    REOPENING OF SCHOOL FOR IN-PERSON LEARNING 
    Students return to school for in-person learning has gone well.   There was noticeable excitement among students when their virtual teachers came to life and they were able to reconnect with old friends and meet new friends.  Our staff has also enjoyed having students back on campus engaging in learning.  Although in-person teaching and learning is optimum for most students, more than 200 parents decided that an online option best meets the needs of their children and around 50 have remained in the remote learning platform.  It is our intent to continue to offer quality learning options.

    COVID-19 UPDATE
    Students are doing extremely well adjusting to the new guidelines at school.  We are so pleased with their capacity in the areas of wearing a mask, washing hands and following social distancing reminders. Please see your child's school reopening plan for any updated information on pandemic guidelines.

    FILLING THE EDUCATIONAL GAPS
    All Wickenburg teachers are providing interventions to students to fill learning gaps.  These interventions can be provided at the whole class, small group or individual level.  Many grade-levels are using the IXL computer-based program to meet individual student needs.  This program is designed to administer a diagnostic assessment and then provide lessons at the students individual level.  Students will need to master each level of the content in order to move forward.
