Earlier Tuesday, the school district released a new Reopening Plan to help families prepare for the upcoming school year amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In the document, the district outlines planning, health and safety, COVID-19 outbreaks, cleaning operations, and distance learning among other topics.

As part of the Reopening Plan, President Malena Raymond, WCSD Board of Trustees and Dr. Kristen McNeill, Superintendent, include a message to families, saying in part:

The 2020-2021 school year will look different from years past as we continue to confront challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to assure you that our highest priority remains protecting the health and safety of our 64,000 students and more than 8,000 staff members. We are committed to providing the supports, guidance, and resources our children and families need to find success in school.
