Virtual Learning

Our COVID Response Page

Welcome to our COVID response page. Below you’ll find all the critical information about how WVHS is changing the way we operate to reduce the risk of COVID infection.

We are doing everything we can to make sure staff, students, and families are safe.

Please check back regularly, as we will update the information here as conditions change.

The NYC DOE Return to School 2020 site section also has important information and resources for you. See the Update for Families letter.

Remote Learning Resources

Our school will be following the DOE model 3A for blended learning and remote:

Group A will always report to school on Thursdays and some Mondays (Group A and C alternate Mondays).

Group B will always report to school on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Group C will always report to school on Wednesdays and some Mondays (Group A and C alternate Mondays).

*Group D is remote all days

 

The days you do not report to school for in-person instruction, you must attend classes remotely.

We wanted to share a November calendar of the days for groups for in- person learning. The calendar below has been color coded by group.

BUILDING SAFETY: YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES WHILE IN THE BUILDING

We have put safety procedures in place to keep our students and staff healthy. 

  • Masks: Masks must be worn inside at all times by all adults and students.
  • Handwashing: Students and staff are expected to wash hands thoroughly before and after eating, after using the bathroom, if exposed to body fluids (like saliva or a sneeze), and at other times necessary throughout the day.  
  • Drop-off and pickup procedures: Please maintain social distancing between families during drop-off and pickup. Parents are not allowed to enter the building with their child unless arrangements have been made in advance with the office. Please move through the drop-off and pickup line as quickly as possible to make room for families behind you. 
  • Visiting our school: We are limiting visitors to the school during this time. Most parent-teacher conferences and other meetings can be held virtually. All visits must be pre-approved and scheduled with the office.
  • Illness: Students and staff exhibiting signs of illness or having a fever of greater than 100.0°F must stay home. If you or someone you know has COVID-19 (or shows symptoms of COVID-19 such as coughing or fever), it is required that you stay home or at a designated care facility for a minimum of 14 days. Please contact us via phone or email as soon as possible.
  • Directions for local COVID testing: Please visit the NYS Coronavirus Find a Test Site page to find a test site closest to you.

TECHNOLOGY: GETTING A DEVICE AND INTERNET ACCESS

We are committed to making sure that all students can successfully connect to online learning during their at-home learning days. 

  • If your student needs a laptop or tablet, fill out the Device Request Form to reserve your device. Borrowing a device is free!
  • If your students experience internet-connectivity issues with their iPads, they can request help through the Technical Support for Families form.
  • Borrowed devices should be used for school purposes only and kept in a secure location. Take your device with you on in-school days. 
  • If you are not able to get internet hooked up in your home, your child's teacher will work with you to provide alternative offline assignments.

REMOTE LEARNING EXPECTATIONS

During blended or 100% remote learning, your child is expected to complete all assignments assigned by the teacher. At the same time, we understand that working independently at home is different and difficult for many students, so we want to be flexible. 

  • Students and families should check Google Classroom daily for important updates from their teachers.
  • When signing in for virtual classes or meetings, students are expected to be on time, dressed for school and ready to learn. We suggest signing in 5 minutes before class starts. Please try to avoid background noise and distractions as much as you can.
