Dear WHS Families:
In my April 7th letter I indicated that WHS would begin a full day schedule on Monday, May 3rd, with classes ending at 2:30 PM for all students. Yesterday during advisory, teachers reviewed the upcoming changes in the schedule and lunch service. Here are some key points:
The 7:45-2:30 bell schedule is attached here; Monday is an E-Day. Wednesday early dismissals will continue through the month of May, with an 11:45 AM dismissal and no lunch service.
Extended Learning Hour and mask break time have been eliminated from the schedule. Students may continue to take mask breaks in the lobby and courtyards when they have free time. We will have three lunch waves as we have in the past, with seating available in the cafeteria, gym, and courtyards. To maximize distancing, the cafeteria has individual student desks, and the gym has tables that hold a maximum of two students. At lunch, students will be required to record their seat location via QR codes for contact tracing purposes.
Students who wish to purchase lunch may do so by pre-ordering through Nutrislice. Here are the details on ordering. Lunch wave and former cohort (blue/gold) must be specified when ordering; this is to help cafeteria staff organize lunch pickup. Students may also purchase breakfast and snack items a la carte in the servery.
We will continue to follow our current expectations for remote learners. We require a minimum of 24 hours notice for any change to learning status (in-person or VDL). When a change in status is elected by the parent, it must be maintained for a minimum of 10 school days. Students cannot elect to participate remotely on a daily basis. All in-person and VDL students are permitted to participate in co-curricular activities provided they have met daily attendance requirements.
Finally, please join the Weston High School administrative team for a Parent Admingle/Q&A on Wednesday, May 5 from 9:00 AM to 9:45 AM. This is an open discussion for Q&As from families of WHS students.
