COVID-19- Protocols & Procedures for the New School Year

At the time of this email, the guidance that schools are receiving is that students & staff who have not had the vaccine will need to wear masks when indoors. Because our students are under the age of 12 and cannot be vaccinated we are under the assumption that all of our West students kindergarten-fourth grade, will need to wear masks during the school day. More guidance will be released the first week of August.

Keeping our students healthy and safe will continue to be our top priority at West. We were pleased with the way we handled the pandemic last school year and feel confident that we are fully prepared to keep our students healthy and safe should our local health department decide that schools must continue with COVID procedures & protocols. We will release more information as it becomes available.
