“This decision was not made lightly. After reviewing survey data from District parents, survey data from the WLCSD staff, and thousands of survey comments and emails, the Board of Education concluded it is in the best interest of the entire school community to start the school year virtually as to ensure the safety of everyone,” reads a statement from the district.

The district recently conducted a survey of parents with the following results:
