Important Health Update and Plan

COVID 19 Update
We continue to monitor the coronavirus and are following guidance and direction from the Governor, CDC, State and Local Health Departments. Governor DeWine announced that the state is NOT recommending the closure of K-12 schools at this time. School officials are working with staff to make contingency plans in the event we will need to close school.  
 
Communication Plan
You will be notified by email, one-call system, website and social media in the event of a school closure. Details will be shared regarding how we will handle school logistics shortly following any announcement of a school closure.  

Extra School Events & Gatherings
The Governor reiterated today, his strong recommendations about no mass gatherings. He also alluded to some harsher measures in regard to “orders” about mass gatherings. The science behind this is called “Social Distancing” and is a tool to reduce and slow the spread. The goal is to prevent overwhelming our infrastructure, as we have seen happen in other parts of the world.  

WHS Parent/Teacher Conferences scheduled on March 11th will be held remotely . This means that teachers will be present at school and available to speak with families on the phone. Please email your child’s teacher directly to schedule a time to talk. The teachers will also take the time to reach out to parents by phone and email. Email addresses can be found at wilmingtoncityschools.com/staff-directory .

WHS Theatre Performances scheduled will be restricted.  The performance will only be held on March 12th. It is limited to only two tickets for the cast and crew to invite close family or friends. Only those with the special ticket will be permitted to attend this special performance. All other performances will be canceled. These guests may only attend if they are in good health.  

  • If you are in an at-risk demographic (elderly, immunocompromised or have other health issues) for your protection, you should not attend. If you live outside the Wilmington/Clinton County community you should not attend.
  • When in attendance, you should keep social distance. Please refrain from hugging, hand-shaking, and physical contact.

All refunds will be made at a later date and information will be sent out regarding our refund plan.

Athletic Events.  We currently do not have any indoor athletic events scheduled to host. We will communicate any restrictions or cancellations when necessary. 

WMS Project Trust Camp starting on March 11th is cancelled. We will do our best to reschedule this at a later date.

Music Concert Events that are scheduled from March 12th through March 29th are cancelled.
