Return to Learn Updates
On Monday, September 14, Wayne-Westland Community Schools buses equipped with wifi will be parked in areas around the district for students to access online learning. Students will NOT board the buses as the wifi signal on the buses will extend about 400 feet from the school bus. Here is the schedule with the times and locations.
Dear Wayne-Westland Families,
I am excited to welcome everyone back to the 2020-21 school year which begins on September 1. We realize there are many different emotions surrounding the beginning of this new school year due to the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic which has affected each of our lives in one or more ways; it has also created a unique response to the typical first days of school. It is also the reason that we cannot approach the beginning of this school in a traditional way.
We recognize the mix of excitement in anticipation of school starting with the new way this school year will look for our students and families. We know the social/emotional well-being of all our students, staff, families and community is paramount. To support our students, staff and families in the transition to the new school year we need to allow time to ensure that:
- We are meeting all students’ academic, physical and social needs right from the very beginning;
- Parents and guardians clearly understand how to best support their children in a remote environment;
- Teachers get professional development to use the tools available to promote student success.
I want everyone to remember that a building does not make a school community; people make the school community. The next few months will present challenges and opportunities for all of us. Certainly, this is a time of adversity. But with adversity comes opportunity. By working together, we can ensure that the Wayne-Westland Community School District remains the stable force and spark that our children need to provide a GREAT future. We will navigate this crisis together. Thank you for your continued commitment to your children and Wayne-Westland Community Schools.
In closing, I have provided links to some helpful information to refer to during these first few weeks of school.
