A Message From Our CEO

A Message From Our CEO

Welcome from WOLCS CEO Dr. Debbera Peoples-Lee

Dear West Oak Lane Charter School Community:

Our long-awaited return to the school building has been a success. Although, for the time being, WOLCS is operating on a hybrid model of in-person and remote learning, our outstanding teachers and staff have been enthusiastic about returning to school. Everyone has shown commitment to ensuring the 2021-2022 school year will be full of learning, growth, and success. 

Because our goal is to promote a healthy and safe school environment, we have continued the protocols set forth by the Philadelphia Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While we look forward to a return to normalcy, the recent rise of COVID-19 cases throughout Pennsylvania makes it essential that we all exercise caution. By state mandate, masks continue to be required, and precautions such as social distancing remain in place.   We ask parents and guardians to continue to ensure students wear face coverings to school each day.

Remote learning has opened public schools to a world of technology that can make our lives easier and our work more streamlined. School makeup days due to significant weather events are becoming a thing of the past. Parents no longer need to scramble across the city during rush hour for teacher conferences. And students can collaborate on projects during evenings and weekends, each from their own homes. These activities and so much more can all be accomplished by using our electronic devices.


Over this school year, we will continue to grow WOLCS' social media presence. If you have not had a chance to connect with us on Facebook, please take a moment to do so. You can connect with our “@WOLCSphila” school page by clicking here or on the Facebook icons throughout our website.
Wishing you all the best,

Dr. Lee
