WSES Temporary Remote Schedule for Hybrid Students

As a reminder, IWCS will be shifting its in-person continuum students to temporarily remote effective tomorrow, January 4th through January 15th. Due to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, this means in-person continuum students will not return to the building until Tuesday, January 19th.

Virtual students’ schedules, teachers, and Zoom links will not change at all.

4th grade:
9:00-9:45 ~ Encore
10:00-10:45 ~ Core 1
1:00-1:45 ~ Core 2
2:00-2:45 ~ Core 3

5th grade:
9:00-9:45 ~ Core 1
10:00-10:45 ~ Encore (combined with 6th grade)
1:00-1:45 ~ Core 2
2:00-2:45 ~ Core 3

6th grade:
9:00-9:45 ~ Core 1
10:00-10:45 ~ Encore (combined with 5th grade)

WiFi Hot Spots

Isle of Wight County Schools has stationed four school buses at areas throughout the county to provide an additional resource for families who may not have internet access at home. The buses are located at the Otelia Rainey Center in Camptown, Bethany Presbyterian Church in Zuni, First Gravel Hill Baptist Church in Smithfield, and the Carrollton Cove Shoppes in Carrollton. The buses will be parked in these locations through the end of the current academic year. The hope is that families can use these hot spots to download assignments for their children that can be worked on at home.
