Wiseburn's Reopening Plan

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the reopening of Wiseburn USD for the 2020-21 academic year is a matter of public health. As such, the district is required to follow health orders from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH), as well as state and federal requirements and statutes.

Wiseburn is currently operating in a Distance Learning Instruction Model for general education. Starting early March, WUSD will also reopen schools with a hybrid model of instruction in a phased approach, which will allow for a safe and controlled return for our TK-5 students and staff.

In late February, students and their parents/caretakers were given the option to enroll in either our Hybrid Learning Program (in-person and at-home) or a full distance Remote Learning Program (100% at-home) for students.

TK-2 students who opt for the Hybrid Learning Program will return to campus beginning March 8. Students in grades 3-5 who opt for the Hybrid Learning Program will return to campus beginning March 15.

Efforts will be made to maintain current teacher/class assignments and minimize the shuffling of classes and schedules. Unfortunately, due to staffing and student participation in either learning program, families will not have the option of choosing a specific teacher for their student, although we will do our best to promote continuity of classes. Regardless of which program is chosen, students may be placed with a new teacher for the remainder of the school year.

WUSD TK-5 Learning Program Enrollment Options

Option 1:  Elementary Hybrid Learning Program (in-person and at-home) TK-5

A combination of in-person (face to face) attendance on-campus and designated distance learning times. Each school will notify parents/guardians of the class placement and site specific details related to returning to in-person instruction.

This option will have students~

  • attend school on-campus four half days per week in a physically distanced environment.
  • participate in four half days of asynchronous (independent assigned learning time) lessons at home.
  • participate in one day of asynchronous (independent assigned learning time) lessons (Wednesdays).
  • assigned to an AM (group A) or PM (group B) stable group for on-campus instruction.
  • A/B group scheduling helps ensure that social distancing within the stable groups can be maintained and mitigate viral transmission.
  • follow Hybrid Learning Program bell schedule (see below).

Please note: Families should be prepared to pivot to full remote/distance learning if health and safety require this at any point.


Option 2:  Elementary 100% Remote/Distance Learning Program TK-5

This option will have your student~

  • continue with a 100% remote/distance learning model four days per week.
  • participate in one day of asynchronous (independent assigned learning time) lessons (Wednesdays).
  • assigned to an AM (group A) or PM (group B) stable learning group.
  • follow Remote/Distance Learning Program bell schedule (see below).

Our reopening maintains a strict health and safety protocol, which is the most critical aspect of our ability to bring students back. Please review our District Reopening Guide for more information.
