Frequently Asked Questions
2020-2021 Frequently Asked Questions
Question 1: Why are we not doing a similar plan as Dubuque Community Schools with their hybrid plan addressing social distancing?
To follow proper social distancing guidance of 6 feet, we would have to split our students up into groups of 3 or 4, depending on the different classroom sizes. This would mean students would rotate and only attend in-person schooling on a 1 out of every 3 or 1 out of every 4 days. 
Question 2: What is the plan for positive cases?
We continue to wait for guidance from our counties regarding student attendance (Dubuque, Jones, and Jackson). In lieu of having their direct guidance, we will follow the guidelines from the Linn County Public Health.  
Question 3: What will these Fridays look like for my child?
If your child is attending school from Monday-Thursday, your child will not attend school on Friday, however, teachers will assign some academic content to continue at home.
Question 4: What is the process to make an official decision on if my child(ren) will be attending in-person, virtually, or choosing to unenroll from WDCSD to homeschool or attend another school?
For families planning on choosing the virtual option for the fall, the Official Virtual Learning Registration is on our district website. If you select this option, your child(ren) will be placed in our distance learning system for the entire first trimester which runs from August 13th through November 19th.  After completing both this virtual learning registration form, as well as the yearly District registration process, an administrator or district employee will be in contact with you on the next steps in this virtual option.  Please note: The Official Virtual Learning Registration form is due by Friday, July 31st.
