Wythe County Broadband Internet Survey

The Board of Supervisors recently approved the funding for a Broadband survey/study for Wythe County. This will allow Wythe County Public Schools to gain valuable data to present to state and federal funding sources to hopefully provide high speed, reliable internet to the many under served households in Wythe County.

WCPS Inclement Weather Information

As winter weather approaches, WCPS will continue to monitor safety conditions for our students and staff. At times, we will have traditional “snow days”. We feel it is important not to take the magic of a “snow day”
away so our children have something time-honored to remain in their lives. But there maybe times, especially  when we can predict imminent weather coming, where we will have to utilize digital learning. This option may be used
when we have missed an excessive amount of days and in-person
learning is not feasible due to inclement weather.

Attendance Guidelines

The new requirements for attendance with in-person and distance learning for middle and high school began this week.

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
Students will be required to attend classes in-person and/or virtually Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

On Wednesdays, live meetings will also be offered to students.
Teachers will be available to interact with students virtually during their regularly scheduled class periods on Wednesdays. 

Students will complete assignments for each class on Wednesdays as assigned by the teachers.

To be counted present, the student should complete their Wednesday assignments in each class. 

If students completed their work early, they are not absent.

There may be some instances when either an in-person student and/or a distance learning student may be required to participate in live meets or even in-person on a Wednesday.

Some examples may include, but not limited to, small group instruction, individual instruction, remediation or enrichment opportunities, and assessments.

Teachers will provide advanced notice of these occasions.

If a student is unable to participate during Wednesdays or a particular class on Monday through Friday, the parent/guardian should notify the school.
