Greetings WPS Families,

I’m sending the COVID dashboard update a day early to remind you of a deadline and inform you of a vaccine clinic taking place this weekend.

Parents who wish to have their unvaccinated students participate in pool testing should register via the parent portal by tomorrow Friday, November 5.  Now that our elementary students are eligible to be vaccinated:

  • Students who are in the process of being vaccinated are still eligible to participate in the pool testing.
  • Fully vaccinated students cannot participate in the pool testing.

We have been informed of a pop-up clinic through Community Health Centers (CHC) in Stamford’s Scalzi Park this weekend.  Below are the details:

CHC Peds Pop Up Clinics (5+)
Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Nov 5, 6, and 7)
8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
This is a drive thru vaccination site; you do not have to be a patient, no appointment necessary.

In addition, you will find more information on vaccine locations via this link from the CT Department of Public Health:  ct.gov/covidvaccine.  Type in your zip code and select Pfizer (Kids 5-11).  A list of vaccine locations will come up.

We have no positive confirmed cases of COVID-19 and only one student at WIS in quarantine due to close contact.

We appreciate everyone’s collective efforts to keep as many students and staff as possible in school.

Sincerely,

Lisa Wolak
Superintendent of Schools
