As Windham Academy opens for the 2021-2022 school year, masks will be OPTIONAL for staff and students. Staff and students may continue to wear a mask if they choose to do so. If our state and federal officials (NH DHHS, NH DOE, and the CDC) mandate that this safety feature is necessary, the WA School Board will update you with any/all changes.
~ Remote learning will not be offered "in place of" in-person learning at WA at this time.
~Parents are asked to assess their children before leaving home and to contact
WA if any COVID-like symptom has developed. Please continue to be vigilant in keeping students home who are "not feeling well". Communication with Nurse Barth will be "key" here.
~Social Emotional: Teachers will have one-on-one meetings with families before school opens to discuss the current mindset of the child. WA will continue to provide the social and emotional services to staff/students who may need support. These services may include but are not limited to: meeting students in-person, Classroom lessons, individual and group counseling, and supporting our students' social and emotional needs.
~We have a large, new building. There is ample room for separation during academic time. Staff and students will no longer be required to social distance. However, students will be invited to have a mask with them during the school day. If an activity calls for students to be in close proximity, "mask time" will be offered, but not required.
~We will continue to focus on hand washing and sanitizing throughout the day.
~ WA has a modern HVAC system. Filters will be changed quarterly.
~ WA water fountains will not be in use. Students/Staff are invited to bring water bottles from home.
~ Windham Bus Students must follow guidelines put forth by (STA and Durham Transportation Services) COVID-19 guidelines.
~ Mr. Greg and the evening custodians will continue to use Eco-Sprays and Cleansers throughout the building. Staff and students will be wiping down surfaces and classroom items daily.
