What can families do to help prevent the spread of COVID-19?
We recommend that family members who are eligible get vaccinated for COVID-19. A student that exhibits any symptom of illness should be kept at home. Parents should consider keeping students home if they have been exposed to a family or household member who exhibits symptoms.
What if someone in my home is awaiting a COVID-19 test?
If someone in your home is awaiting a COVID-19 test because of exposure or symptoms, keep all of your WSD students at home while awaiting the results and notify the school through the Front Office or School Nurse. If someone in your home is awaiting a COVID-19 test because of travel, eligibility for sports, surgery, etc., you may send your WSD students to school.
