Dear Wyoming City Schools Families,
Much has been learned about COVID-19 and K-12 schools in the last year. I could not be more pleased that public health authorities, a growing body of medical research, and our own first-hand experience here in Wyoming have demonstrated that schools can effectively use mitigation strategies to minimize the risk of in-school COVID transmission. With the overwhelming interest in vaccination that we have seen in our staff and high school students and the likelihood of vaccination becoming available for younger children in the approaching months, we have an additional, powerful mitigation tool available to us now and in the future.
Also evident is the value of in-person learning for our students academically, socially, and emotionally, with more and more families choosing to move away from the online learning option. Due to reduced interest in online learning and our inability to provide the necessary staffing and resources required to offer a high-quality online option, next school year we will return to in-person learning in our schools.

Now and in the future, we will continue to monitor public health guidance, track our local data and evolving science, and make adjustments as needed. If you ever have specific concerns about your child’s learning or need support for extenuating circumstances, please reach out to your child’s principal or school counselor.
Perhaps the greatest asset we have in Wyoming City Schools is our incredible school-community partnership. This partnership has been so valuable to all of us during this pandemic. Thank you!
