School is (Still) Open for In-Person Instruction
January 25, 2021
We consider ourselves thankful and grateful that our school has been and continues to be open for in-person instruction. We believe that your diligence along with the efforts of our teachers and staff have had much to do with our success in eliminating the spread of COVID-19 on the school campus.
Will you also join us in praying for our friends and family members who have suffered because of this virus? For those who have been kept apart from their loved ones and for those who have lost loved ones? We continue to ask God for peace that surpasses understanding during this difficult time.
The California Department of Public Health issued an updated Guidance and Framework document for schools. The good news is WCCA already has many protocols in place to fulfill most of the new guidelines. There is one significant update that will affect our primary (K-2) grades. Follow this link to view WCCA's strategic plan for in person instruction.
Beginning today, all K-8 students will be required to wear face coverings on campus except when eating, drinking, or napping. (Previously, this requirement was 3rd-8th grade only.) Our primary teachers will be providing a clear face shield option for their students. If your child is enrolled in one of our primary grades, he/she will have the option of wearing their own face covering from home or the face shield provided from their teacher.
Thank you for helping us keep the doors of WCCA open for in-person instruction. We appreciate your care and concern for the WCCA family.

Even though our county has been moved back into the purple "widespread" tier, our school will be allowed to stay open. It is both saddening and frustrating to see that COVID-19 numbers are going up both in the county and in our state. In our school community, we continue to be diligent regarding our COVID-19 protocols, and we are thankful for our students and families who are also being diligent during this cold/flu/COVID-19 season. We appreciate the abundance of caution that everyone is taking with hand washing, social distancing, and masking, as well as staying home when exhibiting any signs of cold or flu. Stay healthy and well!

Dear WCCA Families,
Today was our official first day of in-person instruction for the 2020-2021 school year. A special thank you to our students who were new to campus today and came prepared to follow our COVID protocols.
Yesterday, as our county (Contra Costa) maintained red "substantial" tier status for two consecutive weeks, it was announced that schools in our county would be allowed to reopen. Our reopening status does come with some modifications to our current COVID-19 protocols. Please take note of the following changes:
Students K-2nd: Masks will be required during transitional times (i.e. pick up/drop off).
Students 3rd-8th: Masks will be required at all times, except when eating/drinking.
Please make sure to send your child with a clearly labeled mask every day.
Please make sure to send your child with a clearly labeled reusable water bottle every day.
School begins at 8:30am. Students arriving after 8:30am will be marked tardy. If you are dropping your student off late OR picking them up early, please call the office (925-935-1587) and a staff member will come escort them to/from your car.
Barcode pickup cards are now REQUIRED when signing your student IN or OUT of Extended Care. If you need a new card, please contact the school office.
The School Office will be open for appointments only. Please call or email the office to schedule an appointment.
Thank you for your flexibility and cooperation.
