Here’s some important info for parents whose students on Blended Cohorts (A/1, B/2, C/3) are returning to in-person learning. Cohort B will return on Feb 17.
We’ve made every effort to make our students and staff safe, including:
Setting up classrooms for social distancing.
Ensuring that cohort sizes are as small as possible.
Ensuring that classrooms will be sanitized between class periods.
Before Coming Back In Person
Bus riders are required to submit a one-time Health Attestation form stating that they will abide by all health and safety protocols before they will be assigned a seat on a bus. Forms can be found at wcpss.net/busform. Riders who have already successfully submitted this form do not need to submit it again. We ask that students follow all safety guidelines, including wearing a face covering the entire time they are on the bus. Bus route information can be found at www.wcpss.net/routes.
The Return Student Accountability and Required Health Protocols form must be signed and returned. Click here for more info This form is required for students returning to in-person learning. Students on Cohorts A, B, C must submit signed copies of the accountability form by February 12th.

Classrooms are arranged for students to be socially distanced and face in one direction. Students will not get up and move around during class. They will not share materials. School laptops are available for students who need them and will be sanitized between users. Teachers will also maintain social distancing.
Students will move in a timely manner to their next class between classes. COVID protocols do not permit socializing in halls or common spaces.
Upon dismissal, students will report directly to buses and vehicles and depart from campus in a timely manner, continuing to maintain social distancing.
Students who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 will be escorted to the Care Center where they will remain until their parents are contacted to take them home. Siblings of those students will also be directed to go home. This link tells you more about what happens if your child is escorted to the Care Center.
Students may choose to bring lunch or may order from our free lunch menu. Lunch from the cafeteria will be delivered directly to students’ classrooms. Here's next week's Breakfast and Lunch Menu Week of 2.17.21 Breakfast and lunch are free, but lunch must be ordered in First Period.

Students will be eating lunch in classrooms for the remainder of the school year. There will be no off-campus lunch.
Students must be socially distanced at least 6 feet from others when removing their face covering to eat or drink.
Individuals should not walk or stand within 6 feet of anyone who has their face covering removed.
All individuals should leave their face coverings on until everyone in their area is seated with food packages open and ready to eat. Then everyone should remove their face coverings at the same time. Individuals should replace their face coverings as soon as they are done eating.
The eating time will only be long enough to allow students to consume their food without socializing.
