Safer at Home

Hadfield Families,

Yesterday, Wisconsin’s Safer at Home order was extended to May 26th and all schools closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. I understand this is sad news for everyone, myself and our staff members included. We were certainly hopeful that we would be able to finish the year with students, but understand that the health and safety of everyone takes precedence.

At-home and virtual learning that we have implemented in the school district and at Hadfield will continue for the remainder of the school year. Our school and district teams will be working on staff and student access to Hadfield to retrieve items, the fate of summer school, and more. As decisions are made, we will share them with you.

As previously mentioned, we are encouraging families to do as much and the best they can with the assigned school work, and to maintain regular communication with school staff. This helps us plan and create lessons and materials that best support students and families.

As a reminder, school lunch & breakfast pick-ups will continue throughout the 2019-2020 school year, Mondays through Fridays from 12:00 - 1:00 at Hadfield.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding!

Stay well,

Mr. Busch

Weekly STAY WELL Tip from Mrs. Gosling

Spend time outside - take a walk through your neighborhood, sit outside and feel the sunshine on your face, or play a simple “scavenger hunt” with your family in your yard or at a park. Spending time outdoors is a natural stress reliever that will leave you feeling calmer and ready to take on the day!

Student Attendance During School Closure

Families, daily attendance is taken each day during our school closure / at home learning. We take attendance to monitor student engagement and gauge how we can best support learning from home.

Attendance is based on student participation and/or contact with the teacher. A few examples would include:

  • Student activity in online applications, such as Dreambox, or RazKids

  • Interactions on WebEx, or Google Classroom

  • Submission of student work via Google Classroom or other modes

  • Parent contacts via email, phone call or message

Internet Access

Here are some resources being offered across the country, depending on your provider:

Spectrum: Will offer free access to broadband for 60 days to households with K-12 and / or college students. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.

AT&T: Removing data caps associated with their wireless and wired connections (see “Customer Offers”)

Comcast: Increases access and speeds to their Internet Essentials Program ($10 / month broadband); new families get 60 days free.

Utilities temporarily can’t be disconnected: “the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) directed water, electric, and natural gas utilities to cease disconnecting residential service for nonpayment until the state public health emergency has been lifted. Additionally, utilities must make reasonable attempts to reconnect service to an occupied dwelling that has been disconnected.”
