During the COVID pandemic everyone has had to make significant adjustments to remain as safe from the viral infection and spread as possible. It is within this uncertain environment that all public schools have been tasked with developing and updating plans that address the perpetually evolving and complex situations created by the COVID environment. WAJ’s goal is to meet our mission and provide safety concurrently, while following the law and meeting the diverse needs of all students.

Teaching and Learning
Based on current data and guidance, while WAJ is making every effort to prepare for in-person instruction, online instruction will be necessary during the 2020-2021 school year. WAJ has planned providing instruction following a hybrid model that combines in-person instruction and remote learning. Parents will always have the choice to remain in the remote learning model. However, ALL PARENTS MUST BE PREPARED FOR ALL REMOTE LEARNING. If the District cannot meet our standard for in-person instruction outlined within the plan, a decision to go full remote on a particular day, for some or all students may be necessary. Any decision to close the building and conduct remote learning only will be communicated with families in a similar manner as when an emergency closure day is called for inclement weather.
