Mod F Learning Plans

WSA 3.0Updated 04-11-2021


Return to Fully In-Person Learning

The first week of Mod F, April 12-16, will serve as a Spring Break quarantine week to help ensure that families have time to follow safety protocols after travel or group activities.  Starting April 19, all grades will be returning to in-person learning on campus.  Grades 6-11 will attend in-person classes on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Seniors, due to the unique nature of their IB studies, will be attending in-person only on Mondays and Thursdays.  Teachers of seniors will be coordinating with those students by subject on synchronous and asynchronous work on Tuesdays and Fridays. Wednesdays will remain Reading Days for all grades with the exception of the last Wednesday of the Mod: May 19 is an in-person class day for grades 6-11.

Some after school activities have resumed in-person meetings on campus. 

Please email frontdesk@westsoundacademy.org if you need assistance with anything including admissions inquiries.


Transportation from Jefferson County and Bainbridge Island will resume for students whose parents responded to the transportation survey sent out just before Spring Break.  Social Distancing cannot be guaranteed in our vehicles.  Questions regarding transportation should be sent to Barrie Hillman at bhillman@westsoundacademy.org.

Opting Out

WSA is not offering a synchronous remote learning option while we are fully in-person, however, families who want to discuss opting out should contact Catherine Freeman at cfreeman@westsoundacademy.org.

Protocols for Symptoms

See the link to the revised document for detailed safety protocols and practices below. More and more folks are experiencing some symptoms, then receiving a negative COVID-19 test result, but are unsure whether to send a student to on-site learning.  If a person in your household has any of the symptoms that appear on the pre-screening form, even with a negative test, students and other members of the household should stay home until 72 hours after the symptoms have cleared.


Washington State is opening up vaccine eligibility for all people aged 16 and older as of April 16, 2021.  Students and families who are eligible to receive the vaccine are encouraged to get the vaccine. 

June Term

COVID conditions are requiring that the learning model be re-evaluated with each Mod, and information will be released as quickly as is feasible. It is the current intention to continue with on-site learning for June Term as well.

Summer Program

West Sound Academy is offering a program of high school courses this summer – July 12 through August 6. Students can earn credit in English, History, Spanish, and Math. Information can be found here: Summer Program
