Dear WSD3 Families,
As we end the 2019-2020 school year, I want to express my gratitude to you for helping us stay connected with your child through distance learning, and for being flexible as we continue to navigate through these trying times. We know this is a hardship on many of our families and we will continue to support you the best we can.
Please read the below for important district-related information:
The WSD3 Meal Distribution will continue through June 30 at our three site locations (Janitell, Sproul, Watson) from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. (No meals will be served on Memorial Day, May 25)
BE THE LIGHT - CLASS OF 2020
Please help us honor and celebrate the Class of 2020 by turning on the lights in as many buildings, businesses and homes for one hour on May 20, 2020 beginning at 8:20 p.m. (2020 military time) to brighten the night for all our graduates.
The WSD3 Transportation Department will have a school bus parade travel around our community during that time with lights on to show support. More details will follow next week.
Take a photo of your unique light source on May 20, and post it to social media with a congratulatory message for the Class of 2020 using the hashtag #BeTheLightCOS and #D3Class2020 so these graduates can see your support.
We have not yet received guidance from the state about what type of learning will be allowed or expected at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, however, it is likely to be one of three options:
a continuation of distance learning
in-person, physically distanced, COVID compliant learning
a hybrid of distance learning and in-person learning
Based on conversations with our Governor, we feel strongly we will return next fall with either physically distanced in-person learning or a hybrid distance learning/in-person socially distanced learning environment. However, real-time health data will guide this decision.
Regardless of final guidelines and expectations, we are working to create an environment where students and staff feel safe, healthy and successful. We appreciate everyone who has taken our WSD3 Distance Learning survey, and if you have not, please do so by 11:59 p.m. May 15, 2020.
