Distance Learning - Return to In-Person Learning

All students will remain on the
Distance Learning Schedule until January 22nd.

The Wythe County School Board voted to return to
in-person instruction, 5 days a week,
with a 2:00 pm dismissal every day beginning
Monday, January 25.

If your child is planning to return to in-person learning at FCHS on Monday, January 25th please contact the FCHS Guidance Office to change their status from distant learning to in-person learning. 
Any changes need to be reported to FCHS by Wednesday, January 20th.   

Families who choose to stay 100% Virtual will still have this option. All safety mitigation strategies for in-person learning will remain in effect.

WCPS will follow the Governor’s Executive Order 72 which maintains the requirement that individuals must wear masks while indoors at public and private school settings unless they qualify for a health or safety exemption. Masks will also be worn outdoors when 6ft. distancing cannot be maintained. WCPS will continue to follow any new guidance or executive orders issued and update our plans accordingly.

Wythe County Public Schools would like to thank ALL of our students, staff, and the school community for their cooperation and support! Together, we can continue to provide everyone with a safe, healthy, positive, and productive learning environment.

Parents and students, please complete this form to reserve meals while we are in 100% distant learning. Please only complete once per week. Must be completed by Thursday at 3:00 pm the week before.

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 begin October 27, 2020.

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. 

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