School Closing Update 3-16-2020


SPECIAL STATEMENT REGARDING PUBLIC HEALTH

UPDATED March 16, 2020

 

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 public health risk and out of an abundance of caution, the District will remain closed through April 14, 2020. District facilities and campus grounds are closed. Please do not attempt to access the District facilities. Only authorized District personnel will be allowed on campus.  

 

During the closure period, all school related activities, meetings and events are cancelled. We will determine whether further cancellations beyond this timeframe are appropriate and communicate further calendar or program modifications on this site as needed.

 

In order to provide instructional continuity during the COVID-19 closure period, WAJ has prepared a plan for online learning for students. Starting at noon on Monday, March 16, students and parents will have direct access to instruction from WAJ teachers. Students can access this instruction by logging into their WAJ school email account OR by logging into the teacher’s website.  If they have a working email on file at school, parents should also receive communication from teachers.  If problems occur during this process, please email the teacher directly for help.  This instructional support is meant to keep students engaged with the course content during the closure period. Please do not worry if you have individual internet access or other issues that prevent you from engaging the online content. Simply do your best. We understand that other health or family priorities may take precedence on any given day. We thank you in advance for your patience and support of this mode of learning during the closure period.

We will continue to assess the evolving public health situation involving this virus and provide updates when appropriate. WAJ will always act with our community’s best interest in mind. Our goal is to resume with more traditional instruction and school day when the crisis is over and it is safe to do so.

 

Please be sure to follow the CDC and DOH guidelines for the prevention of contracting or spreading the virus and associated illness.

 

Thank you for your continued patience and support as we all work through this unprecedented situation.
