Families, this is the first in a series of communications. Today’s update is an overview, and we know you will have more questions. We are preparing communications to answer each of these questions in more detail throughout the rest of the summer.

Welcome to our Return to School communications page. Westlake Charter School will use this page to continually update our communications in response to the latest information pertaining to school reopening in the fall. At a minimum, we plan to update this page on July 12th, 19th, 26th, August 2nd, and 9th, leading up to the opening of school on August 12, 2020.  This is the first in a series of communications.

Today’s update, for the week of June 28th includes a brief overview of many of the decisions that came out of several planning meetings, including teacher leadership meetings, administrative team meetings, our Virtual Parent Town Hall Meeting and our June WCS Board Meeting.

The graphic below will introduce our community to some of the practices we have developed to follow health and safety guidelines for reopening school. Next, below our graphic overview, you will see our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section. We have organized our response to questions from our community based on our five areas of planning: 1) Health & Safety, 2) Academic & Social-Emotional Instruction, 3) Tiered Support, 4) Logistics & Operations, and 5) Communication & Collaboration with our Community. These FAQs will be updated regularly as information evolves.
