WWS Updates - May 22, 2020

  • Weekly Update - May 22, 2020

    Hello Rocks!  Happy first week of summer break!  We hope you are enjoying your time with your family and we also hope Mother Nature will deliver some nice weather for the holiday weekend! 

    We are looking forward to receiving guidance from Governor Holcomb within the next few weeks regarding school reopening protocols.  Rest assured, we have organized and initiated our internal planning process focused on teaching and learning, health and safety, and operations. 

    We encourage you to remain flexible and open minded as we prepare to reopen our buildings and return to school.  We pledge to keep our families posted on those details as they emerge.  Thank you for all your support!  Here are your WWS updates for the week! 

    Parent Survey 

    We need your feedback!  We have partnered with Panorama to create a survey to gather feedback from our families about eLearning, social and emotional learning, and how families have been dealing with these challenging times.  This survey will be sent to families next week.  Please take some time to complete the short survey.  This information will help guide our decisions as we plan for reopening later this summer! 

    When you’re ready,  we’re ready 

    Check out this great video message from Mayor Cook, Dr. Grate and many others about opening up our great city!
