Return to School Guidelines

Please help us to keep our students healthy and safe this school year:

  • Please complete this health questionnaire for each student every morning before leaving for school:  
  • Students must stay home if they are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been confirmed to have COVID-19 or if required by DPH to isolate or quarantine.
  • Keep children who are sick at home; do not send them to school.  Do not send children to school with a fever of 100.4º or greater.
  • Teach your children to wash their hands frequently with soap and running water for 20 seconds.
  • Students in grades 4-12 must wear cloth face coverings in the school building, except when doing so would inhibit the individual’s health. Face coverings should be worn by children in grades pre-k through 3rd grade, except when doing so would inhibit the individual’s health.
  • Teach your children to cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or by coughing into the inside of the elbow.
  • Teach your children to practice physical and social distancing by staying at least six feet away from people other than your family.

7th and 8th Grade Schedule Change for Week of 5/3 and 5/10

Due to 7th Grade Social Studies and 8th Grade Science SBAC testing during the week of 5/3 and 5/10, our schedule for 7th and 8th grade will be changed Monday through Thursday ONLY.  Friday will be a normal schedule.  Please use the link for the TESTING SCHEDULE in order to see times for classes.  Be sure to look at the correct grade level for your student.

High School Sports Physicals

The Lake Forest High School Wellness Center is offering sports physicals to our 8th grade students entering 9th grade at the high school.  Check out the flyer for details.

State Testing Information

Assessment season is upon us! Delaware’s accountability assessment for ELA and Math is the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA). In addition to the SBA, 8th grade students will complete the DeSSA Science Test and 7th graders will complete the DeSSA Social Studies Test. We will begin testing with Lake week students on Monday, April 19th for all grade levels. Earbuds are required for the SBA. We recommend your child brings his/her own earbuds to school; however, we will also have some available for student use. Please keep in mind that the newer iPhone earbuds (with the lightening adapter) will not work with our computers, and neither will Bluetooth earbuds/airpods/headphones. Only standard/traditional headphones are compatible with district computers.

            In order to avoid any testing improprieties, it is imperative that cell phones are not present in the testing environment. Students are asked to either leave their cell phones at home on testing days or ensure they are turned off and given to the teacher during the testing session. Phones will be returned as soon as the session has concluded each day. Please support our endeavors to maintain an appropriate testing environment.

           Below is a table that explains when WTC students will be testing. Students are only allowed to test in person, so we will be conducting testing on both Lake and Forest weeks. Please review this table, and ensure that your child is prepared for his/her testing by getting a good night’s sleep and eating a healthy breakfast. As always, our cafeteria serves breakfast every morning for each and every student.

            During the testing weeks, both virtual and hybrid students will follow an alternate schedule. There will be NO ZOOMS during the hours of 9:30a.m.-11:30a.m., but students are expected to complete the asynchronous work that has been assigned by each teacher. Students will then attend their zoom sessions/in person classes in the afternoon by following the testing bell schedule on the WTC website.

            For FULLY REMOTE STUDENTS, if you have not already done so, please visit this site https://forms.gle/oCRXATb9msAYzN8u7 and complete the testing survey.  A staff member from WTC will follow up to finalize the testing date for your student.

            For any further questions regarding State Testing, please email WTCdessa@lf.k12.de.us.
