A Message from Mr. Bugnacki
This weekend provides us an opportunity to unplug and spend MORE time with family. :) This three day weekend provides a reprieve from screen time, Google Hangouts, Zoom, conference calls, emails. Enjoy the extended weekend and disconnect . I recognize as we enter this weekend, coming off of two weeks of virtual learning, that I have a significant learning curve on some items. I am grateful that my colleagues are patient and spend the time teaching and reteaching me. This new environment has turned us all into LEARNERS. The practices, strategies, techniques and expectations I am most comfortable with, don’t work so well in this new virtual environment. We may need a bit more on this, and a bit less on that. We are all learning, so allow for mistakes, feedback, adjustments and redos. Isn’t that the learning process?! We learn from doing!

As we look ahead we know we need answers on: fourth quarter reporting; recording teacher feedback and student engagement; graduation; summer school and any litany of other items. We are working diligently to get the right answers that are in the best interest of our students. We are learning and will get it right!

Thanks for the support and partnership. We know that parents are the first teacher and the best teacher for your son/daughter. Starting next week this COVID-19 Newsletter will only be published Wednesdays. We’ve moved from a M, W, F publication to a M & F publication and now just to a Wednesday publication. As the communications from the schools ramp up, it’s reasonable to ramp down the district communications. During this extended weeknd, communicate the joy and appreciation you have for one another and your neighbors ( try to do it NOT USING Google Hangout, Zoom, email … ). Wishing you and your family an enjoyable holiday weekend.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy. — Martin Luther King Jr.

Thank you to the 675 parents who were able to take our Virtual Learning Feedback Survey! We are all committed to the success of your students and that includes continued efforts to make the virtual learning experience a success!  Though the district is midway through processing these results, we have heard how valued the “live” or virtually recorded teacher’s instruction and GoogleMeetings are! We will continue to emphasize this approach as teachers continue to build content for your children.  Thank you again, for taking the time to complete this survey! We look forward to reading all of your comments and feedback as we continue on this learning journey together!

We appreciate all of the feedback, from areas to celebrate and areas to refine. Here is some of what we heard:
  • Instruction from the teacher is valued and the more their face can be seen, the better. 
  • Pacing is important, quantity of lessons and application time needs to be considered.
  • Meeting Expectations came through every level over and over -  frequency, teacher face seen, meet with every child, class meet time, office hours held at reasonable times, daily and weekly schedules for all levels needs to be established for consistency.

Social Distancing

Today, Governor Tony Evers directed the DNR to close several state parks and recreational areas to help protect the health and safety of those residing in Wisconsin. If you and/or loved ones choose to visit one of the Ozaukee County Parks for much needed fresh air and exercise please keep the following tips in mind.
  1. Maintain a social distance of 6 feet at all times.
  2. Do not gather in large groups. 
  3. Do not visit the county parks or trails when you are ill and/or are experiencing symptoms.

This continues to be one of the most important things we can all do to help minimize the spread of illness to others and help maintain our own health.
Face Masks
The CDC is now recommending the use of face coverings when making any essential trips outside of your home to places such as the grocery store and/or pharmacy. It’s important to make sure that one is wearing the facial covering correctly AND continues to adhere to the CDC recommended 6 feet of social distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others.
