Explorers,

Changes to the Start of the School Year

The district announced today that it will delay bringing students back to campus under Plan B. Instead, all students will begin the school year in online instruction.

The first day of school for students’ online instruction are as follows:

August 13: Modified*
August 17: Traditional and Year-Round

*The start date for Modified calendar schools has been changed from Aug. 3 to Aug. 13. View updated calendars.

All students will have a second opportunity to apply for the WCPSS Virtual Academy on July 27 - July 29. The application will close on July 29 at 5 p.m. Families who have applied to the WCPSS Virtual Academy and would like to withdraw or change their application, should contact their schools directly.

Changes to the Modified Calendar

The start date for Modified calendar schools has been changed from Aug. 3 to Aug. 13. The start date was extended to allow more time for teachers and administrators to prepare instructional platforms to support remote learning.

Please contact the school on Tuesday 9:00-1:00 pm or Thursday 12:00-5:00 pm with any questions.

Whew! We will get through this and I can’t wait to see your smiling faces (virtually of course)!

My Best, Mrs. Graf
