Williamsburg-James City County schools division has released a comprehensive plan of options regarding the reopening of schools called Return to Learn: Forward WJCC Schools. It can be accessed here.
This multi-tiered plan details remote, blended and on-site avenues by which the school division is considering reopening. All options have been developed under guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the health department and the Virginia Department of Education.
The school division says it has yet to decide which path it will take to reopen. That decision is due by Aug. 5.
Regardless of which option is chosen to start the school year — the division says plans are subject to change based on current circumstances — one option will allow students to choose 100-percent virtual learning for the entire year.
Parents who wish to take advantage of this option must notify the school division by July 24 and complete this registration form.
Families are asked to check the Return to Learn website often for posted updates.

On July 1, pickleball, tennis courts, bocce and basketball courts and the Westbury Park pool and bathrooms reopened. A reminder that these are for use by residents and family members, not outside guests. Required reservation information and a liability waiver can also be found at fchoa.org
The Westbury pool is limited to 120 people and the Swim and Tennis club pool 80. Dedicated lap swim and water exercise periods will be managed separately and are limited to 24 people per morning period.
The HOA suggests residents take numerous health and safety precautions including:
maintaining a 10-foot distance from residents who aren’t family members when at a facility
using hand sanitizer before entering a facility and after each activity
masks are strongly encouraged in outdoor public areas when in close proximity to others except when swimming, exercising or in the case of a health condition. Facial coverings are required for anyone entering a clubhouse or exercise studio.
