4th Quarter Platform Change Request | March 23, 2021



Dear Parents,


In light of current events, including the recent passage of Senate Bill 220, decisions last night by the WCPSS Board of Education, and changing conditions in our community regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering one final opportunity for families to move between Virtual Academy and In-Person learning. 


All requests to move between learning platforms must be made no later than Thursday, April 1, 2021 via completion of this form. Please be aware that the ramifications of moving between platforms for 4th Quarter include:

  • The likelihood of students being assigned a new teacher for 4th quarter;
  • Re-organization of classes and teaching assignments for teachers; and 
  • Schedule changes for in-person teachers and students.

All parents should be aware of the potential for teacher and schedule changes for ANY STUDENT, not just students who may be requesting a change. Parents will be notified of teacher changes on Monday, April 12 via email. Changes will take effect when we begin the 4th quarter on Wednesday, April 14. 


Parents should also be aware that in-person learning is happening under “Plan A,” which means students come to school every day, not in a rotation. Classes are regular size, up to 21 in K-3, and up to 29 in 4th & 5th Grade. While it is important that everyone follow our health protocols, in Plan A, social distancing is minimal and can only be achieved to the extent possible given the number of students in a space. For more information about what it means to return to Plan A, please refer to the WCPSS communication from 3/22/2021


You only need to complete this form if you are asking for your child to CHANGE how they are attending school for the 4th quarter. PLEASE DO NOT FILL IT OUT IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILD TO REMAIN WHERE HE/SHE IS.
