Policy on Quarantine, Notification
- The Health Department, (not WCCC), manages the following:
Contract tracing (with the help of our staff).
Determining any person(s) "exposed" that needs to be quarantined.
Communicating with COVID 19 positive person, and those that are considered exposed.
Setting the guidelines for safe return to school/work.
The privacy of students/staff is our priority. Anyone that is considered "exposed" will be contacted. So if we have a case and your student is not contacted by the WCHD, consider no news, good news.
These are unique times and there are no perfect solutions or answers. We want families to know that we are trying to do the best we can to provide students a safe environment while they prepare for their future in the career field they love! If you ever have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. You can call or email us at [email protected]
High School Transportation Info
By law, transportation to and from WCCC is provided by each student’s partner district. Students may choose to drive to campus on their assigned day. Open enrolled students, who are not enrolled at one of WCCC’s partner districts, must provide their own transportation. Please check with your individual school district to understand their transportation plan for WCCC students. Click HERE for a list of bus garage numbers.
Since transportation is provided by the partner school, please follow their individual guidelines relating to social distancing and wearing a face mask/covering when riding the school bus to/from WCCC. Once on WCCC’s campus, a mask will be required.
Adult Education Open Protocols
Adult Education is open with lab instruction. The WCCC Authorized Testing Center is also open. The Aspire Office is operating vitrually for the summer. See the Aspire webpage for more info. WCCC’s prime consideration is for student safety and health during this attempt at returning students to their labs for this invaluable on-site hands-on training.
See CARES Act information at right.
In an effort to comply with governmental mandates, the following safety protocols are in place for Adult Education:
* Upon arrival, a non-contact thermometer will be used to monitor each student’s core body temperature before access to the building will be granted
* Building access will only be granted to students and staff members who have a core body temperature of less than 99.7°F
* Daily inquiries will be made related to symptoms consistent with Covid-19 infection
* Daily inquires will be made related to a student’s ingestion of medications which might reduce or disguise an elevated body temperature
* Staff and students will be required to wear masks which cover both mouth and nose for the entire duration of their time within the WCCC buildings
* Disinfection of your classroom will occur prior and after each class.
