Good morning WJCC Schools families and staff.

This is school superintendent Olwen Herron with an important message about safety.

This morning, a school volunteer at Matthew Whaley Elementary contacted us to say that she has tested positive for coronavirus.

We are working now to contact the small number of families whose child may have come in contact with this person.

Obviously, this news is upsetting to all of us. Out of an abundance of caution, we will close Matthew Whaley at 10:30 this morning. All other schools are operating on their normal schedule.

We continue to be in contact with the health department and we will make an announcement about future school operations for the division later today.
