Hope all is well with you and your family. There are a few items for you to be aware of. Please take the time to complete the parent survey that is linked below. We will be making some very important decisions regarding instruction, transportation, and what measures we will have in place for reopening schools this fall. The survey link will be open for one week, June 23-30. Also, there are some important changes to Food Service for July. Please read the information carefully. Finally, we will be gradually reopening the District starting July 1 with student activities in small groups. We will be taking several precautions to keep the schools as safe as possible. It is important for you to understand that sending your student(s) is completely your choice.

Food Service:
• Starting Monday, June 29, 2020 our curbside meal program will be changing pick up days to Mondays ONLY. On Mondays you will be able to come to the High School between 11:00 am and noon and pick up breakfast and lunch for the entire week. These will be pre-packed meals from our supplier. They contain all the components needed for a nutritious breakfast and lunch! Please look for the link to sign up for July on Tuesday, June 23; the deadline will be 6:00 pm on Friday, June 26. This is a ONE time sign up to receive meals on Mondays for the entire month of July. To ensure every family gets the correct number of meals, you MUST sign up. If you would like to be removed from the list after you have signed up, please contact the District Office at (608) 897-2141. Thank you for your continued support in our Food Service program!

Summer:
• Starting July 1, the District will be allowing students on the school grounds in groups of ten or less for school-related activities. These groups will be organized, scheduled, and supervised by Coaches/Directors. Students should not be on school grounds except for their scheduled time. All students will be required to submit a waiver form, which is linked to this Update, and will be provided with a self-assessment form that they should review before each day of attendance. Masks will not be required, but all social distancing guidelines and proper cleaning procedures will be followed.

• No non-school-related activities will be allowed on school grounds at this time.

2020-21 School Year:
• As mentioned previously, we have developed a committee of parents, staff, Administrators, and Board members to work on reopening plans for the 2020-21 school year. I want to thank the following committee members for their willingness to develop these plans; Brandi Withrow, Rhonda Olson, Thea/Seth Engen, Stephanie Tresemer, Amber Rear, Steve Krupke, Laura Powers, Dave Novy, Lisa Semrow, Jim Matthys, Mike Krupke, Don Buchanan, and Jodi Kail. Our first meeting was held last night, June 22. We discussed: instructional formats, possible distancing scenarios, schedules, technology programs, staffing, health/safety recommendations, training, transportation, and the CARES Act. As you can see from our list of topics, we have a lot of decisions ahead of us. Our next meeting will be July 1 and we will be looking at the parent survey results to help us make decisions on what instructional strategies we want to focus on. Again, please take a few minutes to participate in the parent survey.

Thanks and stay safe.
