Sunday Night Announcements




     Hello Wonderful Wendell Families,


     Happy August... I am ready for school to begin!  Here are the Sunday Night Announcements for the week of August 3rd:



     WES Virtual Open Houses - Thursday

     I hope that you are able to join me on Thursday, August 6th for our Virtual Open Houses!  These sessions will be an opportunity for me to share WES-specific information about the reopening of school... You'll have the chance to ask questions and share concerns as well.

     K-2 families will be invited to join us at 11:00am, and 3-5 families at 1:00pm.  If you have children in both groups, you are welcome to attend either (or both).  The links to participate via Google Meet or telephone will be posted on the main page of our website on Thursday morning.  If you're unable to make it, a copy of the Google Slides presentation will be shared in next week's Sunday Night Announcements.


     School Reopening Update

     On Tuesday, July 21st, the WCPSS School Board voted to delay bringing students to campus under Plan B.  All students will now begin the year participating in remote instruction.  The weeks of August 17th and August 24th will focus on orientation, meet and greet opportunities, and distribution of supplies.

     During these first two weeks, students will not be divided into A, B and C groups.  The first day of school for remote instruction at Wendell Elementary remains unchanged (Monday, August 17th).

     Please take some time to view this comparison chart, which details the differences between Plans A, B, C and Virtual Academy.


     WCPSS Virtual Academy Update

     The enrollment window for the WCPSS Virtual Academy is now closed. 


     Requests for 2020-2021 classroom teachers

     Thanks to those of you who shared your requests for classroom teachers... Ms. Armstrong and I are now working on class rosters, and will no longer accept requests.


     Return to School Guide and Return to Campus Website

     Return to School Guide has been provided by WCPSS for families to review as we prepare to enter the 2020-21 school year.  Please review the links and resources for families on the WCPSS Return to Campus Website, and take a look at the Frequently Asked Questions as well.


     Summer Hours

     Front office hours over the summer (now through Wednesday, August 12th) continue to be 9:00am-3:00pm, Monday through Friday.  Anyone entering the building must wear a face covering.



     Thanks... Looking forward to seeing you all at our Virtual Open Houses on Thursday!
