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: April 3, 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 remote 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 Michelle Meena (mmeena@wildwood.org), in the head's office, 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 “social 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.

  • Middle and Upper School Virtual Spring Break Field Trips:
    Wildwood is facilitating virtual Spring Break field trips for students in each of their classes. We may be homebound, but that doesn't mean we cannot visit other cities, states, countries, and even outer space! In each course, students have been assigned one virtual field trip that relates to the content they will study post-spring break. Students will go on their field trips independently via the virtual field trip website which goes live on Monday, March 30 at 9 a.m. This website will only be accessible to students through their Wildwood email account. They will then attend one class session in each of their classes to discuss the experiences. Students must complete the field trip before each assigned class meeting. Class meetings will take place on March 31, April 2, 6, 8 and 10, and will follow the schedule provided here.

    Please make sure to support students in calendaring those specific days and times so they don't miss out. Each experience should take 30-60 minutes to complete. This is meant to keep our community engaged with each other and learning during the next two weeks. We encourage you to take these trips with your children if you have the time or interest.

Class pages, assignments, and attendance information can be accessed through the Learning Management System (onCampus). 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. 

Remote 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.
