Hello Finley Families,

To plan for when WSD is able to return to an in-person instructional format, we need parents/guardians to select their preferred model of instruction through the WSD Return to School Form which is due by Thursday, July 30. For more information, please refer to your email account (Aeries) for a letter from Beverlee Mathenia, Senior Executive Director, Educational Services.

Please complete one form per child in your family and include your child’s student ID number. The ID number can be found in the Aeries parent portal on the WSD website, or you may call (714) 894-7311 for assistance.

The instructional models include:
• A 100% virtual learning model with rigorous instruction and daily live interactions from WSD credentialed teachers
• A daily in-person instruction or the traditional school model, with enhanced health and safety measures
• A hybrid model (a combination of learning at home and school)
• A self-paced, independent study program at home*
