Surprise! Two helpers showed up at CMS-HS to return student materials.
Student/Parent Note: May 14, 2020 Seniors and Parents, With the news of the Wisconsin Supreme Court overturning the extension of the Stay at Home order from the Department of Health Services, the portion affecting schools was excluded from their ruling. That being said, nothing has changed in regard to those portions of the closure order concerning schools. According to several legal advisors, what has been happening in schools still is applicable and the expectation. We continue to work on plans for graduation, promotions, summer school options, and the start of the next school year. As these and other developments unfold we will be releasing the pertinent information. Our plan is to have an in-person ceremony in July and we will be sharing our plans with the seniors and their families in the near future. Respectfully, Todd Hencsik Paul A. Amundson
CHS is proud to announce that we are a recipient of a 2019 Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council Pacesetter Award as a result of our student participation and performance on the 2019 AP Exams. Congratulations to all of our CHS teachers and students for this award.
Campbellsport Parents May 8, 2020 After more than thirty days of the mandated closure there are less than twenty remaining days to the ‘end of the school year’. There have been many bumps for you as parents and the teaching staff in this unique situation. Teachers are phasing down assignments and shifting to a more review directed approach. We are having discussions defining what are the expectations in a Pass/Fail system shift. Continue to encourage and support, as you have been, your student(s) in completing their assignments. Virtual, email, text communication and the Exchange Center are still the main communication pathways we have. Several additional points of particular interest to many of you. First, with the current ‘Badger Bounce Back’ program and State’s Order in place, there can be no school promoted or approved gatherings such as grade promotions, concerts, practices, recognition parades or graduation ceremonies. Regarding scheduling, we will be setting a date for graduation when more definition is given to us by the Health Department. Second, each building is arranging for a safe manner to return the contents of your students desks/cubbies/lockers to them. Be aware that no one should be in any of the buildings except the Exchange Centers, and there should be no personal contact. Watch for communication from each building’s team. Third, the dates for returning chromebooks (other school tech) and textbooks have been set during the first week in June. The Technology Crew will be at EES on June 3rd from 10:30am - 1:00pm and at CES on June 4th from 10:30am - 2:30pm to check in District Chromebooks. Then on June 5th from 10:00 am - 3:00pm they will be at the Middle-High School. During this time you may also check in any textbooks or library books you may have. All of these will be located near that building’s Exchange Center. If you are unable to make any of those times, you may check in your items on June 9th from 12 (noon) - 6:00pm at the MS-HS building. This has been a unique and hopefully singular incident in this country. We understand that the education delivered during these approximately fifty days has been different. We are continually assessing the choices we are making with the information we had or now have. Finally, we all hope to return to a more normal school year in the fall. Although there will be certain adjustments, we can not wait to see the bright faces and minds of our students again.
Middle School and High School Parents and Students: All locker contents (shelving, decorations, notebooks, supplies, etc), graduation items, and middle school yearbooks that were previously ordered will be distributed next week. Distribution schedule is as follows: Monday, May 11 Seniors last name beginning A thru L 7:30 am – 10:30 am Seniors last name beginning M thru Z 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm Tuesday, May 12 Juniors last name beginning A thru L 7:30 am – 10:30 am or Sophomores last name beginning A thru L 7:30 am – 10:30 am Wednesday, May 13 Freshmen last name beginning A thru L 7:30 am – 10:30 am Juniors last name beginning M thru Z 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm Sophomores last name beginning M thru Z 1:00 pm – 4:00pm Freshmen last name beginning M thru Z 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm Thursday, May 14 Grades 6 – 8 last name beginning A thru L 7:30 am – 10:30 am Grades 6 – 8 last name beginning M thru Z 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm For ease of pick up, items have been sorted and bundled by family so you only have to pick up once. Parents/Students will only be allowed to pick up their own family possessions. If you are unable to pick up at your assigned time, please email Cindy McGray at firstname.lastname@example.org to make other arrangements. Please enter in the driveway off of Highway 67 near the Middle School – High School office. An attendant will assist you when you arrive. We will be having CURBSIDE PICKUP. YOU MUST STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE.
