- Upcoming Events
Dear WCCUSD Families,
I just want to thank you for continuing to work with us through the school closures due to the coronavirus crisis that is gripping the world. Today, six Bay Area counties announced that schools would remain closed through May 1 in order to help reduce the spread and transmission of COVID-19. More on the joint county announcement can be found in this release from Contra Costa County Office of Education.
This news has been expected and we have been working under the assumption that an extended closure would be likely and would need a strategy to support the long-term needs of the students and families we serve. At this time, we plan to implement a more permanent remote learning program by April 13 that will be mandatory for all district students.
While the details are still being worked out, we do know that it will be led by District teachers and staff and meet the academic needs of students. While we are excited for the expanded distance learning, we still encourage students to remain engaged in the opportunities and resources that have already been provided.
Tentatively, the timeline is as follows:
Week of March 23: Expectations for students, teachers, and administrators will be outlined.
Week of March 30: Teachers and administrators will be trained and preparing for a more robust distance learning curriculum.
Week of April 6: Spring Break. This is a non-instructional week.
Beginning Monday, April 13: Mandatory distance learning begins for all grades at all schools.
For all the District Closure news, please check the District’s web page at www.wccusd.net/districtclosure. Lastly, if you are not receiving updates for the District, make sure we have your correct contact information by completing this Google Form.
Thank you for continuing to work with us through this crisis.

- About Site Council
The School Site Council (SSC) is composed of the school principal and 8-10 parents, teachers and other staff selected by their peers, representing all segments of the school community for the common goal of supporting student success. The SSC does this by developing and monitoring the implementation of the school’s plan known as the Single Plan for Student Achievement. The SSC also determines how certain funds received by the school for this purpose should be spent.
The SSC members are the principal; teacher representatives; other staff representatives; parents/other community representatives, and student representatives at the secondary level with each group selected by their peers.
