Cases of COVID-19 are continuing to rise in Wisconsin, as they are across the country, driven by the highly-infectious Delta variant. Despite this increase in cases, we can take steps to keep COVID-19 from spreading in our schools by following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, DHS, and DPI.
As a district we strongly recommend all teachers, staff, and eligible students get vaccinated. We will also be enrolling in the K-12 School Testing Program and require masks and implement layered mitigation measures in all of our buildings.
As Wisconsin schools take these steps, DHS also urges Wisconsin families to take the steps necessary to protect themselves and their communities: mask up when indoors or outside where physical distancing is not possible, get vaccinated if you’re eligible (age 12 and over), and get tested and stay home if you’re experiencing any symptoms.
“Districts and schools can use our joint guidance as a roadmap for a safe return to in-person schooling; the asks are simple, and the rewards are great,” said Wisconsin State Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Jill Underly. “Wear a mask when inside buildings. Get vaccinated if you’re able to. Maintain safe distancing when possible.”
