The start of the new school year will bring changes to elementary and middle school schedules. Like many school divisions across the country, WJCC Schools is facing bus driver shortages that require staff to re-evaluate routes and the timing of bus runs. Adjustments to middle and elementary school hours increase transportation efficiency and create a consistent instructional day for all students in grades 6-8. High school times and early release schedules will not change. See the new schedule here
New Mask Guidance for Schools
Wednesday afternoon, the Virginia Departments of Health and Education highly recommended that all PreK-5 students and staff (regardless of vaccination status) wear face coverings next school year inside buildings and on school buses. At middle and high schools, masks are strongly recommended for any student or staff member who is not vaccinated. In all cases, masks may be removed when people are outdoors provided that social distancing measures are in place.
WJCC Schools just received this new guidance from the Virginia Departments of Health and Education. School division staff will review the detailed recommendations and will share more information with families as soon as possible.
Still Need Your COVID Vaccine?
The school division is hosting two COVID vaccination clinics before school starts next month.
Williamsburg Drug will provide first or second doses of the Pfizer vaccine to any employee or student 12-years or older.
Tuesday, Aug. 3 from 8 – 11:00 a.m. at Berkeley Middle School
Tuesday, Aug. 24 from 8 – 11:00 a.m. at Berkeley Middle School
A pre-registration link will be sent via email before each clinic; however, walk-ins will also be welcome. We highly encourage students wishing to play sports to receive a COVID-19 vaccine due to the close contact with other students during the season.
