Dear WH Students and Parent/Guardian(s),
We will continue to communicate with you throughout the week as the Governor has extended our closure until further notice. At his briefing on Monday, March 23, 2020, Governor Murphy indicated schools “will likely, not an official decision yet, but overwhelmingly likely, remain closed for a long and extended period of time.” I will continue to provide you updates as additional guidance is provided by the State.
As the situation we find ourselves in is consistently evolving, so are our Remote Teaching and Learning practices. This past week, we have listened to the feedback from all of our stakeholders and are working with our teachers to adapt to this new teaching and learning environment in preparation for continuing into the fourth marking period. As a result, you can expect the following modifications for the fourth marking period, beginning Monday, April 6th:
- Our students should expect 3 hours of instruction per week, per class for all of their classes. This includes all instruction, classwork, and homework.
- Assignments will be posted to Google Classroom by our teachers each Monday for the week, and students will have until Friday to complete their assignments at their own pace and submit through Google Classroom.
- Teachers, guidance counselors, and case managers have already begun and will continue to communicate with the students and parents of those students who are struggling to complete their work.
Additionally, the College Board has modified the AP Exam process. The link below will provide you with additional information and guidance for students taking an AP exam. https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/coronavirus-update
We are here to continue to support our parents, students, and school community during this difficult time. If you need any support, do not hesitate to reach out to our counselors, teachers or our building principals. Remember - we are all in this together.
Stay safe, stay healthy and stay home!
Earl C. Clymer, III
Superintendent of Schools
