In response to the COVID-19 crisis, and upholding its mission to cultivate reflective scholars, bold innovators and compassionate leaders equipped with the skills, ethics and inspiration to transform their world, Wildwood School has shifted to a distributed learning platform. The school will provide services using that platform until such time as it is deemed responsible to return to in-person instruction.
As a reminder, even though we will not be together on campus, it remains imperative that parents, faculty, and staff contact the appropriate Pandemic Coordinator (Melanie Benefiel, Elementary Pandemic Coordinator; Billy DuMone, Middle and Upper Pandemic Coordinator), immediately if you or someone in your household:
- Has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
- Has been tested for COVID-19 and is awaiting results.
- Has traveled (or is traveling) to a Level 2 or Level 3 country (per the CDC) in the last 14 days.
This is a critical part of keeping our community safe.
Continue to follow the guidance of health organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Los Angeles County Department of Health, which include regularly washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoiding unnecessarily touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, covering sneezes and coughs with a tissue or a sleeve, and staying home when sick and until 24 hours have passed after a fever, without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
Health authorities state, during this time, it is imperative that our community implements the practice of “physical distancing," avoiding large group activities and gatherings that have the potential to spread the virus. Student in-person interactions with others should be severely limited, including play dates, sleepovers, mall visits, movies, etc.
