    Willard Schools' Return to Learn Plan
    An entry plan to learn safely at Willard Schools for our students, staff, and Willard family.

    General Guidelines

    The following Return to Learn Plan (which may also be known as the Continuity of Services Plan (SRCSP)) will be in place for Willard Public Schools during the 2021-2022 school year, or until the COVID-19 pandemic subsides and normal guidelines can be reinstated. These measures will be updated or changed as new information becomes available. These guidelines will be followed to the extent possible given the unique circumstances of each school facility and guidelines might look different across school sites. Decisions will be made in coordination with our state and local health officials. 

    Our Goal

    Our goal is to keep students and staff healthy and to provide a safe learning environment to the best of our ability. This will be a synergistic effort among our students, staff, and families.

    Learning Levels

    The Willard Schools' COVID Response Team will have the authority to make any adjustment to the situational learning levels based on the collaboration with the local health department, DESE, and current positive rates within each of the buildings. The situational level may be adjusted on a departmental basis, grade level, building level, or district level basis. As we mentioned, our goal is to keep students and staff healthy and to provide a safe learning environment to the best of our ability. This will be a synergistic effort among our students, staff, and families.

    Level 1 Learning (current planned status for August 23, 2021 start)

    • School operations will be as normal as possible (face-to-face)
    • Social distancing will be required and enforced when possible
    • Masks will be strongly encouraged for students grades PreK-12
    • Visitors will be strongly encouraged to wear masks in to the building and will be limited and require pre-approval
    • Hand washing/hand sanitizer will be available and frequently encouraged
