Ongoing Evaluation: We will continue to monitor public health guidance, virus mutations and evolving science, legislative action, community transmission rates, and our own school-based data, including case counts, vaccination rates, and more. When an adjustment to our mitigation strategies is advisable, we will implement and communicate any changes as quickly as possible.

During this pandemic, we have learned so much and proven to be flexible, resourceful, and resilient. We have seen the extraordinary ways that our Wyoming school community works together to celebrate successes and support each other. We're looking forward to continuing to partner with our entire community to grow, support, and celebrate each student in Wyoming City Schools.
