UPDATED: Inclement Weather Process for Balance of 202-2021 School Year
With the winter weather officially arriving in Berks County, and the need for us to cancel school this week due to weather, we have been evaluating our plans for future inclement weather days.
In the current 2020-2021 school year calendar, we had built in two inclement weather make up days. We have now used both of those make up days. The closure on Thursday, December 17, 2020 will be made up on Friday, February 12, 2021. Our closure on January 26, 2021 will be made up on Friday, June 4, 2021.
We have made a decision that we do not want our students to need to make up any more days in June. Therefore the last day of school for students for the 2020-2021 school year will be Friday, June 4, 2021, which will be a half day. Any additional inclement weather days will become flexible remote learning days for all students in the Wilson School District.
We will be sharing information about inclement weather days through our district communication channels. You can review that process here.
Please note that secondary students will be following a Flex Day schedule on these flexible remote learning days due to inclement weather. Elementary students will have the ability to access independent, on-line learning activities provided by their teacher. This work will be posted by 9:00 am and will be available for students to complete anytime during the day. We are providing this flexibility to be responsive to the needs of our elementary families.
In addition, in-person special education students will not be coming to our school buildings on flexible remote learning days
In the event that we need to implement one of these remote learning days, your building principal will provide additional details regarding the expectations for the day.
As a reminder, it is VERY IMPORTANT that students and professional staff take home their devices and chargers every day from school.
If you have any concerns regarding technology during a remote inclement weather day, please contact our IT Department at email@example.com.
