Information for Parents & Guardians
February 25, 2021
Today at 2:00 PM Wisconsin’s Department of Health Services released their weekly COVID-19 burden rate (Burden is the total number of cases per 100,000 Wisconsin residents in the last two weeks). As a district, we have committed to assessing the burden rate for Pierce County on a weekly basis and make necessary programming shifts for the overall well-being of students and staff.
On August 19th, the Prescott School Board voted to add additional measures to our Return to Learn plan for the district with largest of these being the possibility of a hybrid instructional model, in which only half of the student body would come to school on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the other half of the student-body would come to school on Thursday and Friday.
The decision to shift to this model of education will be based on certain metrics taken both internally and from the county level only if needed.
Return to Learn Update Video (8/20/20)
Today's update is sent to provide more specific detail about where and when face coverings will be required. This step is taken in concert with social distancing, increased hand washing, and cleaning practices that will be in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 contagion. The use of Face Coverings is a critical part of the puzzle to ensure we can stay open and remain on campus for as long as possible this academic year. This step is essential to protect staff, students, and our families. These plans will also be available on our web site as we continue to place the most recent information in an ever-changing environment. Specific questions can be directed to your building principal or to my office.
