Return to Learn: Face to Face

Face to Face

Face-to-Face Overview

 

Students report to an assigned Wayland Union School building Monday-Friday. School will not be as typically experienced. If quarantine was necessary, the student would have the opportunity to move to Wildcats Online. If our region returns to Phases 1 - 3 or is mandated through an Executive Order, students would move to Wildcats Online.

Transportation

 

  • Students coming to school on the bus will have their temperature checked when they board the bus. 
  • All students will be required to wear a mask unless they have a documented medical condition preventing them from doing so.

School

 

  • All students will be required to wear a mask, as articulated in the MI Safe Schools: Michigan's 2020-21 Return to School Roadmap, unless they have a documented medical condition preventing them from doing so.
    • Staff members will be required to wear a mask unless they have a documented medical condition preventing them from doing so.
    • All students are required to wear a mask in hallways and common areas.
    • K-5 students will be able to remove their masks once inside their classroom.
    • Students in grades 6-12 will be required to wear a mask at all times unless they have a documented medical condition preventing them from doing so.
  • Students will be instructed in hygiene practices that reduce the spread of COVID-19 (handwashing, coughing/sneezing into their elbows, etc.) and will take breaks to wash their hands every 2-3 hours.
  • We plan for K-8 students to work in cohorts. This means that groups of students will remain in their classroom and teachers will rotate rooms.
  • High School students will follow their typical schedule with increased health and safety protocols.
  • Students will be spaced out in classrooms and desks will be faced in the same direction.
  • K-12 Students will utilize a district-issued iPad and use Google Classroom so they are prepared in the event that our region transitions to Phases 1-3 in the MI Safe Start Plan.

  • Do not have access to reliable, high-speed internet at home
  • Were less successful with emergency distance learning in the spring
  • Want to return to school following all safety procedures identified under the MI Safe School Return to School Roadmap.
