West Noble Schools Reopening Plan for the 2020-2021 school year. Please visit the full plan to read the specific plans for each building.
The key elemental changes for this year will be:
Hours of Operation: Students in grades K-15 will attend school from 7:50 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. each day. Students in grades 6-12 will attend school from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day. This allows for dual bus routing and to reduce the number of students on each bus daily. Buses will be cleaned between routes.
School Week: Students in grades K-12 will attend school Monday through Thursday of each week with Friday serving as an E-Learning day. Fridays will be utilized for the cleaning of all WNSC facilities and the time without students present will aid in giving the virus time to die if it is somewhere on a surface, whether it be on a bus or on a surface in a building. Fridays also serve as a time for teachers to supervise E-Learning and plan both online and in-person lessons for the following week. Staff will be in the buildings on Fridays collaborating and building curriculum. Food service will continue on each Friday via a summer feeding model.
Cleaning: In an attempt to assist in the cleaning and maintenance of each building, an additional custodian will be working during school hours with the primary focus on cleaning and sanitizing. Cleaning supplies will be available in each classroom. Students and staff will do their part by attempting to have the room ready for deep cleaning by the custodial staff at the close of each school day.
Delivery of Service: WNSC recognizes and understands the varying degrees of perspectives when it comes to the health, safety, and well-being of the students and families of this community. Therefore, two educational delivery options for students have been made available for the 20-21 school year. First, families may choose the traditional school model by attending school each day in person. The second option is for students to do school virtually through the newly created WN Virtual Academy which is an E-Learning option. Families will be asked to choose the option that best fits their needs during registration the first week of August.
Specific building level plans for West Noble Primary, West Noble Elementary School, West Noble Middle School, and West Noble High School are included in the full plan.
The first day of school for students will be August 14.
