Coronavirus (COVID-19) INFORMATION
The Westminster Public Schools Board of Education has approved a resolution giving families two options for educating their children during the COVID-19 Pandemic: in-person, five days a week learning or virtual learning through the Westminster K-12 Virtual Academy.
The decision to provide an in-person learning opportunity was reached after extensive conversations with health experts and educators with a focus on safety for students and staff. Now that schools are open for in-person learning, stringent safety measures are in place to keep buildings as safe as possible. Details can be found at mywps.org/reopening.
In addition to school-specific plans created by principals, we will all be practicing the 3 W’s of WPS. Wear A Mask. Wash Your Hands. Watch Your Distance.
School start and end times have been adjusted to meet the challenges presented by COVID-19 guidance and recommendations issued by various health and governmental agencies.
Transportation is provided at the elementary and middle school levels, but because of limited space and the need to enforce social distancing practices, families are encouraged to bring their children to and from school on their own.
Transportation is not available for Westminster High School students, but we are pleased to tell you that arrangements have been made with the RTD. More information is available here.
If changing conditions require an individual classroom, school, or the entire district to move to remote learning, WPS is prepared to deliver instruction to all students.
