Walla Walla Schools Prepare For In-School Learning
Good news for the Walla Walla School District as they are preparing for in-school learning for its youngest group of students and special student groups.
The Walla Walla School District released a press release announcing plans to resume some in-school learning starting Monday, January 25th.
The school board instructed Superintendent Smith and staff to implement safety, coordination, and communication measures necessary to transition kindergarten through 5th-grade students to in-person AM/PM hybrid learning.
Based on the board-reviewed framework, students in preschool and transitional kindergarten programs at the Walla Walla Center for Children & Families may begin in-person hybrid learning as soon as January 19.
Here is the rest of the information from the press release concerning moving more into in-school learning:
Under the state-aligned plan, students in self-contained Special Education programs, SEATech students, and a limited number of high school students in Career and Technical Education and laboratory science programs will also be permitted to attend in-person lab sessions later this month.
A select number of students in grades 6-12 who are struggling academically will also be served on campus for in-person distance learning with additional staff support.
Consistent with new state guidance, the district will closely monitor local COVID cases as it eyes returning middle and high school students to in-person learning once case counts reach state-recommended levels.
The district is also awaiting new guidance expected this week from the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association regarding athletic practices and activities.
The good news is that the Walla Walla School District is moving closer and closer to getting kids back into school, you can read more about the press release and all things Walla Walla Schoo District related here
