REMOTE INSTRUCTION UPDATE DAY 1
Our first day of remote instruction is about to come to a close and the reports from around the district have been extremely positive. Teachers are posting their assignments and our students are actively engaging in meaningful learning experiences. To help everyone feel connected during this time, feel free to share photos of your child's remote learning experience so we can post them on our social media feeds. You can email them directly to your child's principal or the Superintendent.

Here's some additional information and update from today.

TECHNOLOGY
Since Friday, we have handed out over 800 Chromebooks and continue to do so for families who complete the TECHNOLOGY NEEDS SURVEYFurthermore, if you require technical support because some aspect of the Chromebook is not working email tech.help@wwrsd.org.

CONTINUITY OF EDUCATION PORTAL
The district website now has a direct link to our Continuity of Education resource portal via the COVID-19 button located on the top menu bar. Click the button to be taken directly to the central location for all district-wide information related to teaching, learning, and operations.

DISTRICT HOURS OF OPERATION
To assist with our transition to remote instruction, beginning tomorrow, all school and central offices hours of operations will be from 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM daily. If you need to speak to someone during that time, please call or email. School visitors should call in advance of coming to a school or office. We will change our hours of operation over time as needed.  

WELLNESS
Last, but not least, don't forget to reserve time each day to take care of yourself. Take frequent breaks and deep breaths. Keep an eye on loved ones and encourage them to do the same.
