A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

Welcome back students, families, community, and staff!

We are looking forward to all that the next school year holds for you. School buildings re-opened
on September 8th, and so far, are running smoothly on a skeletal staff.

While our community is ranked as medium-risk currently with DHSS, we want to be aware and
prepared for any eventualities with COVID-19 transmission in Wrangell. Therefore, we will be
implementing a number of precautions, such as enhanced disinfecting, requiring face masks worn
indoors for staff and students, routine hand washing, and practicing social distancing where space
allows. Beyond school-based mitigation strategies, we need your help in keeping our school
communities safe. Here are a few ways you can partner with us to do so:

•    Screen and monitor your child’s health every day including doing temperature checks at home
     before they come to school. If you need help with this, please contact us.
•    Keep your child at home if they feel sick or are experiencing COVID symptoms such as fever
     (100.4°F or higher) or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches,
     headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting,
     or diarrhea.
•    Call your health care provider, EOC, or public health office for guidance regarding presenting
     symptoms and testing for COVID-19.

If your child does become sick at school, your building administrator or health aide will be
available to conduct an evaluation. Your child will need to go home if they are experiencing
COVID-19 symptoms and our school has identified a safe and secure isolation room where your
child can wait for you to pick them up.

If your child receives a positive test result, notify your building administrator as soon as you are able.
The sooner we are aware, the sooner we can take action to limit the spread to others.

While this year will be different from what we all hoped for and quite different than other school
years, we are committed to ensuring a quality education for all of our students in a safe
environment. With your help, we can improve the safety and well-being of every student.

Yours in education,

Dr. Debbe Lancaster, Superintendent

Wrangell Public School District                                                                         p.3

Low, Medium, and High-risk environments. Throughout this document, each risk level will be defined
the following ways.

3. S TAFF T RAINING PLAN
WPSD’S staff training plan is critical to ensuring the minimal spread of COVID-19. As much as
possible, professional development will be delivered remotely to individuals or groups of
teachers/staff at a school site. At low or medium risk, teams of 20 or less can gather for PD at the
building sites.

5. PARENT COMMUNICATION PLAN
It is critical that WPSD and schools communicate effectively with parents and guardians. From the
Superintendent to Building Administrators to teachers, all staff are responsible for communicating
important messages timely and in a manner that can be easily understood by the audience.

6 . COMMON AREA MODIFICATIONS
Each site has places throughout the campus that allow for students to congregate. From arriving at
school to passing in the hallway, from playing at recess and eating lunch, each school must have
plans in place to mitigate exposure to COVID-19. See Appendix 1 for special considerations related
to some of these modifications.

7 . ATT ENDANCE MONITORING/ PARENT ENGAGEMENT
Guidelines for attendance monitoring and parent engagement are as follows, regardless of current
risk levels:
           a. Monitor attendance at school daily.
           b. Track percentage of students completing tasks delivered at home.
           c. Track percentage of students submitting tasks demonstrating progress.
           d. Call families who are not engaging and help problem-solve and provide referrals to
               community resources.
           e. No rewards for physical “perfect attendance” at school, as this practice might
               encourage
        sick students to attend school.

8. SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL NEEDS
In addition to ensuring students’ educational needs are met, WPSD has a responsibility to ensure
social-emotional needs are met. From sharing information to helping teach coping skills, social-
emotional development is critical to preparing all students for success.
