Fall Plans

Dear WSD3 Families and Staff,  

We’ve just completed week two of the 2020-2021 school year. While this year isn’t what we expected, I’m proud of our staff, students, and families for rising to the challenge to keep our students safe, healthy, and educated. It has been wonderful and refreshing to see students excited and engaged in the classroom, whether that is in school or at home. 


We are pushing back the in-person start date for students in grades 6-12 to September 22.
At that time, we will begin to transition those students back to school utilizing a hybrid plan.
In an effort to maintain social distancing as best we can and to help reduce class size, students will be divided into two cohort groups. We will do a slow rollout over two weeks. Schools will communicate class schedules and cohort information.


We want to remind our families of how and when a class or cohort is quarantined. If a student or staff have a minor or major COVID-19 like symptom they are sent to the nurses office to determine if these symptoms are a new or worsening chronic condition, or if the symptoms are accompanied by a new symptom. Any of the below symptoms could lead to a quarantine:

    • New or unexplained persistent cough

    • Sneezing

    • Runny Nose

    • Fever (100.4 Fahrenheit or higher)

    • Sore throat

    • Chills

    • Loss of sense of smell or taste

    • Diarrhea

    • Vomiting

    • Nausea

    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

    • Muscle pain

If your child has allergies or a pre-existing condition that causes these symptoms (not a new onset of symptoms) please bring in a note from your doctor. Knowing this will help eliminate the need to quarantine. 


We want to keep our schools open and together we can if we continue to wear masks, social distance as best we possibly can, frequently wash and sanitize hands, and most importantly, continue to self-screen at home and report symptoms. Please stay home when feeling ill and use the wellness screener.

Thank you once again for your patience, flexibility, and for believing in Widefield.
