Dear WHS Parents,
I hope this newsletter finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy. Never has it been more obvious that health is wealth and family and friends are most dear.
Today marks the beginning of the third full week of distance learning and the 26th day since our high school closed its doors. We are all working to make sense of the world we are living in and to define our new homebound life. According to Child Mind Institute, setting and sticking to a regular schedule is key, even when you’re all at home all day. Kids should get up, eat and go to bed at their normal times. The purposefully designed distance learning approach that our high school has adopted supports this research. Principal Wolak encourages parents to help your teen follow the new school schedule (a copy is provided below). We are fortunate to have some level of live class time in our district, as compared to many districts across the state, and need to give our faculty time to define how best to teach their subject matter and cover as much curriculum as they can. Each week has brought subtle changes as both students and teachers adapt to this new style of education. Please be patient during this unsettling time. Like many of you, our teachers are juggling work obligations and trying to protect and nurture their loved ones.
