Coronavirus (COVID-19)

     As you know, by order of the Governor, all schools including WSESD buildings and programs will be closed through April 13, 2020. We fully support the Governor's decision and applaud her concern for students, staff and community health and safety. 

     Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we continue to work through the details and next steps that are associated with this unprecedented statewide school closure.  The safety of our students and our staff members continues to be our top priority.  To that end, we are actively seeking guidance and collaborating with county emergency managers, state and community health officials, the centers for disease control, local school districts, the department of education and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and numerous educational associations. 

     During the closure, we will be following guidance from the MDHHS and the CDC for cleaning and sanitizing.  This includes additional program-specific steps.  As a result, access to the building will be restricted. Additional information and guidance will be provided with this ever-evolving situation. The health and safety of students and staff continues to be our highest priority.

UPDATE: Due to the Governor's "Stay Home-Stay Safe" order, all WSESD programs, services, and facilities are closed through April 13, 2020.
