Dear La Farge School Families,
We are aware of the fact that there are now three (3) confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVD-19) in Wisconsin and officials are predicting there are likely more to come. Although no cases have been identified in our general region, this situation has already affected several Wisconsin school districts and our leadership team felt it appropriate to provide some information regarding our planning in the event that an extended school closure would become necessary in the future.
District staff are working closely with state and local officials in monitoring this situation, and will rely on our information about student and staff health status, and their expertise to determine if and when a school closure is necessary. In the event of a school closure, the District is developing plans to continue to support students with the services they receive at school. We are committed to ensuring continuity of education and meal programs for our 4K - 12th grade students.
Below are some preliminary plans the District is considering as we prepare for the potential of a prolonged school closure. We will provide updates as plans are finalized.
Continuity of education for grades 3 - 12:
Continuity of education for grades 4K - 2:
Continuity of meal programs:
Specific plans will be communicated to students and families as soon as possible after a closure determination has been made. Please be aware that there would be no after school activities- whether academic, extra-curricular, or athletic, in the event of a closure.
What you can do to help the District serve our students, staff, and families efficiently and safely:
Additional details will be provided as they become available.
