Be a Fan of Game Day Safety

Fall does not officially start until Sept. 22, but fall sports are already in full swing in WJCC Schools. Show your game day support for your favorite team by following all COVID prevention methods listed below. 

Mask Up  

Masks are required for all indoor events that take place on WJCC Schools property. They are not required for outdoor events. However, if you feel more comfortable wearing a mask at outdoor events, please feel free to do so.   

Back Up 

Maintain six feet of physical distance to the greatest extent possible. This extra room not only helps prevent the transmission of COVID but allows spectators to bring bigger signs to support their team. 

Support from Home

If you or anyone you have been in close contact with is sick, stay home. The best way to support your team and community is to keep them healthy.

Is it a cold or something more?

We love to have our students back in school full-time, but not if they are not feeling well. Parents/guardians should evaluate students’ health daily for signs of COVID. An easy way to do this is to use WJCC Symptom Checker (English / Spanish). If a student is experiencing any of the listed symptoms, they must stay home until they feel well and/or cleared by a doctor to return. 

Besides monitoring students’ health, parents/guardians should check in with their close contacts. If a close contact is experiencing COVID symptoms or has tested positive, the student should remain home and be seen by a medical provider.

On-time Graduation Rate increases despite COVID

Despite the last years’ many obstacles, students were able to succeed academically and graduate on time in greater numbers than the year before. The division’s Class of 2021 on-time graduation rate year was 94.1% which is a 2% increase from the previous year.
