In-Person Health Reminders

posted Mar 25, 2021, 3:16 PM by Kira Alexander

There was an outdial sent to all families as a reminder of the health protocols for returning to in-person learning. Thank you for your attention and cooperation.
If your child exhibits any of the following symptoms: fever, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea or any other symptoms of illness, whether or not you believe it's related to COVID-19, you will need to keep them home for at least 24 hours and until symptoms are no longer happening.
Please know that in light of Governor Ducey's executive order relaxing mask restrictions for some places, his order for masks at all schools is still in effect. 

AZDHS Emergency Measure 2020-04 is still in effect, requiring masks in all K12 schools. Masking is one of the top mitigation strategies for safe in-person learning as recommended by the CDC.

Masks must be worn on school campuses, on school buses and during school-associated activities by all students, faculty, staff, contractors, and visitors.

Acknowledgement Form and ParentVUE Activation

posted Mar 11, 2021, 3:19 PM by Kira Alexander

Before returning students to in-person instruction, parents will need to complete a Washington Elementary School District COVID-19 Parent Acknowledgement and Disclosure Form. The form discusses taking your child’s temperature before school, staying home if they are sick, limited access to campus and contacting your school if your child comes into contact with someone who tests positive. It also discusses how the school will monitor symptoms and who to contact. Families will need to acknowledge reading and agreeing to comply with the safety precautions. If you completed this form in the fall, you do not need to complete it again.  If you do not have an activation code, please contact the office.

Gifted Testing

posted Feb 5, 2021, 10:29 AM by Kira Alexander   [ updated Feb 5, 2021, 10:32 AM ]

Gifted Testing is taking place over the next few months. If you feel you would like your child to be evaluated for gifted services, please email your child's teacher or have a conversation with them at parent/teacher conferences to determine if your child would be a good candidate for testing.  Please keep in mind, if we are still in the virtual mode, students will need to come to school for testing.  Online testing is not an option.  Additionally, due to the current circumstances, the number of students tested on any given day will be limited to accommodate for social distancing. Once we have numbers, we will be able to create a schedule and notify parents of testing dates and times.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to email our Teacher of Gifted, Jordan.Blair@wesdschools.org.  You can also find more information on our current newsletter.
