What plan is currently in place at WASD regarding COVID-19?

On June 8, 2021 the Board approved the Transition Plan which provides guidance for the period of June 7, 2021 through July 30, 2021.

How were stakeholders notified?

The Transition Plan was presented at a public meeting on June 7, 2021 and posted on the WASD website on June 8, 2021.  An email was sent to all employees and parents/guardians on June 8, 2021 which included a link to the plan.

Who needs to follow the Transition Plan?

All students, employees and visitors who use WASD facilities and/or WASD transportation services during this period are required to follow the Transition Plan.

If I’m not at school/work during this period, do I need to follow the plan?

No.

Are face coverings required?

Yes, per the Transition Plan, face coverings are required for students, employees and visitors through June 27, 2021.  On June 28, 2021 face coverings become optional for all individuals.  WASD will revise this date if the Governor removes the face covering mandate prior to June 28, 2021.

Do I need to report exposures, being tested or positive results?

We need to receive reports regarding students or employees who are using WASD facilities, programs or transportation during the period of June 8 - July 30, 2021.  This would include exposures, being tested for COVID and/or receiving positive COVID results.  Parents/Guardians of students should report this information through the school office.  Employees should contact their direct supervisor.  Parents/Guardians and employees must also contact the WASD Director of Pupil Services, Jessica Lengle, by email at jlengle@wyoarea.org, or by phone 610-374-0739 x1112.

We do not need to receive reports regarding students or employees who are not using WASD facilities, programs or transportation during this period.

Will the Transition Plan be modified?

Maybe. If the Governor, PDE or DOH revise mandates for school districts during this period, the WASD Administration will revise the Transition Plan and share updates with stakeholders.
