    Dear Parents & Caregivers,

    On August 4, 2020 the School District of Wisconsin Dells held commencement for the Class of 2020, and this signified the last official event at the “old WDHS.”  The weather was picturesque, and it was so good to once again see the graduates, their parents and other family members and friends of this class.  A very special thank you to Mr. Gaston, Mrs. Hoch and Senior Class Advisor Troy Ryan for ensuring such a nice ceremony, given the challenges of being able to conduct an in-person graduation ceremony.  As I stated as part of my welcoming address, I cannot think of a more fitting group of seniors to close out the end of an era, and I would like to wish the very best for the graduates of the Class of 2020.  The world is yours!  Go get it! 

    The District is about to begin the 2020-21 school year.  There is no doubt this year presents the most challenges ever, and everyone will need to exercise their greatest cooperation, flexibility, and patience for this to be a successful school year. ...READ MORE

  • Covid-19 Notifications in the School District of Wisconsin Dells

    October 29, 2020

    Dear School District of Wisconsin Dells Parents/Caregivers:

    Over the last few days, the county health departments have notified the district of six individuals within our school system that have tested positive for COVID-19. This virus is transmitted through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. Persons within six 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 required to self-quarantine for at least 14 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. ...READ MORE

  • Covid-19 Notifications in the School District of Wisconsin Dells

    Dear SDWD Parents & Caregivers,
     
    The district has been notified by the local health departments of several positive COVID cases.  In evaluating the next course of action the district will be moving forward and having all eighth grade students move to remote/virtual learning for the next two weeks beginning Monday, October 19, 2020 additionally at WDMS the same applies to one specific seventh grade cohort.  With regard to a case at Spring Hill Elementary a section of fourth grade will move to remote/virtual learning also beginning Monday, October 19, 2020.  
     
    Finally, as this message is being delivered to district families the reported cases at LDES and WDHS are being contact traced.  As a reminder, WDHS has been virtual all week and students are not scheduled to return until Thursday, October 22, 2020.  If necessary, there will be follow up communication to these schools.    
     
    In many cases, the close contacts that are required to quarantine are teachers and/or teaching assistants and this is one of the key variables in moving to remote/virtually learning for the two week period.  The district will continue to work with the county health departments and continue to push out notifications such as these.  
     
    Thank you for your flexibility and patience!  In the interim, please continue to take the necessary precautions to remain COVID free.  
     
    Please click here for the notification.
     
    Terry

  • 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.
