Cleaning & Teacher Coverage Info


Each family must do a certain number of school cleanings each year as part of their involvement at WBS. A cleaning consists of two families per weekend, one to clean upstairs and one to clean downstairs, coming to the school on a weekend of their choice to do things such as vacuum, empty garbage cans, wipe down surfaces, clean kitchen countertops, bathrooms, etc. At the beginning of the school year, all families are given the opportunity to sign up for their cleaning weekends and teacher coverages for the entire year, so to best fit their schedule.


Teacher Coverages are held one Friday afternoon each month from 1-3pm. A teacher coverage time is when staff meet privately to review upcoming school plans while assigned parents teach the students. Each coverage requires two parents to be with the Upstairs students and two parents to be with the Downstairs students (this may be two parents from one family or two different families working together). What do you teach? The possiblities are endless! This may be a great time for you to showcase a particular skill or knowledge set you may have with the class. For example, if you play an instrument, you could do some music instruction or teach the history of that instrument or genre of music. Do you like to go on field trips? You could take the students to a local museum or exhibit for the afternoon. The teachers are great for helping with ideas if you aren't sure what to do.
