Explorer Express for 4/1/20

Medication Pickup


Due to the extended closure of all public schools, families who need to pick up a student’s medication or any personal items may do so TODAY Wednesday, April 1st between 12 pm and 3 pm. 


Parents will be required to follow the same medication administration guidelines that were in effect  before schools were closed. 


Due to state and local health directives, please limit the visit to only the family member needed to pick up the medication or personal item and always practice safe social distancing by staying at least 6 feet apart from others. We will have WES Staff on site providing pick up directions. 


Do not come to the school to pick up items if you are sick. Call your school instead to discuss other arrangements.


Field Trip Refunds


All remaining field trips for the rest of the school year have been canceled. If you have already paid for spring field trips that have been canceled, you may choose between the following three options:


1. Donate the money to the school field trip fund. This will be used to lower the costs for field trips for next year and to aid families who cannot afford trips.
2. Have your money roll over to go toward your field trip payment for next year
3. Receive a refund (check) from the school. Refund checks will be done after spring break (at the earliest). They will be made for the amount left minus any non-refundable deposits.


If you do not respond by Friday, April 3, the remaining money will be donated. In order to receive a refund, you must respond via this form.


Thank you!


WES Remote Learning Schedule Coming


By Friday, WES Staff will be sharing a Remote Learning Schedule with families.  This schedule will provide families with a daily routine and structure for students.  We will also continue to provide resources that families can use to remediate and extend learning for students oustide of their daily assignments.  The schedule will include a daily time to reach classroom teachers through email, phone and/or using Google Meet.


In addition, WCPSS and WES are committed to providing all students with access to learning materials in the next few days.  We are finalizing plans to distribute school Chromebooks to families in need and packets of work to families without Internet access.  Thank you for your patience during this time.


Spring Break


As a reminder, WCPSS Traditional Schools will be observing Spring Break the week of April 6th-April 13th.
