General Information

Upcoming Dates

October 12-23: Conferences

October 23: Date for Virtual Students to choose virtual or in person learning for Quarter 2

November 19: Picture Day

November 25 - 27: Thanksgiving Break


  1. A letter will come home with in person students on Thursday regarding what conferences will look like. This letter will also be emailed to the parents of our virtual learners.
  2. If you didn't return the iPad insurance form this fall a new one is coming home with your child. Because of the strangeness of the start of the year the district is extending the deadline to take this insurance. If you don't want the insurance, please indicate that on the form, sign it, and send it back with your student. We need a signature and an indication from you with your choice. The form and payment needs to be returned before the insurance is active.
  3. If you turned down the insurance at the start of the year and sent the form back but now would like the insurance, please contact Deb in the office and she will send another copy home. The form and payment needs to be returned before the insurance is active.
  4. The High School will be moving to a virtual format for the next several weeks, but this does not impact what happens at Trempealeau Elementary. We will continue with our current plans and schedules until we are directed otherwise. The goal is to make decisions based on each building's situation. Right now we have no positive cases of Covid-19 within our staff or student population at Trempealeau Elementary.
  5. Below in the information from our school nurse is a letter regarding a free Covid testing site at G-E-T MS on September 26th.
  6. One my coworkers, Mrs. Fanta, shared the questions below at her building. I thought they were great. At my house I will sometimes ask both my 6th and 3rd grader how school was and will often only get an, "ok" for a response. I used some of these on my kids and was able to pull out a little more information about their day and how they were feeling. I share them with you to use if you wish:

What was the coolest thing that happened at school today?

Pretend you're the teacher. How would you describe today?

What made you laugh while in school today?

What was the most creative thing you did today?

How were you kind and/or helpful today?

How was someone kind and/or helpful to you today?

Pre-Arranged Absence Form

Use this form when your child will be gone for a day or more. This form does not need to be used for doctors, dentist, or other appointments. Fill out this for vacations and other personal events. It helps us know when a student will be gone.
