Forward Testing Window

KMMS will begin our Wisconsin Forward testing next week. Face to Face students will test with their teachers throughout the next few weeks. Distance families should have arranged a time for their students to come to the building to complete their testing. If you have a distance student, but have not done so, please email or call Mrs. Peterson at 965-6500 ext. 2000.

Forward Testing Tips:

  • Be sure that devices are charged each evening.*
  • Keep earbuds handy for testing.
  • Make every effort to get a good night's rest before test days.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Take time to read instructions and test questions carefully.
  • Do your best work.

*Cell phones and smart watches may not be out during testing sessions. If you need to get a message to your student during school hours, please call the office.

Water Bottles & Hydration at KMMS

Hydration is very important, especially due to our mask protocols. We want our students to bring water bottles and stay hydrated during the school day. We do have water bottle filling stations throughout the school.
Monster type energy drinks do not help with hydration and have caused issues and messes in the building.
Please discourage your students from bringing flavored, sugary and caffeinated beverages to school.
Thank you for your support.

Important Information Regarding COVID Testing
Dear KM Families,
There has been some confusion about PCR vs. antigen testing for COVID-19. 
If a child stays home OR has been sent home with symptoms of COVID-19 and you wish to have them tested, KMSD requires a negative PCR test, which follows the CDC and Waukesha County guidelines for schools. This is for children with symptoms. 
 
Not every doctor’s office automatically does PCR testing. Please verify the type of testing before having it done. 
 
Documented proof of a negative PCR test is required before a child is allowed back in the classroom along with the child being symptom free for at least 24 hours without the use of medication.

Feel free to email your health staff or call the COVID-19 RN or Health Hotline, if you have any questions.
* District COVID-19 RN-Direct line: 262-968-6300, ext. 5334
* KMSD Health Hotline 262-968-6369
(District Nurse, Patricia Schuetz RN & Jenny Pick, RN)
 
Thank you!
