Beginning immediately the WWSC Mask Requirement will change to MASKS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. Please see the linked document for complete details. https://bit.ly/3rDOoqD STUDENTS CAN STILL WEAR A MASK AND SHOULD IF THEIR PARENTS HAVE INSTRUCTED THEM TO DO SO. Masks are still required on buses at this time.
WWSC will be on a 2 hour delay schedule Monday 2/7/22. Our staff is doing a great job getting our grounds in decent shape but we will need to retreat everything in the morning to prepare all lots, sidewalks and entrances. The delay also ensures that our buses, student drivers and staff will have full visibility to see approaching hazards. Shaded areas on our county roads still have significant amounts of pack and ice and will not be fully melted by this evening. There is also opportunity of refreeze in spots with standing water. We ask that you use the delay to give yourselves plenty of drive time to school. Be safe and see you all tomorrow!
WWSC will have the second virtual day on Friday 2/4/22. Remember that students have the entire weekend to complete and turn in their work.
Typically we do not announce closures based on forecasts, but the threat for very dangerous weather is probable. With that being said, we will be closed Thursday and Friday and have virtual instruction for those days. For the safety of staff, they will not be allowed to report to work on campus Thursday. If conditions persist the same may apply Friday. We are concerned that students may not have access to the internet or even electricity for portions of the next few days. Our CURRENT plan will be to have virtual days posted each day by 10 am. HOWEVER, an announcement could be made on Thursday night cancelling our Friday virtual day IF there is widespread power and internet outages. We will handle these virtual days a little differently. We will allow students the entirety of the weekend to complete the work. We will not require virtual meetings. There will be videos posted and work posted that needs to be completed. Teachers will make every effort to be available to students, but we realize that teachers may be equally affected by outages of electricity and internet. If your child is unable to complete assigned work due to outages please contact your child's teacher.

WWSC will operate on a 2 hour delay today Friday 1/28/22.
It is supposed to be bitterly cold in the morning. Our threshold for delaying or cancelling based on temperature is 0 degrees raw temperature or -10 wind chill or below. At this time the prediction of temperature is above that threshold. At this time, we will be operating on a normal schedule Wednesday 1/26/22. Please dress children appropriately for the weather. If the weather causes any issues with water and children need to use our shower facilities that can be arranged through our counseling offices.

WWSC is set for a return to in-person instruction tomorrow Thursday 1/20/22. The weather will be monitored this evening and announcement will be made about the schedule prior to 9 PM.
Planning Session and Board Meeting Scheduled for today have been postponed to Monday 1/24/22.
WWSC will move to virtual instruction from Monday 1/17/22 through Wednesday 1/19/22. The West Washington staff has been hit hard by this surge in Covid. We powered through this week of school, but the number of staff out sick grew exponentially each day. We already know that we will be shorthanded next week. We are attempting to keep this move to virtual as short as possible to allow us to get closer to full strength. It is our intention to return to full in person instruction on Thursday 1/20/22. https://bit.ly/3rh4wgh
Emergency Executive Session (Virtual)
Children that ride Bus 5 will ride a different bus this evening and tomorrow. This may change the time that they are picked up and dropped off. Please be ready and keep an out for the bus.
The weekly Covid Metric for this week is RED. Masks remain required through 1/19/22 when updated weekly data is released. With this most current round of Covid we are experiencing higher absenteeism and staffing is getting thin. If you or someone you know is interested in subbing as a teacher at the school, driving a bus or subbing in another area please contact us today! 812-755-4872
WWSC CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT- WW will now be closed and have a virtual day today, Friday 1/7/22. Many side roads in the southern portion of our school corporation remain slick. Particularly Posey and southern Howard Township. In addition, the very cold temperatures create a scenario where we don't want students waiting at the bus stop for extended time if a bus is delayed due to road conditions. Teachers will have materials and instructions posted prior to 10 am. Students should check their Google Classrooms and follow the instructions and lessons provided by their teachers.
