Bulldog Bulletin Update for July 29th


Please complete the WCPSS Technology Needs Survey by July 29th (Today)


As we prepare to return to school in an online environment, every K-12 student will need a laptop and Internet access in order to complete assignments, participate in instruction, and collaborate and learn with others.

We’re asking all families with a student in grades K-12 to complete this survey for each student, regardless of your school, whether you have applied to the Virtual Academy, whether you have a device or whether you need a device. (Pre-K students’ technology will be addressed separately by the Office of Early Learning.)

Although the district intends to provide a device for every student in the future, some families may choose to provide their own laptop or desktop at this time. If you choose to purchase and/or provide a laptop or desktop for your child, we recommend an up-to-date Chromebook, Windows 10, or Apple laptop or desktop. Mobile devices, such as phones and tablets, typically cannot provide an adequate experience for online learning. 

Please complete this survey no later than midnight on Wednesday, July 29.

Coffee and Conversation


As I mentioned before I know families have a lot of questions that we are still waiting to be answered about the 20-21 school year. I wanted to be available to talk, even if I can not yet answer all of your questions. We will meet on Thursdays at 9:00 for casual conversations. Feel free to bring your favorite cup of coffee!
