What's News at Magee?
September 4, 2020 - Important Updates
First Week and Soft Start
We look forward to next week and having all of our face to face learners in the building! We have tweaked some procedures, so please be patient with us as we work through things at 100% next week!
Have a great holiday weekend!
AM Drop Off
Students may not be dropped off early and wait in the lobby or in front of the school. Please walk students over at the 8:15am bell or drive through car drop off.
Please remember to drive SLOWLY when going around the school. There are a few blind corners and we want everyone to stay safe.
After School Pick Up Updates
A staff member will be at the back of the school (E1) entering family names into a spreadsheet. Please have your car tag ready to be seen. Please email Mrs. Doome (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need more tags.
We will also begin dismissing car pick up students at 3:15 PM. Pick up will be a window of time from 3:15PM-until finished, which we hope to be by 3:45PM. These adjustments make a positive impact on our traffic flow and hopefully avoid back ups on to Hwy. 83. We will have 100+ cars in our pick up line each day, the need to be both accurate and efficient is paramount.
THANK YOU for your cooperation and understanding!

The "Normal" of 20-21 - Quarantine
We are excited to welcome your children to their learning environment, whether face-to-face or distance learning, for the coming year. We know this year already looks and feels different, beginning with our Soft Start for K-5 and a bevy of safety precautions we have implemented. But, it is still the first day and first week of school. And, for some students and teachers, it will be their first-ever experiences in Kettle Moraine School District. We have worked extremely hard to prepare for this week and the months ahead - we cannot wait to see our students!
There are several mitigation strategies we have in place to help slow the spread of the virus and keep our schools open. Quarantine is one of those mitigation strategies. It is used to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. People who have close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19 or who have potential COVID-19 symptoms are quarantined as a precautionary measure. We expect quarantining, whether it’s a student or staff member, will happen intermittently throughout the school year.
If your child’s teacher becomes quarantined, she/he will be teaching remotely using Google Meet until the quarantine expires. If your child is in face-to-face learning, there will be a guest teacher to facilitate instruction and classroom management during the quarantine period. We are being very cautious to ensure we are keeping our schools open to the greatest extent possible. Thank you for your understanding.
THANK YOU! The better we are at this mitigation strategy, the safer we all are in the building.
