Returning to In-Person Learning
Last Updated: 10/23/2020
On September 29, the WCPSS Board of Education approved a building re-opening plan. This page is intended to support students enrolled in Plan B and their families. This information does not apply to students registered for Virtual Academy for either the Fall or Full Year. If you need to request a change in the platform in which your child is enrolled, please complete this form. Please check back here for updates and information regarding in-person learning at Brier Creek Elementary. The WCPSS Return to School site also contains helpful information for parents.
Health & Safety
Students and families are required to familiarize themselves and agree to follow our health guidelines, as described in the Return to Campus Family Guide and posted on wcpss.net/ReturnToCampus. These guidelines are mandatory and will be strictly enforced. All parents are required to sign and return this attestation form during your child's first week of school. To learn more about the Daily Health Screening, Face Coverings, and other Health & Safety guidelines, click here.
Rotation Calendar: When to come to school, when to stay home
It is important that families keep track of when students are in school and when they are learning remotely. Please click on the link below to see the calendar for your grade and cohort:
- Cohort 1: K-3, Pre-K, and EBS
- Cohort 2: K-3, Pre-K, and EBS
- Cohort 3: K-3, Pre-K, and EBS
- Cohort 1: 4th & 5th Grade
- Cohort 2: 4th & 5th Grade
- Cohort 3: 4th & 5th Grade
Cohort assignments were sent to parents on October 9, 2020. If you are unsure which cohort your child is in, please reach out to your child's teacher.
When students return, we will have very few devices for students to use during the day. Students will be expected to use devices from time to time and it is important they have time to use Istation and Dreambox seeveral times a week at minimum. If your child has a WCPSS device, we expect that the device will go to and from school with your child. If you have a personal device that your child can bring, that would be very much appreciated. Please complete and return a Bring Your Own Device form or send an email to your child's teacher letting him/her know you consent for your child to use their device at school.

Visitors and Volunteers
To protect the health of our students and staff, only essential visitors and volunteers will be permitted to enter the school building. As always, the front door will remain locked and all visitors will ring the doorbell for assistance. Now, however, visitors will be asked to remain outside unless staff deems it essential for them to come into the building. All visitors who enter the building must pass a Health Screening before entering.
Lunch will be free for every student this school year! We are planning for students to eat in the cafeteria, seated six feet apart and facing the same direction. This video explains the new cafeteria procedures that in place for the safety of students and staff.
