We hope that you had a wonderful winter break with your family and loved ones. It was definitely a different kind of holiday, but hopefully you were able to spend time relaxing and enjoying the time together. We are looking forward to a great rest of the school year. As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback - please feel free to reach out to Dr. Eberly at reberly@wcasd.net.

Dr. Martin Luther King Junior's Day of Service Ideas

On Monday, January 18th, our cyber students do not have school. On this day, we honor and celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King's life. We encourage all families to celebrate a 'day on' of service, rather than a 'day off' from school. Please check out this covid-safe list of Service Ideas.

Request for Assistance to Home School

In an effort to provide additional support for students and parents during remote learning, the district has created a "Request for Academic Assistance" form for each of the WCASD schools. Students, parents and faculty may complete a form on behalf of a student who is struggling with attendance, work completion or social/emotional learning. This form will be reviewed by a member of the Multi-Tiered System of Supports Team (MTSS) to determine the available resources that can be provided. While the form is available for each school we still recommend reaching out directly to your child's cyber teacher to discuss any concerns. Each of the home schools will communicate similar information, as well as the Assistance Form.

WCASD Counseling and Mental Health Professionals Service Guide

We recognize that our students at home may feel isolated. Please know that one of our main goals is to help your children feel connected to their teacher, classroom and Fern Hill! Our district has a Counseling and Mental Health Professionals Service Guide to provide supports and resources if your child is having a difficult time through all of this. This guide provides Counselor and Mental Health Professionals' contact information, services, important forms, and additional resources for parents of students Kindergarten through 12th grade.

WCASD Technology Support at Home

The WCASD created a Technology Support site. It is a great one-stop technology trouble shooting page.
