Practically overnight, everything changed.
On Thursday, March 12, the WCS leadership team made the hard decision to postpone our Spring Gala (scheduled for the next evening) due to Governor Carney's declaration of a State of Emergency, which included guidance to avoid crowds of 100 or more people.
Within 24 hours, we made the announcement to parents that due to COVID-19, we would need to pivot to all distance-based teaching and learning. A lot can happen in 24 hours!
Teachers jumped on an aggressive learning curve to transition to video-based instruction, with only two weeks to do so. Students were suddenly home with all their school supplies and their families, and away from the their friends. WCS leadership meetings moved to video, and sports seasons came to a screeching halt.
