District schools will return to in-person classes in August

Parents of students in the Wayne-Westland Community Schools received some welcome news from Superintendent of Schools John Dignan recently.

In a letter to parents, Dignan said that beginning with the fall semester of the 2021-2022 school year, the district will have in-person classes five days a week. The fall semester will begin in August this year and Dignan said there will be no hybrid programming for the upcoming scholastic year.

He said that families interested in a virtual learning option for students could contact the Wayne-Westland Virtual Academy where enrollment applications are currently being accepted.

“We are returning to full in-person learning at all campuses K-12), five days per week for the 2021-2022 school year barring any unforeseeable event,” Dignan said in his letter.” This is a full load for our students and families who choose to join us in in-persons learning. We will continue to practice COVID-19 safety protocols as the district moves into the new school year through the guidance of the Wayne County Health Department and other entities,” he said.

All preschool programs, including young fives programming will also be open for full operations in the fall, according to Dignan. He said that more details on fall plans will become available throughout the coming weeks and months.
