Important Information and Dates for Return to Learn January 2021

Good morning West Central Families,

I hope this correspondence finds you well.  As a reminder, January 4, 5, and 6 will be a combination of Remote Learning Planning days and a Teacher Institute day for staff. This means students are not expected to be online or complete work on these days. Remote learning begins on Thursday, January 7.  WCMS and WCHS students will be online with their teachers each day on their regular in-person schedule.  All students will need to be certified via Skyward by 7:30 a.m. each morning beginning Thursday, January 7. If you have any technology issues, please contact Melinda Frakes at frakes-melinda@wc235.k12.il.us.
