Blue/Green Phase  

Traditional Learning

All instruction is delivered in-person with some building and group modifications. Teachers and students maintain a normal daily schedule. Safety precautions are implemented to enhance staff and student safety.

Virtual Academy

A virtual educational opportunity for K-12 students will be provided as an option via distance education for students/families who have concerns about returning to school this Fall. Please note that requests to change from the virtual academy to in person, or vice versa, will be treated as a schedule change.  A student schedule is established at pre-registration and only extenuating circumstances should bring about a request for change.  All schedule changes must be approved by an administrator or the guidance counselors. This will be instructed and monitored by WPSD #1 teachers.

Face Coverings: In the Green phase, all staff and all students are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings. Face coverings are required if using school transportation.

Yellow Phase

Modified On-Campus
Students report to school on a modified schedule. Student Schedules may be varied to meet the learning needs of each child.  Multiple hybrid models of instructional delivery may be appropriate.  Instruction would be conducted in person and online.

Face Coverings: In the Yellow phase, all staff and all students are required to wear face coverings. Students will be provided breaks and allowed to remove their face covering when outside or in spaces that can accommodate social distancing.
