District Updates

Weather Delays & Closings

Embedded Image for: Weather Delays & Closings (2023124142932676_image.JPG)

WCCC is unique because we have students from all over the county, which makes decisions regarding weather issues even more challenging. While one community may have heavy snow, another area could be perfectly clear. We collaborate with all of our partner districts when deciding how to react to inclement weather, therefore, our decision may be a bit delayed compared to home districts.


It is important to remember that when it comes to weather-related issues, students always follow their homeschool FIRST.  


If a student's home district is:

Delayed - Students should arrive at their WCCC campus at the delayed start time determined by their district (one hour, 90 minutes, or two hours later). 

Home districts WILL still provide transportation to WCCC when they are delayed; contact them directly with any specific time questions.


Closed - Students do not come to WCCC; absences will be excused. 
Bus transportation will not be provided.


If WCCC is:

Delayed - Drivers should arrive at their WCCC campus at the delayed start time. This allows us to ensure our parking lot is clear and ready for students and staff.  


If WCCC is delayed and the student's home school is not, drivers should wait until the delayed start. Bus riders may still come at the normal start time; our doors will be open. Students will gather in the commons until the delayed start time so that we can supervise them until the start of school.  Attendance will not be taken until the delayed start time.


Closed - Students do not come to WCCC


Are you on placement? 

If we’re on delay, a parent/guardian needs to call and notify us by 9 am if students are going straight to work. If no notification is made, students will be counted absent.


If it’s a snow day, be certain that you contact your employer about their expectations. 


Notifications

We will notify students and staff of weather delays and closings as quickly as possible. Notification will be made in the following order:


  1. Posted on mywccc.org as a pop-up alert

  2. Automated calls and texts through our one-call system


Please do not rely on our social media for weather alerts. While we may occasionally post on social, this is not a reliable form of communication for timely messages. 


If you are not getting our notifications or need to update your contact information, please reach out to us at [email protected]

2:40 PM 

Incident Update
After a thorough investigation with Warren County Sheriff’s Office over the last two days, a juvenile has been identified as the source of the recent threat to our district. The suspect was taken into custody this afternoon. As a district, we will not tolerate threats of violence to our students, staff, or community. Thank you to the Sherrif’s department for their diligence in this investigation. We cannot commend our students enough for their cooperation throughout this situation; they care as much about having a safe and healthy learning environment as anyone. The suspect is a minor, therefore we are unable to release any additional information. We will continue to work with local authorities regarding this case.
Thank you again for all of your support, please have a great weekend.
Sincerely,
Joel King
Superintendent

6:30 PM

Around noon today, October 12, 2022, a threatening note was found in a boy's restroom on our Main Campus.  As soon as the note was found, we immediately contacted law enforcement and had all students and staff shelter in place. Once we had police on site and our campus was secured, we initiated a staggered release of all students while under the guidance and support of law enforcement. Adult education classes were canceled this evening in an abundance of caution. This was an unsubstantiated threat; the safety of our students and staff will always be our top priority.

Unfortunately, there have been rumors shared on social media sites that are untrue; this issue was a threat only, and no students or staff were harmed. We will continue to work closely with the Warren County Sheriff's Department to investigate the threat and see to it that anyone responsible is held accountable for their actions. We thank our staff and law enforcement partners for their support in keeping our students safe. BIg thanks also to our students and families for their patience during a stressful situation. 

Our District Incident Command Team met this afternoon to discuss and evaluate today's issue. After careful consideration and collaboration with the Sheriff's Office, we have determined that we will resume classes as normal tomorrow. We will have increased police presence at both campuses throughout the day. Students and parents can reach out to administration with any questions or concerns. 

We encourage students to speak up if they have any information regarding this case or any issue that threatens the safety of our students or staff.

Students and families can report issues that affect education or safety in multiple ways, including:

  • Speaking to an administrator or staff member directly.

  • Reporting issues anonymously online at See Something, Say Something

9/28/2022 Soft lockdown DRILL

9/28/22. 10:40 AM (Automated message sent to WCCC families)


Hello WCCC Families.

We wanted to notify you that we held a soft lockdown drill at the Atrium and Main Campus this morning. This lockdown allowed us to work with the Warren County Sheriff's Office and other partners to conduct a canine-assisted contraband sweep. These sweeps involve highly trained, non-aggressive detection dogs to sweep throughout random classrooms and areas of our school to proactively locate dangerous items. This effort aims to deter students from bringing illegal substances to school and keep our campuses safe. 


The best news is that both campuses were clean, and NO dangerous drugs or items were discovered! As always, we are proud of our students and know they are responsible, respectful, and remarkable young adults!


If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us anytime.

"Swatting" and Emergency/Urgent Procedures Reminder

Hello WCCC Families.

You may have heard of recent “swatting” incidents in local communities involving false reports of shootings, bombs, and other school threats, triggering massive police responses and heightened student and parental anxiety. This trend known as “swatting” involves a caller making a false report to the police to draw in first responders, including SWAT teams; thus, the term “swatting.”

Our WCCC Incident Management Team met this afternoon to review the details of recent local instances to be proactive and stay prepared for all types of emergencies and situations. 

We want to take this time to remind students and families of a few things regarding safety and emergency procedures for our district. 

If you see something suspicious, say something! Students and families can report issues that affect education or safety in multiple ways, including:

  • Speaking to an administrator or staff member directly.

  • Reporting issues anonymously online at: https://www.publicschoolworks.com/SHL/helpLine.asp?di=136&mi=9 
    The link can be found at the bottom of mywccc.org; click campus safety

  • Calling 1.866.listen2me
    - Press 1 to leave a message or press 2 to speak to someone directly.

If there is an emergency on any WCCC Campus, we will contact families as quickly as possible through our all-call system (the same system this message was sent on). 
Contact will be made in the following ways:

  • Emergency/Urgent situations: Recorded voice messages, text messages

  • Non Emergencies: Text messages and emails

Please remember in any emergency that the safety of our students and staff would be our top priority. We would do everything in our power to keep students safe and healthy and notify families as quickly as possible. We ask that you would help us by following any guidance or direction we provide so that we can get students and staff situated safely and back to normal as quickly as possible. 

We don’t want to cause unnecessary stress or panic for our students or families; we just commit to being diligent and prepared for all situations. We want families to know what to expect in an emergency or urgent situation. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. Feel free to contact your campus administration or, as always, email our info line at [email protected]
