A Message from Our Principal

Hello, Parents and Students,

The last three years have been immensely challenging for the community of West Wendover. COVID-19 has left a huge impact on communities across the world, and West Wendover has been no different.

COVID-19 has also impacted your child’s ability to attend school. Many communities and schools across the nation switched to virtual learning because many felt that it was unsafe for children to attend school in person.

We here at WWES have always felt that in-person learning in a real classroom is the best way to provide instruction. School is vitally important to children for both academic growth and social/emotional growth. Kids want to be able to see and associate with their friends. Therefore, while many other schools switched to distance learning, this school has provided in-person learning. Of course, it has been necessary to institute many new safety guidelines so that your children remain safe while attending school. Practices like social distancing, wearing masks, etc. have become routine for both students and staff. These practices and our ability to provide in-person learning would not succeed if it was not for your immense support for your child’s educational success.

I would like to take this time to thank the community, parents, and students for working so hard in such difficult circumstances. The staff at WWES appreciates your efforts at ensuring your children continue to receive the very best education possible.
