HLWW COVID-19 Update - 9-17-2021

As we did last year, we will share the following information about student and staff totals:

               POS – positive cases

               DTI – due to illness – specific to possible COVID-19 cases

               DTQ – due to quarantine – specific to households

Here is our information for 9/17/2021

               - Weekly Cases by Zip Code (3 zip code total – HL, Wav, Win) – 29

               - HLWW PreK-12 - Students

                              POS –  6

                              DTI – 0

                              DTQ - 6

               - HLWW PreK-12 - Staff

                              POS – 3

                              DTI – 0

                              DTQ - 1

We appreciate all of the parent support our health office staff has been given.  We understand and want to work with families as much as possible as we also navigate things like allergies, colds, stomach viruses, strep throat, etc.  We want to remind everyone that the best way to handle possible cases is to remember to “stay home” if you or your child is sick.

HLWW E-Learning Day Plan - Posted 9-14-2021

The District E-Learning Day Plan has been posted to our website. It was approved by the HLWW School Board.

E-Learning Days will be used when there is inclement weather and the decision must be made to close school for the day.

The plan includes a shortened schedule for Grades 5-12, allowing teachers to have the time to get materials and plans ready, before students begin their on-line instruction.

The plan also includes instructions for Grades K-4 in regards to choice boards and opportunities on ways for students and parents to connect with their child's teacher(s).

If you have any questions about our E-Learning Day Plan, I would encourage you to reach out to your child's principal for further clarification.

HLWW Safe Return to Learn Plan - Student Guidance - 2021-22

We hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer vacation.  As you know, school will be starting soon (August 30)!  We look forward to welcoming the students and staff back to school!

Please be on the lookout for additional information in the next few weeks from your child’s principal.

The back to school packet was recently emailed out to all parents and is posted on our website.

Today we posted the school board approved Safe Return to Learn Plan – Student Guidance, for the 2021-22 school year.

We ask that everyone review the plan and reach out to your child’s principal if you have questions.

There are many changes in our plan when you compare it to last year, so we would like to highlight a few of the most notable:

- Face coverings are recommended for K-12 students for indoors, but not required.  As a family, please discuss what you would like your child to do when it comes to face coverings.

- Face coverings are required on school transportation.  In consideration of the CDC requirement, as well as knowing that we are returning to a one-route system which means busses will be closer to capacity, with multiple grade levels combined, this requirement was made part of our plan.

- Close contacts will be traced by school staff, and parents of close contacts will be contacted, but they will not be required to quarantine.

- Entire families will not be required to quarantine if one child is sent home due to symptoms; however, if more than one child in a family has symptoms, a quarantine may be required as per the health office staff.

- 3 feet of social distancing will be used as much as space provides within the classroom setting.  Other spaces will continue to be evaluated and there may be some social distancing used in other locations, as space provides, while still allowing students flexibility.

This plan is subject to potential change based on guidance we receive from health officials and based on what we are experiencing in our school or community.  Major changes will be discussed with our COVID-19 Council and the school board.  We will continue to be diligent about the monitoring of cases and are in constant contact with other schools in our area and county health officials.

We want to thank all of our families for their continued support as we work through the COVID recommendations and guidance.

Again, please reach out to your child’s principal if you have questions about our plan.

Have a great rest of the summer!  We look forward to a great 2021-22 school year!
