     Hello Wonderful Wendell Families,


     Here are the Sunday Night Announcements for the week of March 7th:



     New Stuff


     Masks Recommended, Not Required

     From WCPSS:

     On Monday, March 7th, face coverings will become recommended but not required in all settings and all school-related activities.


     Two additional things to know:

     - Staff have been instructed not to monitor face coverings... As they are recommended but not required, students can choose to wear them or not.  If you have a preference, please communicate that to your child(ren).   

  - Staff have also been instructed to neither encourage nor discourage students from wearing face coverings.
