Wyoming to start school with two weeks remote, shift to in-person option

All students started the school year with two weeks of online learning Tuesday, Aug. 25, with plans to move into in-person instruction beginning Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Superintendent Craig Hoekstra said the district is expecting about 55 percent of students to return in person and the remainder to stay remote on WPS Virtual. Fewer students in the building will allow for social distancing, smaller classroom sizes and other safety measures. 

Hoekstra noted the two-week remote start is not a trial period. Parents already opted for in-person or remote learning, committing to in-person or remote for a minimum of one semester for seventh through 12th graders or one school quarter for kindergarten through sixth graders.

The remote option will be led by Wyoming teachers through Google Classroom and Synergy. It will include live virtual instruction, recorded lessons and consistent schedules.