Campbellsport Parents: April 17, 2020 As you have heard, Governor Evers has issued an executive order closing schools for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year. We are saddened that our classrooms and hallways will continue to remain empty as we deeply miss all of our students. Educational expectations continue from the State of Wisconsin, Department of Public Instruction for public school districts. Students need to continue to complete school work as assigned by their teacher(s) through the end of the scheduled school year. Besides virtual delivery systems, the ‘Exchange Centers’ continue to be a means of assignment handling per your needs and the individual teacher direction. These spaces besides having new air purifiers are cleaned and sanitized twice a week. The administrative staff had begun planning for the possibility that classes may not meet again this school year. We have started discussions on grading implications, declaring an ending date for “classes”, how student lockers/desks will be processed, the credit impact for high school students, return of Chromebooks checked out and the list goes on. Events like graduation, prom, spring concerts, grade promotions and other celebrations hit everyone as great losses and we will do our best to recognize them at another time or in other ways. Your student’s principal will be in contact with you as they develop plans for these. We understand the significant impact this has on your family, and want you to know that we are here to support and encourage. Together, we must keep your students learning through this education situation whether offsite/virtually. We know families may need additional support at this time; please remember that our school counselors are available. The best manner to connect with them is directly at their email address or through your student’s principal. We will continue to provide a free lunch and breakfast to any student age 18 and under on school days. Hours for pick-up will continue to be between 11am - 1pm at the three school locations. If you did not have the chance to sign up and would like to be added to the list for the Grab and Go Breakfast/Lunch Program please use the following links: For Students attending Campbellsport Public Schools: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdVtqFQgVqS70uvnAknuFF9q1TiLpcfwkRskwOIOKPwGux1_A/viewform For Private/Homeschooled Students residing in the Campbellsport School District https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeHRH9e323bZ6pQc1GYeaEw-zVUvrPmcwcHNYuVl0wVxhSYMg/viewform Please watch for other communications from your student’s teachers, principal and myself. We will release information related to this situation as processes are developed. Sincerely, Paul A. Amundson, District Administrator
April 3, 2020 Dear Campbellsport School District The safety of our students and staff is always our number one priority. We are taking extra steps to ensure their safety after learning today that a second employee tested positive for COVID-19. Like our first confirmed case, this second employee also was feeling ill, got tested, self-quarantined at home and finished that quarantine period before the positive test result came back. Both have recovered. The first employee fell ill on March 13, went home early and has not been back since. This person now has a physician authorization to return to work but is working from home for an additional two weeks as an extra precaution. Students have not been in our schools since March 16. The second employee developed symptoms on March 18 and has not been in school since that day. Once cleared, that employee also will not return for two weeks, per District policy. We are aware of no other employee who has been tested or is awaiting test results. While we can not legally release the identity of our employees, we can tell you that the Fond du Lac County Health Department investigated the first confirmed case and notified all CSD staff members and families who may have had contact with that employee in the 48 hours prior to developing symptoms. The Health Department is now investigating today’s confirmed test result and will contact anyone who had contact with that employee. We are increasing our sanitization and cleaning procedures at all of our schools to protect our staff and families. That cleaning includes new processes to sanitize our homework drop-off and packet pick-up for those families who are unable to connect at home with digital learning. We are continuing a high level of cleaning practices as recommended by the CDC in areas where families stop to pick up meals or homework. About 150 families a day are picking up meals at our school sites, and we are delivering via school vans meals to about another 150 families. Most of our staff has been working from home and next week we will further reduce the number of staff in our school buildings. We are urging staff to monitor their health and if they feel ill, to stay home. Our schools will remain closed until at least April 24 under the state’s Safer at Home order to help contain the spread of coronavirus and save lives. That date likely will be extended. We know this may be concerning to hear about confirmed cases, but we believe we are doing all we can at the school district level to help contain the community spread of this virus. Please be well, wash your hands and thanks for supporting our children in their learning at home. Paul A. Amundson District Administrator
Campbellsport Parents: April 2, 2020 We are entering the third week of the closure of Campbellsport Schools as are all schools in Wisconsin. Although the initial Executive Order from Governor Evers mentioned April 6 as a potential ending date, his Safer at Home order extended the school closures until ‘April 24th or until a superseding order is issued.’ So the Campbellsport Schools will remain closed. We will continue to prepare bag lunches and breakfasts for any student enrolled in Campbellsport District schools and education opportunities through virtual or traditional means as we have been doing. Next week was scheduled as a short week (Mon - Wed) on the original school calendar but we are using it as ‘ease back’ days from the regular flow of student work. This seam will also be used as a period of reassessing by staff of the procedures we have been using throughout the District during this long-term crisis. Please Continue to Be Safe and Take Care, Paul A. Amundson District Administrator
Dear Campbellsport Parents: This letter is to inform you that an employee of the Campbellsport School District has tested positive for COVID -19 . This information was made available to me today. The infected employee showed symptoms of illness just before the decision to close schools and has been home and away from all District school buildings since March 13, 2020. As of today, the employee has been medically cleared to return to work and has past the recommended timeframe for isolation. The reality is this viral infection is spreading and will continue to spread, and we each must individually and collectively adjust our routines to minimize its effect. Due to the potential spread of COVID-19 the Wisconsin Department of Health Services authorized closing public schools and public gatherings. What is COVID-19? Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. People with confirmed infections have a range of symptoms, from little to no symptoms to people being severely sick and dying. Symptoms may include fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache, fatigue, body and muscle aches, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Not everyone with COVID-19 has all of these symptoms. For many, symptoms are mild, with no fever. It is important to know that you can still spread (transmit) the virus to others even if you have mild or no symptoms. Respectfully, Paul A. Amundson District Administrator
