From the Principal's Desk
It is hard to believe that October is already here! At this point in time, Wellwood students, parents, and teachers have been working together for 5 weeks. Please know that Wellwood's staff is here to support you and your child in the remote learning environment.
As shared in a previous email to our school community, attendance is necessary in order for your child to continue growing and learning. Please do not hesitate to reach out to one of us if you need additional help with logging in to Schoology, Google Meet, or any other BCPS digital tools. We are here to help! Additionally, we have many resources to for parents on our website. Please be sure to go to https://wellwoodes.bcps.org/ for information to support you and your child during remote instruction.
Stay well and take care!
