Dear Students and Families, Thank you so much for adapting so quickly to virtual learning, we understand that this year has not been easy for anyone, and we are very grateful for your continued support and understanding during this ever-changing time. After meeting with our Administrators, Directors, and communicating with School Board Members, and consultation with Trinity Muscatine Public Health we plan to transition back to hybrid learning starting on Monday, December 7th. Our ELC students (Preschool-Kindergarten) will be following a temporary A/B hybrid schedule from December 7th - January 15th. The ELC plans to transition back to full face to face learning every day, assuming that there are no further issues, on January 19th. We know that this temporary ELC hybrid schedule is an inconvenience to our families, but we needed to put this in place to ensure optimum staffing and safety measures during this difficult time. ELC families will receive further communication tomorrow regarding this temporary change. Full Story: https://www.wl.k12.ia.us/o/wlcsd/page/return-to-hybrid-learning-december-2-2020
