Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources for the Wildwood Community

 

Wildwood School is monitoring the evolving news and information on the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19, in the Los Angeles area. This webpage centralizes information and resources for our community. Please check this page regularly for updates.
Updated on: Sept. 29, 2020

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.

Guide to Returning to Campus

A return to campus will require all of us to adhere to a new set of school guidelines that maximize student and faculty safety. These actions, and the steps and procedures we're implementing, are outlined here, in our Guide to Returning to Campus.

Class pages, assignments, and attendance information can be accessed through the Learning Management System (LMS). Class pages are managed by teachers, and content varies based on grade and subject. If you have questions about a specific item on a class page, please discuss with the specific teacher. 


Distributed learning calls for students to be engaged in screen time for longer lengths than any of us would like. While we work with teachers to provide variety in activities during their class period and to be mindful of the technology expectations of their assigned work, we invite you to read this post from Challenge Success and consider how we can provide balance in our lives during this time.
