On June 22, 2020, the Wisconsin DPI issued Education Forward guidelines for the reopening of schools this fall. We have been working on regional reopening plans for the past month and will continue these complex, lengthy, and essential discussions as we move closer to the fall.
There are many scenarios that will be discussed and examined, but, as we have seen during the past few months, this situation is constantly changing. We remain committed to building and maintaining an educational system that allows for in-person, virtual, and/or asynchronous instruction to best cover any and all needs as well as provide for family choice heading into autumn and beyond.
Our planning will blend common sense and reasonable mitigation strategies related to COVID-19 as well as the needs of a true future-ready instructional model, but there may well be COVID-19-related suggestions that we are not able to meet due to other constraints or realities.
The Prentice School District will work to communicate our plans completely and thoroughly as we draw closer to September of 2020. We will communicate much more as summer progresses and are planning to survey parents in early July as to their feelings and needs for the fall. This information will be blended into our decision-making process and a formal plan will be released in early August.
Until then, we hope everyone is enjoying summer!
