Letter to WWCS Families and Staff

Good Evening Wayne-Westland Community School Students, Staff, and Families,

What a great first week of school! This was one of the smoothest starts of the year that I can remember. Our students were able to open lockers, find their classrooms, navigate the technology, and acclimate themselves to what is going to be a great year. I want to thank all of you for your support and guidance.

Also, I want to inform you that we received reports of positive COVID-19 cases involving individuals connected with some of our schools. Those students who were in direct contact with any individuals were notified by our staff and are in quarantine. The purpose of this note is to ensure transparency with our entire school community by sharing information about a COVID-19 case involving an individual who was recently in one of our buildings.

We continue to work closely with the Wayne County Health Department, which will follow its protocols and communicate directly with those who may have been impacted. To protect the confidentiality, we do not release names in any COVID-19-related case. I appreciate your understanding and ask that you respect the privacy of those impacted. Wayne-Westland Community Schools’ response procedures for cleaning and disinfecting are being followed.

We all must continue to partner for the health and safety of students, families, and staff. Please take all steps to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. These activities include self-screening and keeping your child at home if they do not feel well, using personal protective equipment, distancing where practicable, and frequent hand washing.

Have a wonderful week.


John Dignan, Ed.D.

Letter to the Wayne-Westland School Community

Dear Wayne-Westland School Community,

The 2021-22 school year is right around the corner. We can’t wait to welcome our students back on Monday, August 30. All school offices are open and our team is busy preparing a welcoming and engaging environment at your school. Our high school bands and athletic teams are back on the practice field and secondary parents have received informational packets. You will also receive emails from your child/ren’s principal with school information.

Mask Mandate

Today, August 27, 2021, the Wayne County Health Department announced they are implementing a K-12 mask mandate for all schools in Wayne County. Effective immediately, all PreK-12 students, staff, and visitors, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, are required by law to wear masks while inside any District school or building. This is a mandate for all Wayne County school districts. Masks are not required outdoors for staff, students or visitors.

In addition to the mask mandate, the District will continue protocols that have proven effective, including self-screening, regular hand washing, use of disinfectant, distancing to the extent practicable, and contact tracing in combination with quarantine. While vaccines remain a personal choice, we join the health department and the many individuals impacted by COVID-19 to encourage you to learn more about their availability.

Please engage in daily screening and keep your children home if they do not feel well or run a fever.

For Families Who Use Transportation

Consistent with the federal mandate and the CDC's Requirement for Face Masks on Public Transportation, which includes school buses, face masks will continue to be required for students, staff, and drivers while using WWCS transportation services.


All athletic and activities programs will continue to follow MHSAA guidelines and Wayne County Health Department mandates. Until further notice, all indoor activities including practice, competitions, weight room, team meetings, locker room use, team dinners, etc., require all personnel, student-athletes, and spectators to wear a mask.

Information on the latest school protocols is on our District website and is included in our WWCS Parent Handbook. I also encourage you to reach out to your school principal should you have additional questions regarding building protocols or other back-to-school-related questions.

Our skilled WWCS educators foster excellence and growth in our students is about to begin! Thank you for your partnership as we launch another exciting school year. As we look to the coming year, I am excited about the traditions and positive experiences that are characteristic of every school year. We develop champions in the classroom, in competition, and in life here at Wayne-Westland CommUNITY Schools. Thanks for your continued support and assistance as we start a great new school year!


John Dignan, Ed.D.
