Wisconsin Governor and the CDC want us to be safe!
Earlier this week, Governor Tony Evers signed Executive Order #94 calling for Wisconsin residents to stay home and if you do have to go out, to be extra careful (wear a mask, stay socially distanced, wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, pay attention to symptoms of COVID-19 and avoid crowds, including gatherings with anyone outside of your household).

The COVID-19 pandemic has been stressful and isolating for many people. Gatherings during the upcoming holidays can be an opportunity to reconnect with family and friends. This holiday season, consider how your holiday plans can be modified to reduce the spread of COVID-19 to keep your friends, families, and communities healthy and safe.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 epidemic is worsening, and small household gatherings are an important contributor to the rise in COVID-19 cases. CDC offers the following considerations to slow the spread of COVID-19 during small gatherings. These considerations are meant to supplement—not replace—any state, local, territorial, or tribal health and safety laws, rules, and regulations with which all gatherings must comply.

Considerations for Small Gatherings of Family and Friends
Time to Dress Warm for Chilly Weather

Dean of Students, Ms Weber reminds us that the balmy, unseasonably warm Fall days have left us and now it feels like it should... chilly!

Fresh air and exercise are very important for our students and many of our classrooms are spending more time learning outside, deepening their connections to Mother Earth. For these reasons, students need to be dressed appropriately to enjoy these experiences and to learn.

If you have questions about appropriate outdoor clothing, please let us know. Families who need help sourcing warm coats, hats, boots or mittens, are encouraged to call FRC at (414) 525-6117.
A reminder that one of the best ways to keep your child(ren) healthy, happy and learning strong is to make sure they're well hydrated. Please send them to school with a refillable water bottle — it's also a wonderful way to show respect for Mother Earth!
Governor Tony Evers declared November 7th as Brothertown Indian Nation Day in 2020.
On November 7, 1785, Reverend Samson Occom (Mohegan/ Brothertown) recorded this day as when "Indians who had emigrated from the 7 towns “formed into a body politick”.

Occom tells us that the name that was chosen for the town was Brotherton, or “in Indian, Eeyawquittoowaucconuck”(https://collections.dartmouth.edu/occom/html/diplomatic/785554-diplomatic.html).
