Welcome to in-person learning 2020!
09/09/2020

Dear WEJ Families  


Welcome to in-person learning 2020! 


WEJ staff are all busy completing the reorganization of our school and preparing our classrooms for your children. We are really looking forward to welcoming them next week.


This fall, WEJ had a student population of 668 students. At this time, we have approximately 325 students (49%) who are returning to in-person learning and approximately 343 students (51%) who have chosen remote learning. This has dramatically changed our planning for this upcoming year and the physical set-up of our school.


Although our class sizes will be similar to last year, we are going to be able to space out our classrooms throughout the school, using a large number of entries and exits resulting in not as many students in our halls. We will do everything we can to ensure your child is safe while in our care.


In order to maintain and adhere to the OPH and Board protocols, in-person instruction is going to look and feel much different compared to past experiences...
