    Dear Parents & Caregivers,

    At the time of drafting this article, our high school students are just beginning their second semester classes.  Simultaneously, they are going to begin the first week(s) of the semester in a virtual format due to a recent uptick in positive COVID cases.  Hopefully, this will be like it was this past fall, allowing our high school students to hit the reset button and encounter a good run of in-person learning as we all look ahead to spring.  One school calendar item to note is that the District will have a three-day weekend with no classes for students on Friday, February 26, 2021.  We hope you enjoy the long weekend to break up some of the winter doldrums we sometimes experience.   ...READ MORE

  • September 13, 2020 Message from the SDWD School Nurse

    Hello School District of Wisconsin Dells Families,

    Our school district is working closely with our local county health departments and are following specific guidelines to help keep our students and staff safe.  

    Due to the pandemic and increasing levels of spread of COVID-19 in our community, we are using a liberal approach when determining whether or not to send students home due to illness. If a student is displaying mild symptoms, it is best to send them home in case it is the beginning of a COVID-19 infection. This decision-making can reduce the risk of the virus transmitting to one or more students or staff in the school. If it is appropriate to send a student home based off of symptoms, it is also required that any siblings who share a household and attend any of our schools must also be sent home. Your student will receive a letter with their specific symptoms and also receive instructions and information  on when the student and their siblings can return to school. 

    Students will need to meet certain criteria to be sent home for illness. Symptoms are separated into 2 categories.  The first category includes major symptoms. A student would only need to have one of these symptoms to be sent home.  The second category includes less severe symptoms.  If the student does not have any symptoms from the first category, they would need to have 2 or more of the less severe symptoms to be sent home. 

    Please also be aware that when being sent home with illness symptoms, it is highly recommended and encouraged to be tested for COVID-19.  We understand that seasonal allergies and colds are common this time of year.  Testing is still encouraged because COVID-19 can mimic seasonal allergies and the common cold in children and adolescents.

    If a student is symptomatic and not tested for COVID-19, they will be required to isolate at home and their siblings will be required to quarantine at home. In these instances, they are considered to be probable positive cases, unless proven differently with a negative test result or alternative diagnosis from their Doctor. If there is an alternative diagnosis, a letter from their Doctor is required. 

    If your student is sick and you are keeping them home from school, you will need to keep all siblings home as well. Please notify their school's secretaries. If at all possible, speak to a secretary directly over the phone.  They will be able to provide you information on when your students can return to school.  

    Our ultimate goal is to keep our community healthy and be able to keep our students in school. Thank you for your help and understanding. 

    Michelle Jenkins, BSN, RN

  • Start-of-school plans, new student enrollment and district registration

    Administrators have created a "start of school" plan for each school building. Visit the homepage of your school's website to learn what each building is doing to begin the 2020-21 school year. 

    The District rolled out its New Student Online Enrollment feature in late June, and we encourage new families to use this feature. However, paper packets via the district office are available for those who do not have access to online enrollment or for students who left the district and now wish to re-enroll.

    In addition, the District also began registering returning students online.

    The New Student Online Enrollment and Registration for Returning Students can now be found on a dedicated channel on our website called Registration & Enrollment.
