Letter to WWCS Students and Families

Dear Wayne-Westland Families,

We believe that in-person instruction is most effective for our students. However, given certain mitigating factors such as staff shortages, the inability to offer transportation to a large portion of our students, and overall student absentee rates, we decided to transition to remote learning for the week of January 10, 2022, for all PreK-12 grade students.

We have moved middle and high school final exam week to the week of January 18, 2022.

Schedule

  • January 10-14, 2022 : All PreK-12 grade students remote instruction
  • January 12-14, 2022 : Full day of remote instruction for grades 6-12
  • January 14, 2022 : ½ day of instruction for elementary students
  • January 17, 2022 : No School - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • January 18, 2022 : In-person learning resumes for all PreK-12 grade students
  • January 19-21, 2022 : Full day of in-person instruction for elementary students
  • January 19, 2022 : ½ day of instruction for high school students Final exams
  • January 20, 2022 : ½ day of instruction for middle and high school students Final exams
  • January 21, 2022 : ½ day of instruction for middle and high school students Final exams. Full day of instruction for K-5.

 

As required by the Michigan Department of Education, school districts must have a 75 percent daily pupil attendance threshold to be counted as a day of instruction.

By offering remote learning, it gives students who are in quarantine or without transportation the opportunity to log into their classes to continue to receive instruction from their teachers. Students will follow their regular school schedule.

Your child’s principal and teacher/s will share more information about Chromebook distribution, class schedules and logging into their virtual classrooms. All buildings will remain open. Please contact your school office if you have any questions.

The Champions Before and After School program will still operate each day next week but will be located at Stevenson Middle School, 38501 Palmer, Westland 48185, for students currently enrolled in the program. Students who are not enrolled, placement will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information, please call 734-294-1222.

The high school athletic events will run as scheduled and information about food distribution times and locations will be sent out this weekend.

Thank you for your continued support and patience.

Sincerely,

John Dignan, Ed.D
Superintendent
