Independent study registration opens; COVID-19 vaccines available to community

Wiseburn families and friends,

While we continue to prepare for the start of the new year, we wanted to share two quick updates with you pertaining to the (online) independent study option and free COVID-19 vaccines available to our community.

Independent Study

All students enrolled for the 2021-22 school year will automatically be opted into full-time, in-person instruction, which will resume the same schedule as instruction before the pandemic.

However, based on recent changes in California law, WUSD will also offer an (online) independent study option available to students whose health would be put at risk by in-person instruction, as determined by the parent or guardian. The WUSD Independent Study program is not the same as the 2020-21 WUSD distance learning or hybrid learning programs, and is entirely separate from in-person instruction.

Families interested in this program can learn more and begin the registration process for the WUSD Independent Study Program here. Those families who are not interested in the Independent Study Program do not need to take action at this time.

Back to School Vaccine Clinic

If you have not yet received a COVID-19 vaccine, the Beach Cities Health District will be hosting a final COVID-19 vaccine clinic that is open to the entire WUSD school community, including students (12 years of age and older), staff, and families.

The first dose clinic takes place Thursday, Aug. 12, from 3:30-6:30 p.m., and the second dose clinic takes place Thursday, Sept. 2, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Both clinics will be held at South Bay Adult School, 3401 Inglewood Ave, Redondo Beach, CA 90278. You may register for an appointment, or opt for a walk-up appointment.

To register for a scheduled appointment, visit MyTurn and select "Make an appointment," then fill out the requested information and proceed to the appointment finder screen. Enter "90278" in the zip code field. Click "Schedule appointment" under the "BCHD at South Bay Adult School - Back to School Clinic - Pfizer - Aug 12 & Sept 2," then proceed to pick your appointment dates.

Thank you,
