Dear School Community,
Due to current and projected COVID-19 rates remaining in the substantial range throughout
the Commonwealth, WPSBC will continue remote instruction following the holiday break,
with a plan to reopen campus on January 25, 2021.
We continue to rely on public health data, the advice of medical experts and our school’s
comprehensive Health and Safety plan to determine when it is safe to return to on-campus
We will hold a Parent Q&A during the week of January 1, 2021, featuring Dr. Flores-Noel. A
Zoom invitation will follow via Remind.
It is our hope that COVID-19 rates trend back into the Moderate Level of community
spread by mid-January, at which time we will communicate a detailed plan for return. In the
meantime, for the latest COVID-19 tracking data in Pennsylvania, please visit: COVID-19 Early
Warning Monitoring System Dashboard .
As we prepare for the holiday season, please consider the CDC guidance on holiday
celebrations. We encourage you to remain diligent in mask-wearing, social distancing and
handwashing particularly throughout the holiday season. While the holidays will surely be
different this year, we encourage you to strengthen your efforts to help mitigate the spread
I wish you a happy, healthy holiday season as we look forward to better days in the new
Dr. Heidi Ondek
Executive Director and Superintendent
