43 – COVID-19 Update – Future Virtual Option – Rural Virtual Academy

June 4, 2021

RE: Future Virtual Option

This past school year the Oconto Falls Public Schools offered a virtual education option for students as an alternative to face-to-face education during the pandemic. The option provided involved students accessing their education through the utilization of Acellus programming. During the course of the year we gathered feedback regarding this option and determined that we would not move forward with Acellus for the 2021-22 school year as a virtual alternative.

On May 10, 2021, a recommendation was made to the Board of Education that we move forward and collaborate with the Rural Virtual Academy (RVA) for situations where an option other than face-to-face education is requested. The Board approved this recommendation, and we are currently collaborating with RVA staff to ensure information is available to those who have an interest in a virtual education option.

Please know that we are moving forward with a plan to have all students back in face-to-face learning environments, with face coverings optional, when we begin the 2021-2022 school year. However, we recognize that, in exceptional circumstances, a parent may want to consider another option. This is a link to the RVA website and will enable you to access information regarding RVA and their virtual programming.

If you are considering RVA, please contact Debbie Woods (920) 848-4471 to be added to our list to receive more information as it becomes available.

32 – COVID-19 Update – September 25 – Positive Case/Close Contact Update for Parents

September 25, 2020

 

Over the past few weeks we have addressed the needs of both students and staff within our school district that have tested positive for COVID-19.  In each of these situations, we worked collaboratively with the Oconto County Health Dept to address the needs of the individual that tested positive, and also identified any students or staff that were determined to be close contacts with the individual that tested positive.  Once close contacts were identified, we contacted those families that were directly affected.  In an effort to allow all of our families to stay informed related to new positive cases, please refer to the following LINK on our district webpage which will be updated each Wednesday.  The totals in the student columns will be added in the next few days to include data from today.  We will not be sending communications out to families each time we experience a positive case within our school district.  Instead, we will update this site weekly which will allow families to be aware of any new cases.  Please note that this data is general in nature as to protect the confidential nature of this information.  

As a school district, we continue to implement measures to mitigate the spread of this virus.  These actions include social distancing, good hand hygiene, and wearing face coverings.  You can assist us by incorporating the same strategies at home.  To support you in your efforts we are including guidance in our Student Decision Tree, if your child is exhibiting any symptoms please follow the decision tree and refrain from sending them to school.  Your thoughtfulness and assistance is greatly appreciated as together we can more effectively control the spread of COVID-19.  

It is important to note that yesterday the Governor of Wisconsin took action to declare a public health emergency Executive Order #90 .  In response to this public health emergency, the Governor has also extended the face covering requirement to November 21, 2020 Emergency Order #1.  Please note that our school district implemented a face covering requirement prior to the original state order which means that if the state order sunsets in the future, the face covering requirement will still be in place for all students, staff, and visitors until the Oconto Falls Board of Education would take action to rescind this expectation.
