Wayland Academy Head of School Jason Warnick was interviewed by the Beaver Dam Daily Citizen about the Academy's Big Red Return plan.
Implementing back to school plans during the coronavirus pandemic has proved challenging for local school boards and administrators. Figuring student dormitories into the equation doesn’t make it easier.
Wayland Academy begins welcoming its students back to campus this weekend. In-person classes haven’t taken place since March, but that changes Monday when the fall semester gets underway.
Jason Warnick, Wayland’s new head of school, said starting a new position under the current health conditions is not what he anticipated.
“It’s unchartered territory but we’re all in this together,” he said. “I’ve appreciated everyone’s warm welcome and guidance.”
Dubbed “The Big Red Return,” the reopening plan focuses on the safety of students, faculty, staff and the community at large.
