WMS 2021-2022 School Year Information

July 23, 2021

 All new students, 1st graders and 3rd graders will begin Monday Aug 23 and all returning students will begin Wednesday Aug 25th.    

 

The newest guidance for schools regarding COVID-19 practices was released this week.   In accordance with both NCDHHS guidelines and recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics, WMS will continue universal mask wearing by ALL individuals on our campus.  This will include parents and staff, regardless of vaccination status, as we serve a student population not yet eligible for vaccination.  Students will again be allowed to remove their masks during recess.  Please know we will continue to monitor the guidance provided for schools and will make necessary adjustments to keep our families safe as we work to return to normal.   

 

We were very pleased to see that with the exception of masks, all other precautionary measures put in place last year may be suspended.   Parents will be allowed to enter our building again this year and special events may return.   This means we will have an in person orientation/parent meeting on Thursday Aug 19th.   We will also allow families to join this meeting via zoom or google meet if you are not comfortable with an in-person meeting.   We will send more details for this closer to the 19th. 

 

Grandparents' Day is also back ON!!   We are so excited about this as it is one of our favorite traditions that we greatly missed last year.
