Updates to WES Protocols & Procedures

 

As we continue to monitor the declining number of Covid-19 cases at our school and in the community as a whole, we are updating some of the WES procedures. Please note that as we implement these changes, we will continue to monitor any changes to our data.

 

We also have begun receiving questions about the impact of student COVID-19 vaccinations to the attendance and return to school guidelines. The most significant change for students who become fully vaccinated will be the removal of the requirement to quarantine if exposed (at school, in the home, or the community). The links to the WCPSS policies can be reviewed here: 

 

 

Literacy Resource for Families

 

NEW RESOURCE! Literacy at Home (Digital Children’s Reading Initiative) The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Office of Early Learning is pleased to announce the newest resource to support young readers in North Carolina, “Literacy at Home.” As part of current legislation, Senate Bill 387 directs NC DPI to develop and share a digital children’s reading initiative designed to support the continued growth of North Carolina’s youngest readers.

 

The site is home to easily accessible resources in the foundational areas of reading supported by the science of reading. Developed for each grade level, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, resources are available to support phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and oral language. To easily locate the resource, click here.
