To Our Parents and Families,
2020 continues to be 2020, a year like no other. But, thanks to you, the great staff and teachers at our schools, and our students, we have had a remarkably smooth first 39 days of school. Our students and employees have done a commendable job of adapting to new procedures, routines, and expectations. The stress is real, but our folks have handled this the WBR way, very professionally.
We would like to thank you, our parents, for helping us make a successful transition to Phase III for students in grades 7-12. We know that these students will benefit from being in class on campus every day. Students are doing a great job following safety protocols with more bodies on our campuses. To make sure we are able to keep our schools operating safely and remain open, we need your help. Please continue to notify us when your children are sick and encourage them to remain diligent following our safety procedures. It is very easy to want to relax when we get comfortable.
To our Virtual Academy parents, we want you to know we are working to get your children back on campus as soon as that is possible. Staffing virtual and face to face classes is a major undertaking and it takes time to coordinate those classes. We recently sent a survey to Headstart through 5th grade Virtual parents to learn how many of you would like to have your children attend face to face and how many would like to remain virtual. We will be sending the same survey to parents of children in grades 6-12. It may not be possible until January, but we are trying to get as many students as possible on campus before then.
Again, thank you for helping us make a smooth Phase II to Phase III transition. We plan to make the Virtual to On Campus transition just as successful and safe. Planning to do that properly will take some time.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience during yet another 2020 change.
