Dear Campbellsport School District Families,
The purpose of this communication is to update you again about our District’s continued responses to the pandemic COVID-19 situation. Governor Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services have issued a statement (https://dpi.wi.gov/sites/default/files/news-release/dpinr2020-27-A_0.pdf) requiring the closure of all public and private schools in Wisconsin. The Campbellsport School District will have school on Monday, March 16th and Tuesday, March 17th. Starting Wednesday, March 18th, there will be no face-to-face instruction through Monday, April 6th, at which time we will be following particular recommendations.
Please remember that “It takes a village to raise a child”. It will take the efforts of both the schools and our families to continue working together to meet the needs of educating and supporting your child during this temporary school closure. The teaching staff and schools will be preparing for the specific logistics on how this process will work. We ask for your patience as this process unfolds. More information will come out as we develop procedures and as we collect more information that needs to be shared. This is a work in progress.
For now, what can you do? Start planning how you will have supervision of your children. Next, do some spring cleaning to set up a student work station. This space should be comfortable, well lighted (natural if possible), and have the resources to work for longer periods of time. A comfortable couch or lounge chair may not be the best option. Start planning for how you or your family members can work together with the tasks that your child will be asked to complete. Is there a sibling who can help, a neighbor, grandparent, etc. who is available to offer guidance and maintain a schedule? Think about creating a schedule that builds in breaks and times to recreate. Learning can best take place in an orderly, structured environment.
In the efforts to move forward we will need some information from you. Please fill out the following form that will help us meet our needs by Monday, March 16th at 7:00 a.m. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf6mwyfpOrZrD2Z20QTVjLejBCnnkztLLkAnr9XH2b0dvtRhA/viewform?usp=sf_link
We will continue to communicate helpful updates as they become available and look forward to continuing our partnership with you. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-533-8381.
