The Wentzville School District is committed to the health and safety of our students, staff, and community. This resource will be updated regularly as we receive new information related to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) from the St. Charles County Department of Public Health, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The administrative team has been working throughout the summer in collaboration with staff and stakeholders to prepare for our students’ return to school and learning in August. Parents and staff were surveyed multiple times in an effort to address concerns and incorporate a variety of perspectives in the plan to start the new school year.
On Monday, July 20, the Roadmap to Reopening Plan was shared with the Board of Education. Parents have the option of choosing in-person learning with phases that will change depending on the health conditions in the community and in our schools, or 100% virtual learning for their student. Our goal is to provide high-quality instruction and learning opportunities in a clean and safe environment for students and staff. The in-person option includes three different levels that individual schools or the District as a whole may need to move to at any time based on the status of transmission in our community and the guidance from health officials. This plan will be updated as necessary and any changes will be communicated to staff and families as quickly as possible.
STATUS UPDATE: On August 5, Dr. Cain shared with the Board of Education that he plans to begin the 2020-2021 school year at Level 2: Blended Learning and remain there through the first quarter. He added that if needed, we could move to Level 3 during that time.
