2020-21 School Calendar Adjustment

Information
First published on 19 November 2020 Posted in District News

Good Afternoon Chilton families,
We are in our 12th week of in person instruction for the 2020-2021 School Year.
There is GREAT pride in what we have accomplished as a result of the partnership between school and our families.

As we have continued with our on campus instruction, there have been a number of things that happen behind the scenes to make this a possibility every day.
Most notable, is the dedication of our teachers, para-professionals, administrative assistants and administrators to substitute in the classrooms to provide coverage for those who are unable to be at work. This is no small feat as on average there is a need to cover up to 10 positions on a daily basis.

Our goal is to provide our students a high quality education during a pandemic and we know that the best place for our students is in school with their teacher. Teacher effectiveness is being challenged by COVID-19 and without healthy teachers we will be unable to have students in school. We have realized that in order to continue to provide in person instruction, teachers will need time to engage in activities that allow for best practices in meeting the diverse needs of students.

With this in mind, we will be adjusting the school calendar for the months of December and January. On Wednesdays, during these 2 months, the students will not attend school in person or virtually to provide the opportunity for teachers to engage in collaboration, assessment of academic and mental health of students, participate in professional development, plan for instruction and work with students who are falling behind.

Thank you so much for your continued support as we navigate these uncharted territories with the ultimate goal of providing a high quality in person education to our students.
Attached to this email is the Power Point that was presented to our Board of Education last night please view for additional clarification.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.

2020-21 Family Letter #1 - Fall

Information
First published on 23 July 2020 Posted in District News

Good Afternoon Chilton Families,

I hope your family has had an enjoyable Summer. Over the past months, we have been working to create a plan for our students to return to their learning in Fall. While planning we used the information received from the survey you completed in June, guidelines from the Department of Public Instruction, Center for Disease Control as well as Local and State Health Departments. It is through the use of this information that we have created our initial Return to Learning Plan. The overview of the plan is attached to this email and additional information will be sent out as we continue to monitor the status of the pandemic.

We are looking forward to our students returning, 5 days a week, to learning in Fall. There will be a number of measures put in place to help mitigate the spread of the virus. These measures include but are not limited to: social distancing, frequent hand washing and sanitizing, daily temperature checks for students, increased sanitation and cleaning, highly recommend face coverings, frequent hand washing and sanitation, removal of soft surfaces, training students on correct hand washing and sanitation as well as limiting access to school buildings.

Parents know their child best and will have the opportunity to choose what model of learning their children will engage in 5 days a week. We will be providing both an in-person and virtual option for the 2020/2021 School Year. Attached to this email is the overview of those options along with the initial plan. To help us make informed decisions moving forward, please take a moment to complete the survey.

If you are a parent of a child who attends Chilton Public Schools and did not receive the email please send an updated email to witts@chilton.k12.wi.us to receive the link.

Thank you for you continued support and flexibility as we plan for our students to return. We know this plan will continue to change and we will keep you informed of any updates.

Together we will create the very best educational experience for our students.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out with any additional questions, concerns or comments.

Take Care and have GREAT afternoon.
