WSCA School Closure Announcement

Out of an abundance of caution, West Shore Christian Academy is following other local school districts’ decision to close beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27, 2020. We will plan to resume school on Monday, March 30, 2020. It is important to note that, at this time, WSCA does not have any confirmed cases of COVID-19.

During this closure, we will be implementing a distant learning plan in an attempt to redeem instructional time so we can continue to fulfill state instructional hour requirements. As we communicated last night, next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (March 16-19) will be vacation days for the students as faculty and staff report for in-service to begin implementing our distant learning plan. More information will be sent via email early next week to explain student, teacher, and parent expectations for schoolwork during the closure.
