Unfortunately, this pandemic evolves very quickly which does not allow us to settle on one plan at this time. We will continue to work throughout the remaining summer to adapt to the changing circumstances related to the pandemic. Below you will find the scenario plans that will be presented to our Board of Education for consideration. 

The district has been monitoring and planning and will continue to adapt strategies throughout the coming month. We know you may have questions and that information is developing rapidly.  Please watch our Return to Learn Updates page as we will be frequently updating this content as we have new information.
