Parents and Families

Updated 2020-21 WISD school year:

  • August 31-September 4: WISD staff will connect with each family to discuss individualized plans for students and families and review any needs for the school year, such as technology.
  • September 8: Fully virtual instruction will begin, which will include re-engaging students and families, reviewing protocols, and establishing new structures and routines.
  • September 21: Virtual instruction continues, but if it is safe to do so, individualized face-to-face programming may begin for a small number of low-risk students or families with low-risk staff and in low-risk spaces.
  • September 28: WISD will begin re-evaluating virtual and individualized programming, impact, and results, as well as current COVID-19 data and research, to make adjustments.
