WHRSD Re-Entry Plan Presentation

Dear WH Families:

We are pleased to inform you that on March 3, 2021, The WHRSD School Committee voted to approve the return of students to in-person learning on April 5, 2021 in two learning module options;  in-person or fully remote. 

The Hybrid learning model will be eliminated.  If your child is in a Hybrid cohort, they will be moving to in-person, five days per week.  If your child is in the fully remote module they will remain in the fully remote module unless you contact your school principal. 

Please contact your child's principal (preferably by EMAIL), no later than March 10, if you plan to change from hybrid to full remote or from full remote to in-person.     

March 10th is a hard deadline as this information is critical to our plan for a full return to in-person learning.

All students moving from Hybrid to in-person will be assigned a seat on the bus. If you do not wish to have your child ride the bus, please complete the Bus Change Request form on our website at Bus Change Request Form.

We will keep families informed as additional information and detailed logistics  become available.  Social distancing protocols prioritizing six feet of distance and a minimum of three feet will be utilized as practical as possible.
