WCS welcomed back cohorts of students in Young-Fives, Kindergarten, and Third-Grade. The return of small groups of elementary learners represents the first phase of available in-person instruction across the district as part of the WCS Hybrid Learning Plan.
Parents of elementary students had the option of selecting an AM or PM in-person cohort or continuing with remote learning. Teachers at Explorer Elementary and Discovery Elementary will prioritize mathematics and literacy during in-person instruction. More information on the WCS Hybrid Learning Plan can be found here.
