Together, we can do this...As we complete another week of our distance delivery educational model, I want to thank all of our parents for your flexibility, patience, and communication with WPSD. WPSD fully recognizes that this transition hasn’t been an easy one.Families are juggling, in ways we never had to do so before, heightened work responsibilities, additional responsibilities for our children’s education, as well as all other pressures this pandemic has caused for each family that are invisible to the rest of us. WPSD staff members are also experiencing similar types of pressures.As stated in previous communications, WPSD has no desire to add additional stress or pressure on our families as we are all still trying to define what this situation might look like. As we complete this week of distance delivery instruction and prepare for our next week, please keep the following thoughts at the forefront of all of our decisions and actions:• Ensure that we are all taking care of our primary responsibility - our families and child(ren). Please take the necessary precautions to keep our family members safe and make time to just take care of each other and enjoy each other’s company. Family always comes first.• Help your student(s) engage with the educational opportunities WPSD staff members are making available for our students, when you can and as appropriate. We each need to ensure that this educational process is engaging and an enjoyable experience for our students and their families.• If there is any aspect of the course work or delivery model that just is not working well for you there is no need to beat our heads against the wall. Please contact your student’s teacher, principal, or the superintendent so that we can help find a solution to any challenges this delivery model might be causing your student or your family.WPSD fully understands that this educational delivery model is not a perfect situation for any of us; we want to ensure that WPSD is doing all within our power to help make this experience the best it possibly can be.
