Distance Learning January 6-14th, 2022

1/4/22

Dear Parents of Woodland Park Academy, 

Today was a great day to welcome back students into the new year!  However, we were unable to see 86 of our students and 7 staff members due to various reasons, one of them being COVID.  We currently have 5 staff members and 4 confirmed students that have COVID.  None of these cases have been in the building.  Many of the remaining absent students/staff are either waiting on COVID results or quarantined due to the rapid spread of COVID.  

For the health and safety of our Woodland Park Academy community, we will be moving to Distance Learning from Thursday, January 6th through Friday, January 14.  We will return to face-to-face learning Tuesday, January 18th as January 17th is observed for MLK Jr..

We believe that it is imperative that we move forward with extreme caution so that we offer our Eagles the BEST education while keeping them healthy and safe. We know this can be challenging for some families so we want to give you advance notice for you to prepare for the remainder of this week and next week. Wednesday, we will prepare your children for their Distance Learning experience and deploy technology, books, and other needed material to your children to bring home with them to use while we are remote.  

Students should go to WPA’s Distance Learning site daily and find their grade level.  It is important that ALL students join the Zoom meetings so we can meet the attendance expectations required by the State to “count” the day.  If we do not have enough students in attendance, we will have to make up the school days at the end of the year.  

Please know that this was not an easy decision to make, but it is necessary as our students are our #1 priority.  While the students are out of the building, we will continue deep cleaning and sanitizing the building to ensure our Eagles return to a healthy environment.  

 

Thank you so much for your support during this temporary transition.
