School Reopening Health and Safety Plan



On July 27, 2020, the Board of Education approved the Wayne Highlands School District Health and Safety Plan. The plan outlines our instructional and non-instructional school reopening activities for the 2020-2021 school year. As we are all well aware, the COVID-19 Pandemic has presented significant challenges to our entire community, and beyond. As a District, we are committed to the health and safety of all of our students, their families, as well as our faculty and staff. The Wayne Highlands’ Plan has been developed fully cognizant that families may view the reopening of school differently. As a result, to begin the school year, we are providing three instructional options within the Wayne Highlands School District. After reviewing the WHSD Health and Safety Plan at and having attended building level Question & Answer Zoom Meetings (see schedule and login information below), we are hopeful that our parents will be able to make informed decisions regarding their child’s return to school. Listed below is a summary of the current instructional options to begin the 2020-2021 school year. Should Governor Wolf declare Wayne County a different color designation (yellow or red), options will be presented accordingly. As I have emphasized from the beginning, thank you for your continued cooperation, understanding and trust as we navigate through this very difficult and complicated time. We are ALL in this together.
