Will WSA be open in the Fall?      

Yes, WSA will be open. Parents can choose between two different options:

  • Five days per week in-person attendance. 

Class sizes will be slightly smaller than normal in this option and students will be moved as far apart as possible. This option provides the best education of the three options.

  • 100% online.

Students in this option will only attend school online. Currently, there are enough students participating in online instruction that will allow WSA to assign a teacher in most grades to work solely with online students. This means that there will be daily Zoom lessons, assignments, and individual check-ins. Parents of students participating in online instruction will be required to supervise and assist their children to ensure that they are participating and turning in daily assignments. 


Will the school start and end times or calendar change?

Yes:

  • School times are 8:30-3:00 Monday-Thursday, and 8:30-12:00 on Friday. 
  • Breakfast will be served from 8:00-8:20 in classrooms. 
  • After school programing is canceled until further notice.
  • The first day of school has been moved to August 26th for 1-8th graders and to August 31st for Kindergarteners.  

What should I do if My Child is sick?
