Dear Parents/Guardians of West Wing School,
As we return back to in-person school, I would like to reiterate the safety protocols that we already have in place at West Wing School. We are completely committed to keeping everyone safe and healthy. As we continue to practice our safety protocols, all students and staff will continue to wear masks at school. Students are to bring paper sacks with their lunch, or receive a free hot lunch at school. Please make sure to have your child bring a water bottle from home. If students bring their own non-disposable water bottles, they will be able to fill them with filtered water at any one of our water filling stations.
Students will eat with their grade level peers in the lunch room, and are seated 6 feet away from each other in the multi-purpose room. Once students finish their lunch, the entire grade level moves to the playground together, as a cohort. We have been implementing these safety protocols since the beginning of the school year. Masks are not worn while the students are eating their lunch, nor during their outside activity time. Students are given mask breaks during the school day on the field.
It is our duty at West Wing School to continue to keep our students safe. It is important for all of us to keep one another safe, by practicing social distancing, wearing masks and washing hands. In a strong effort to stay healthy, we are asking for a few things from our school community. Please keep your child at home if they are feeling ill. If you or someone in your home is being tested for Covid-19, we ask that you notify the school immediately, and keep your child home from school. Please send your child to school with a minimum of two clean masks daily.
If we all do our part, I know that we can safely mitigate this virus. I am blessed to work in a strong and committed community that has the best interest of our West Wing children in mind.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions and please know that your child is in safe hands.
Committed to staying healthy and safe!
Principal/West Wing School
