Calendar and School Schedule Updates

Posted by Adam Spina on 2/19/2021 7:15:00 AM

I continue to be immensely proud of our team here at WCS. They have worked tirelessly making preparations for returning our elementary students to a full day of school and expanding in-person learning opportunities for secondary students. We remain on pace to make this transition on March 1st. As our county superintendent noted in a recent article, now is the time for this to happen. That said, there will inevitably be some revisions to aspects of our model as it is evaluated over the first couple of weeks. Thank you in advance for your patience. Additionally, the District will be prepared to adjust to any new Covid related developments provided by updated guidance from health officials. Please continue to check classroom and school newsletters for more information. 

As communicated previously, Friday, February 26 will be a non-instructional day for in-person elementary students (Young-Fives through Fifth-Grade). This will allow time for staff to finalize logistics in advance of students returning on Monday, March 1st. All fully remote elementary sections will continue to receive instruction and the hybrid model at the secondary buildings will be unchanged on this date. 

The deadline for post-March 1st transportation changes is Monday, February 22 at 4:00 pm. Please contact the bus garage at (517) 655-1011. 

Effective March 1st, the District’s inclement weather plan will also be revised. On days where buses cannot safely operate and/or when roads are deemed unsafe for teenage drivers, WCS will be closed for instruction, including remote learning. Notifications will continue to be made via School Messenger. Road conditions in Williamston (to include roads in all parts of our district) may differ greatly. If you disagree with a decision to keep the schools open, it is always your right to keep your child at home. If you make this choice, please contact the appropriate school office so we know where your child is and that he or she is safe.
