COVID-19: Our Plan

Last Updated: 4/13/2021 3:35 PM

For the week of April 12:

 

Based upon the current data related to the spread of COVID in our school buildings and local area, Wyoming City Schools will continue to be on the In-School Instruction learning plan next week, the week of April 12

On a daily basis, Wyoming City Schools is: 

  • Tracking our local data and evolving science
  • Following public health guidance
  • Monitoring the academic progress and social and emotional needs of our students
  • Tracking our ability to strictly implement our bundle of protective protocols

We are continuing to contact trace and communicate about all on-site cases among students and staff members. In the future, it is possible that we will need to shift our learning mode again on short notice (from in-person to hybrid or full remote) and students, families, and staff members should be as prepared for that as possible.

We will continue to share information at least weekly and it is crucial that students, families, and staff members restrict their activities outside of school to minimize the risk of introduction of COVID-19 into the classroom setting.

WCS COVID-19 Dashboard
