I hope this update finds each of you healthy. Let me start by expressing how much we miss our students and families. Because we can’t be together in person, we have put in place a few ways for us to engage with each other while school remains closed. We will get through this and be learning and having fun together in person soon. Until then, check out the ways to stay connected below, as well as information regarding food distribution and other resources.
Food Distribution Drive Thru
WWCSD is providing breakfast and lunch for all of our students up to 18 years of age. This pick-up will also include our adult transition students up to age 26. Yesterday food was distributed to students. Below is the information on the upcoming date/location for drive thru pick-up.
You will enter the driveway on the west end of the Board of Education office on
Marquette. The main entrance at John Glenn High School will be closed. The line will wrap around behind the William D. Ford Career-Technical Center and up to the front entrance of John Glenn High School. Volunteers will bring the food to the vehicle. Meals distributed will follow USDA reimbursable meal guidelines.
Who: WWCSD students

Accessing Report Cards from Home
When you log in to parent connect, on the left side of the page you will see a tab labeled “Student Documents – Report Cards.” You can view grades here. These will be sent home as well with your student when we return to school.
Learning at Home
We understand how challenging it may be to help your child continue learning at home. Below is a great resource that offers suggestions for top websites in all content areas that you can utilize.
In addition, please encourage your child to read daily! Ask him or her to tell you about what they read or have them write about it! This is an easy way to keep your child engaged in learning at home.
