District Return to School Update

As we prepare to return students and staff to school on Wednesday 1/5/22, please review the following ways to help us stay in-person.   

· If any household person is symptomatic or awaiting test results, please stay home and contact the school nurse for further guidance. 

The WCHD has not adopted the new CDC quarantine guidelines.  Once we receive guidance from the County regarding schools, we will make appropriate changes.
