A Message from Mr. Bugnacki
"Often when you think you're at the end of something, you're at the beginning of something else . "
~ Fred Rogers
We are ending our first week of virtual learning and pleased to say that we made it!! Yes there were some challenges, but with each challenge we leaned into it to find a resolution. We are known for quality instruction and we will meet and exceed that expectation during this time. We are working extremely hard, as you are, to ensure our kids are having a meaningful experience. Thank you for your patience, understanding and allowing for mistakes during this new reality. I don’t want to say we are settling into this new normal, because I don’t want this to be the new normal. WE WILL GET BACK TO NORMAL. We’ll take our lessons learned and apply them so when we return to our NORMAL operations, we’ll be in a better place than we were when we entered this crisis.
During this stressful time find your inspiration. I find my inspiration riding my bike. I rode to Port Washington this morning and captured this sunrise. Let this inspirational photo provide perspective and fuel your optimism as we embrace each and every day with a fresh outlook.

Social Connecting in a Time of Social Distancing
Social distancing is our new norm right now and we are all trying to find ways to create a sense of connectedness within our families and our community. With virtual learning underway, I would love your help. Please email me at kegelhoff@cedarburg.k12.wi.us your pictures/videos, stories, ideas, or simply inspirations you get from your children every day.

We are all connected. We got this! #WeAreCSD #inthistogether #CedarburgStrong

A reminder to please take a moment to complete our Virtual Learning Feedback Survey . We are seeking feedback from parents/guardians on how things went from the first week of virtual learning. The survey will close on April 8 at 4 PM. Your feedback will assist us with maintaining or refining our practices to you and your children.
In addition, the District Satisfaction Survey window has been extended to April 10 for staff, parents and students. If you have not had a chance to complete the survey, please check your email for a link to the survey from School Perceptions. Students in grades 4-12 should expect an email reminder from the CSD Technology Team with a link to complete the survey. Unless your child has opted out, please encourage your child(ren) to take the survey.

An Update on Standardized Testing : The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has been officially waived from our state testing obligations to the U.S. Department of Education for the 2019-2020 school year. All Wisconsin state testing for 2019-2020 has been postponed.
Tests included in the waiver for 2019-2020 are:
  • Forward Exam - Grades 3-8, 10
  • Dynamic Learning Map (DLM) - Grades 3-11
  • Aspire - Grades 9-10
  • ACT - Grade 11 (This waiver only applies to those students who did not complete the state administration of the ACT given in March. All state administered ACT tests that were completed by our 11th graders will be processed and the results distributed accordingly.)
The College Board has postponed face-to-face AP exams for 2019-2020. They continue working on an alternate at-home exam so that students can still earn college credit and placement. Specific details will be provided by the CHS Counseling Office once they are finalized. For more information on AP testing, visit: AP College Board Updates (last known updates were made on March 20, 2020).

The status of Spring MAP testing is pending based on our “return to school” date.
Student Services Team
Director of Student Services & Special Education, Ted Noll
This week the CHS Student Services team began offering students in 9-12th grades the opportunity to request virtual check-ins. Topics can range from academic questions, college/career planning, or social/emotional concerns. During virtual counseling sessions, school counselors/psychologists will adhere to the same ethical guidelines they would in a school-based setting. 

This service is not intended for emergency situations. If you or someone you know are in danger you should call 911.  If you have any questions about this or would like to request a meeting, please reach out to a member of our student services team.

Navigating through the COVID-19 crisis continues to be a challenge for us all, but it is so very important that each and every one of us continue to play an active role in limiting the spread of infection.

The number of COVID-19 cases continue to rise on a daily basis, and are projected to continue to do so for some time. Please remember to follow the CDC guidelines of social distancing, frequent handwashing, and limiting your interactions with others as you go about your day. 

In addition, when needing to go to the store for any essential items such as groceries or medications, please follow the tips listed here as recommended by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
