High School Schedule for Week of 1/25/2021
The West Virginia DHHR County Alert System Map for Wayne County on Sunday, January 24, 2021 is “Red”. Wayne County Schools is closed for all students on Monday, January 25, 2021 for a scheduled Curriculum Development Day. Because of Sunday’s Map Status, High School Students in the Monday/Tuesday group will continue with remote learning on Tuesday, 1/26/2021 and will not report to school. Wayne County’s color status on the Wednesday, January 27, 2021 map will determine if the High School Thursday/Friday group can report this week. The WV DHHR County Alert System Maps only affects grades 9 – 12. All other grade levels will report on Tuesday and Thursday/Friday as scheduled.
• Students will report for in-person instruction on a blended learning schedule. Students will report on the same schedule utilized first semester. In-Person instruction for students will be two days a week (Monday/Tuesday group, Thursday/Friday group).
• Students in grades PK - 8 will report for in-person instruction unless the student’s school/classroom is closed due to quarantines/COVID cases. WVDE/DHHR County Alert System Maps will no longer automatically trigger countywide cancellation of classes for grades PK-8.
• Students in grades 9 – 12 will report for in-person instruction unless Wayne County is “red” on the DHHR Map. Sunday’s DHHR County Alert System Map will determine if the Monday/Tuesday group will report for in-person learning. Wednesday’s DHHR County Alert System Map will determine if the Thursday/Friday group will report for in-person learning. If schools are closed for in-person learning due to a “red” designation, students will transition to remote learning. In addition to Sunday and Wednesday, High Schools will be subject to closure if Wayne County is red on the DHHR County Alert System Map at any point throughout the school week and will reopen if orange or better on the Sunday/Wednesday map. High Schools can also have individual classrooms/school closed due to quarantines/COVID cases regardless of the DHHR County Alert System Map color.
• A two-day blended schedule allows for a lower building occupancy increasing the ability to social distance and limiting student contact. A two-day schedule also allows the district to continue distance learning enabling a smooth transition to remote learning if a classroom or school is shut down due to quarantines/COVID-19 issues.
• Wednesdays will be utilized for teachers to conduct distance learning activities (planning, parent/student meetings, office hours, etc.) Wednesdays will also serve as meal preparation days for distance learning days/virtual students. Meal pick-up will be available at all school sites.
• Student schedules will consist of three days of distance learning via Schoology.
• The district will consider expanding in-person learning to 4 or 5 days of instruction when COVID-19 numbers improve in the community and/or when all staff members have been provided the opportunity to receive vaccinations.
• The Wayne County Virtual School will remain open for parents/guardians who prefer a virtual learning environment opposed to in-person instruction for their student
• If the district is closed for weather related reasons or if an individual school is closed for power outages, water main breaks, etc., students will transition to remote learning for the day.
• Masks will continue to be required for all students grades 3 – 12 and masks are strongly encouraged for grades PK – 2.
