    Dear Parents & Caregivers,

    It’s hard to believe we have a month of school in the books!  Our WDHS student-athletes are back in action and in many instances are experiencing more than their share of success.  This success has generated additional interest in their efforts, and for the first time our community has been able to experience this success first-hand.  With that said, the annual high school homecoming game is set for Friday, October 8, 2021 with kick-off slated for 7:00 p.m.  We hope to see you there!  If you follow us on Facebook, more announcements regarding homecoming activities will be posted in the near future.

    During the first month of the school year, the District has experienced more positive COVID cases than last year.  As such, the District has had to reinstitute the need for face coverings.  As previously stated, the goal of the District is to provide as much in-person instruction as possible.  This is one thing we learned last year during the pandemic.  We fully recognize this is a pervasive topic that at times has divided our country.  In order to meet the aforementioned goal, there will be a need for flexibility and patience in order for our students to remain receiving in-person instruction. ...READ MORE

Announcements

  • Covid-19 Notification in District

    October 14, 2021

    Dear School District of Wisconsin Dells Parents/Caregivers:

    The district received confirmation of an individual(s) within our school system that tested positive for COVID-19. This virus is transmitted through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. Persons within three feet for more than 15 minutes are considered Close Contacts and are at increased risk of developing this infection. A person who is a Close Contact with someone during their potential infectious period is recommended to self-quarantine for at least 10 days after the most recent contact. If a student or staff member is considered a Close Contact, they will be notified separately from the school and will receive further instruction from their local county health department.

    If your student is not vaccinated, your child should get tested on days 6 or 7 after the exposure, even if they do not have symptoms. It is recommended that they should wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following the exposure or until they receive a negative test result. 

    School Name: Lake Delton Elementary School (2 positive cases)

    Date of last attendance of diagnosed individual(s): Case #1 10/11, Case #2 10/13

    School Name: Wisconsin Dells High School (3 positive cases)

    Date of last attendance of diagnosed individual(s): Case #1 10/11, Case #2 10/12, Case #3 10/13

In reviewing our recent trend data WDHS will resume in-person instruction at full capacity on Monday, October 4, 2021. While we are excited about the return to full capacity, face coverings will be required next week and will be reevaluated prior to Monday, October 11, 2021.

  • Menu changes anticipated for 2021-22

    September 8, 2021

    Dear Wisconsin Dells School District Parents and Caregivers,

    The School District of Wisconsin Dells is participating in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Seamless Summer Option (SSO) for the entirety of the 2021-22 school year. This means that our school provides free meals to all students! This program provides additional support and flexibility for our district to continue serving meals to children while maintaining safety measures and managing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Included in the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are nationwide supply chain and product availability shortages. Disruptions are due to a lack of availability of raw ingredients and labor to produce, unload, and transfer food products. Some food and/or beverage products normally provided to students may not be available or arrive as scheduled. Due to unforeseen circumstances, last-minute menu changes and product substitutions may occur. ...READ MORE
