The COVID-19 Pandemic has closed Wilkinsburg school buildings, but, thanks to a massive effort on the part of district teachers, administrators and staff, learning will continue – in the comfort and safety of students’ homes.
On Monday, April 13, the district will launch a new Learn at Home website. Assignments and educational materials for all grade levels and subjects will be posted daily by Kelly Primary and Turner Intermediate teachers. To access these materials, parents and students should visit the district’s website, www.wilkinsburgschools.org, and click on “Learn at Home.” Both paper and pencil and online assignments will be available for all grade levels.
Though these assignments are optional, completing them will ensure students stay on grade level and do not fall behind due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I am strongly encouraging our students to do these online assignments and enrichment activities that their teachers are preparing,” said Wilkinsburg Superintendent Linda Iverson. “The practice and review of previously taught skills this work provides will ensure students do not fall behind, and will be ready to return to class when schools reopen.”
Since not everyone has access to the internet, the district will continue to provide paper and pencil instructional packets at the South Avenue Methodist Church Grab and Go pick up site, located at 733 South Ave., on Monday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
