During times like this and the unprecedented challenges it brings, it is our ability to remain flexible, compassionate and focused on the best interests of our kids and families that will sustain us. As each day unfolds, new developments, new information, and new requirements challenge us as everyone responds to the COVID-19. To date, we have good systems in place for identifying and responding to staff and resident illness and minimizing large group or unnecessary interactions. With the exception of the Special Education program, all programs have continued operations and the school is currently implementing plans for distance learning to address some of the critical educational needs of our students.
We do not know where this is all going or what specific challenges lie ahead, but we can control how we respond to these challenges. All members of the WCS Agency leadership team are following this very closely and advising actions in the best interests of the staff and kids that we serve.
For almost 100 years, our community, has been our focus. In light of concerns about the Coronavirus, we are mindful about everyone’s health and well being. While we love seeing you in person, we are focused on your safety during this unprecedented time in our world. We have cancelled our much anticipated Kabaret for Kids in April as well as all group trainings and meetings that we would normally host. We continue to operate our programs and services for families and will support them as best we can during this time.
