• Welcome to Distance Learning

    Distance Learning opportunities begin this week. Teachers and staff have been working hard to get ready to help you through the Distance Learning activities while schools are closed. In addition to the WCSD Distance Learning Page, we have created a distance learning page for Anderson so you know that we are hear to help and support you and your family through learning from home.


    This week our goal is to check in with all of our students and get them started on the work that has been provided online and in packets at various pick-up locations. If you need a learning packet, click here for Elementary Content (K-5) and Middle School Content (6). The delivery schedule for packets has been extended through this week. The closest pick-up locations are Reno HS and Wooster HS from 10:00am-2:00pm today and tomorrow.. Click here for packet delivery information and Updates.

    You may have noticed changed that we have implemented to establish a safe campus during school hours. Many of these changes were recommendations based on safety audits and observations that we have conducted.

    • Before School - 8:45-8:57am:
      • Gates will open at 8:45am. Supervision begins at that time. We ask that students and families plan to arrive at that time or later as there will be no access to the campus before 8:45. Check-in at the office for all school-related business between 8:00am and 8:45am.
      • We ask all adults to leave the campus at the 8:57 bell. Gates are locked and campus is secured at 9:00am
      • All adults are asked to vacate the grounds through the gates. Doors will be locked limiting passage through the building in the morning.
      • Students are late as of 9:00am and need to check in at the office.
    • Early Release of Students During the School Day:
      • We struggle with chronic absenteeism. Leaving early does count against your student’s attendance record and impacts your child’s learning. Please make every effort to make appointments after the school day or during breaks.
      • We can only release students when the parent/guardian is checking out the child. We do not pull students from class in advance of parent/guardian arrival. Please plan time to check out and transition your child from the classroom in your schedule to keep you on time.
      • Due to the time that it takes to communicate with classrooms and transition your child out of class early, we will not pull students from the learning environment if the request is made within the last fifteen minutes of the school day.
    • After School – 3:00pm or 2:15pm on Wednesdays:
      • Keeping with our single-point-of-entry model, gates will remain closed until the end of the school day – 3:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 2:15 on Wednesday.
      • Once the bell rings, gates will open to allow adults on campus. Older siblings will be asked to wait outside the gates for younger children to exit school grounds.

    These changes are in response to parent concerns about issues related to the safety of our campus and our students. Thank you for your patience with these changes.
