The Wallingford-Swarthmore School District will provide our community with up-to-date information on our response to the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
WSSD is closed indefinitely, as Governor Wolf announced on Monday, March 30th.
Online instruction for students in all schools began on Monday, March 30th.
Our teachers, staff, and administration worked diligently to move their curricula online. We thank them for their hard work and dedication as we all charter this new territory. We also thank our WSSD families for your patience and understanding during this preparation time. Our teachers are very eager to reconnect with their students!
The WSSD Flexible Instruction Plan will continue to be a work in progress over time and as we learn more about the duration of the school closure. Additionally, as teachers and students gain more expertise with online learning, and questions evolve from our WSSD family, we intend to have ongoing conversations around distance education with a mindset of continuous improvement. We are aware that no plan is foolproof, especially as we move our educational approach to a fully online model – the first of its kind for many districts – during the period of school closure.
