During Black History Month staff and students have taken the opportunity to research and share about black history. Learning about the world from different perspectives is bringing great conversations to our classrooms and hopefully to your homes too!

Distance Learning - When does it happen?

This year has brought distance learning into our vocabulary and daily life. It is, however, not something that is offered every day as a choice. Distance learning is available to learners in two ways - the first is that a family chooses for their child to be a distance learner and thus has a teacher dedicated to distance learning; the second is that a face to face child is home for Covid related reasons (illness, quarantine).

Our learners do still get sick with things that are not Covid. In those instances, we handle things the same way we have in the past. Learners stay home, rest, recover and return to school when they are well. Learners and teachers in face to face environments utilize face to face instruction and learning unless a learner is home for Covid reasons and then the learner can log in to the classroom and continue instruction with his/her classmates. This is an added layer in the classroom that is not available on a daily basis unless a child is quarantined. Distance learning is not an option/choice on a daily basis and it also not an option when a child is on vacation.

Thank you for your understanding and support of these differences. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Sterner with any questions.

Please remind students that toys and Pokemon cards should stay
at home. We would hate for things to get lost or broken at school and there is really not time to play with toys from home or to trade cards. Thank you for your support!
COVID-19 Testing Clarification - from Nursing Staff

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.
