Dear Wilburton Families and Parents,

 

Thank you families and parents for supporting our school community in having important conversations about the personal decision around masking. These conversations at home coupled with discussions and lessons at school facilitated by teachers have contributed to a very smooth transition from our required indoor masking policy to the change this week of making masking optional at school. Students have adjusted to the new shift with lots of kindness, understanding and inclusiveness. 

 

In partnership,

 

Chhoun Mey, Principal
