Message to Hillcrest SDW Virtual Families
The district is still working through the enrollment in Infinite Campus for all families so you will continue to get our email and communication for awhile. At some point, your child's virtual teacher will reach out to introduce themselves and give you more information.
We have the iPads for the virtual 5K students. You are able to pick them up at our Curbside Kickoff Event. Just pull up to the station and give them your child's name. We do not have 4K iPads at this time and may not have them before the event.
We have had families asking about school supplies. My recommendation is to go ahead and purchase the same supplies that are on the Hillcrest list for your grade level. Many of the supplies are similar across the district and your child will have many of the same learning opportunities that our face to face students will have.
Outdoor Picture Day - Thursday, August 27th - By Appointment
School Wide Procedures
We have some new procedures to put into place this year and we appreciate your help in keeping students and staff safe.
Please take time to review the Family Guidebook with your child. This outlines many of the procedures and there are quite a few items that are different this year. Teachers and staff will be teaching learners throughout the first days of school but this helps your child have a preview of their day.
In addition, for your review, is the SDW COVID Mitigations document. We are committed to adhering to the district nurses' guidance on how we adjust our practices to meet CDC and Wisconsin DPI guidance. Our school board is still writing and adopting these practices into policy.
