Jefferson County Schools is providing the link to this application below through each child's school for next year*.  Instruction for next year may or may not be provided by a CWSES teacher, as the option for virtual school is a county-wide endeavor.  I strongly encourage you to read the requirements contained in the application before submitting.  If you have questions about JVA for next school year, please call the Office of Curriculum & Instruction (304-728-9255).  Please do NOT complete this form if your child will be attending school in the traditional on-site setting.
Thank you.
Dr. Tyler

*Rising 6th grade students must contact their assigned Middle School for information!

A few items to note for the 2020-2021 school year and CWSES:

1. The front doors open at 8:40 am and the school day will end for students at 2:40 PM every day. This is one hour earlier than previous years to allow for deep cleaning and sanitizing of all spaces.  If you will be picking your child up from school by car, please see the Dismissal link on your child's Google Classroom.  All families that are sending students in person still must log on to their child's Google Classroom for information.  Dismissal information appears only in that forum.

2.  We may not host any visitors inside the building.  Unfortunately, we are not permitted to allow entry to parents or visitors.  We will be conducting all business by telephone and/or from the call box out front.  Please be prepared to present your ID to the camera at the call box in order to proceed. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

3.  Your child must wear a mask every day in all spaces that are shared. This means that they must wear a mask to enter the building. Please ensure that your child has a face covering on when they enter the bus in the morning. Please remember to send a mask with your child everyday.

4.  During the school day - All students in grades 3-5 must wear a face covering at all times, even within their pod, until further notice.  Students in grades k-2 may not be required by our school to wear a mask at all times while in their pod (and socially distanced), but as a parent YOU may request that your child remain masked at all times while at school.  Please let your child's teacher know if this is your wish. Students in K-2 must wear a mask at all times when outside their pod (classroom).

5.  Common areas in our building are sanitized no less than 4 times per day. These areas include all bathrooms and high touch areas.  All classrooms have sanitizing and hand washing protocols in place.

6.  All students will eat lunch, have recess, and attend learning sessions within their pod at all times.  During the school day, no pods will mingle. Outdoor recess will only have one pod on the playground at a time.

7.  All children must pass through a temperature screening every morning upon arrival.  Any child with a temperature of 100.0 or above will report to our "Chill Zone" while a parent is contacted to come pick them up.  No child will be permitted to remain at school with a temperature.

8.  We have installed bottle filling stations in the building and all 'water fountains' have been closed. 

9.  Teachers will spend as much time as possible with classes outside - please be sure your child has a coat.


See the lunch schedule here:

Please remember that our building is closed and we are not permitted to meet with anyone in person.  This means all scheduled meetings will occur virtually.
