As we gear up to welcome back over 17,000 students for the 2021-2022 school year next Wednesday, August 4, 2021, I would like to express my optimism that this year is going to be a time for our students to reconnect with each other, their teachers and our staff members. Being a lifelong educator myself, I know the importance of the positive relationships between our students and educators. Everyone is anxious and eager to see our students, faculty and staff come back to school energized and ready to work together to achieve greatness!
For all of us in education, this is an exciting time of the year and I find it inspiring to see our staff engage in countless professional development opportunities throughout the summer as we prepare together to ensure student safety, achievement and opportunities! These collaborative efforts of our staff give me tremendous confidence in our ability to duplicate the success we experienced last school year.
I recognize many of you are following the almost daily updates to the CDC guidelines related to COVID-19 and its variants. As the school year begins, please know that WCPS is closely monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 virus and its variants and we will continue to consult with local health care experts as we monitor community conditions. In the event our COVID-19 guidelines are amended by the Kentucky Department of Health, CDC, or Governor’s office, WCPS is committed to notifying our entire school community in a timely manner.

We are looking forward to an incredible year and we can’t wait to celebrate the many accomplishments of our students throughout the year! As always, please contact our school staff at any time your child may need assistance to be successful in our schools.
