Honorary Players and Family
Joslyn Taylor, a Senior Honors’ student, is a kind and compassionate leader. There isn’t a time that Joslyn doesn’t greet her peers and our staff with a smile and a kind word. Camp #bebetter wouldn’t have been the same without her as a student intern this summer! She was an amazing role model who was patient and knew how important it was to build relationships with the students. Thank you, Joslyn for your leadership and for sharing for big heart with all of us, and thank you for being a Redskin!

August 23, 2021 Parents, As you know, Wapakoneta City Schools will not be requiring masks while students are in attendance. It will be up to families to determine if they would like for their child to wear a mask during the school day. I do think it is important to share the following information: • We will continue to clean/sanitize the buildings. • There will be hand sanitizer available in various locations in each building. • We will do our best to socially distance students (at least 3 feet apart) where possible. • If students are sick at school we will be sure to contact you as the parent to make sure they receive proper care. We will not require students to be tested. If your student does demonstrate symptoms we will ask you to provide a doctor’s note for their return to school. I also understand there can be some confusion when it comes to understanding quarantining rules as those have changed over time. We will do everything we can to make sure that our students remain in school, but we cannot guarantee that during the day they will “never” come into contact with someone who may test positive. The rules for quarantining when it comes to “close contact” are: 1. Students who are vaccinated do not have to quarantine if they are exposed to COVID-19. 2. Students who wear masks and are exposed can also remain in the normal classroom setting, and participate in extracurricular/sporting activities as long as they have no symptoms. *I think it is vital to be aware of the information above. I know that kids being in school and participating in extracurriculars is very important. The only way to assure that your child does not have to quarantine due to exposure would be one of these two ways. Again, these are personal decisions, and I am leaving the choices up to you. However, I do not think it would be fair to start the year and for you to not have all of the information. Our goal at WCS is to have an outstanding school year and do our very best to make it a normal year for our kids. We want nothing more than to have them safe and healthy and at school every day this school year! Please contact me directly if you have any questions. Sincerely, Aaron M. Rex Superintendent
