To Wautoma Area School District Parents and Guardians,
On July 13th, 2020 the Wautoma Area School District Board of Education approved starting the 2020-2021 school year with In-Person Teaching and Learning Monday-Friday with an option of At-Home Virtual Learning for parents who are not comfortable sending their child(ren) to school for In-Person instruction. Listed below are major items associated with this decision.
If you have not registered your child(ren) at this time, you can do so by visiting www.wautomasd.org and clicking on the Student Registration Button. Please contact Julia Staehler at 920.787.3354 extension 1210 if you have any registration questions.
If you are interested in the At-Home Virtual Learning option, please register your child(ren) using the process shown above and then contact your child(ren)’s respective principal to prepare for this process. List of principals:
- Redgranite Elementary School, Caitlin Reinke at 920.566.2357
- Riverview Elementary School, Jewel Mucklin at 920.787.4590
- Parkside School, Deb Premo at 920.787.4577
- Wautoma High School, Jennifer Johnson at 920.787.3354
Facial Coverings on the School Bus:
Because students cannot be properly physically distanced on the school bus and the ventilation system on school buses is not as effective as in the school buildings, we will require all students to wear facial coverings who ride the school bus or use school district transportation.
If your child(ren) normally rides the school bus, but you plan on transporting your child(ren) to school this year, please contact Dave Reilly at 920.787.3875 so he can make adjustments to the bus routes.
Facial Coverings at School
We will encourage (especially when 6 foot physical distancing cannot be achieved), but not require students to wear facial covering in the school setting. Students are welcome to wear facial coverings at any time during the school day regardless of the situation.
More Information to Come:
The District Administration will create a Wautoma Area School District 2020-2021 Reopening Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Document that will be placed on the district website, www.wautomasd.org, and will be updated frequently before the beginning of the school year. This document will have its own Home Page Button on the main page of the website. I will continue to message parents and guardians when updates occur to this document.
An example of topics that will be covered in this document include: Processes and Procedures for: Infection Control and Mitigation; Social and Emotional Learning; Academic Learning; Building and Department Operations; Visitor Restrictions, Community Use of Internal Areas; Student Transportation; and so on.
