Coronavirus Update for Families
March 26, 2020
End of Spring Break - Continuation of Digital Learning Resumes Monday
Monday, March 30, our Digital Learning Days resume. Click here to review our Digital Learning Days Guide for Families.
We continue to review our Digital Learning practices and will make adjustments to our delivery as needed.
Schools Remain Closed Indefinitely, Including District Office
On Tuesday, Governor Evers issued a Safer at Home order for Wisconsin. This order closes all schools until April 24, unless the governor lifts the order earlier. Due to this order, the district office and all school grounds will be closed until April 24 as well.
Furthermore, the Governor's order requires that all K-12 buildings be closed to extracurricular and co-curricular activities, athletics, club and youth sports, etc. The spring sports season is suspended indefinitely. This includes all workouts, tryouts, practices, and competitions, both on-site and off-site. Teams cannot formally, or informally, meet or assemble during the closure. This also includes captain’s practices and/or informal team meetings.
All state-required student assessments for the remainder of the year have been canceled. Further information about Advanced Placement testing will be sent to families shortly.
No decisions have been made regarding prom or graduation at this time.
Finally, once a return to school date is established, we will provide information about refunds for things like field trips, athletic fees, and other items.
During this closure, the Mukwonago Area School District will not be taking formal attendance as suggested from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, but instead will observe engagement in weekly learning activities that are assigned by their teachers so we can monitor our students’ well-being and provide assistance to families in need. Please know that our purpose in monitoring engagement is purely about taking care of our students and their families during this time, not maintaining records or holding families accountable.
Evidence of engagement can include turning in assignments, completing assessments, student responses (either online or via email), or other communication between the student and the teacher.
When students have not engaged over the course of a week, teachers or other school staff will reach out to families to check on the student’s well-being and capacity to access digital learning so we can provide whatever assistance is necessary for our families.
Should a child need to miss their digital learning experiences for a period of time, please communicate with your child’s teacher(s).
If you would like to talk to the district nurse, Noel Menghe, please call 262-363-6292 ext. 27515. This number will be monitored for messages during the closure.
Free Meals Available to MASD Children During School Closure
Free meals are available to all MASD children aged 18 and under during the school closure. Beginning Monday, March 30, breakfasts will be included in our bag lunches. When you pick up your child’s lunch, breakfast for the following day will be included.
Curbside pickup is available at Prairie View Elementary (south entrance), Big Bend Elementary (main entrance), and Mukwonago High School (east side of the building, near the loading docks). All locations are open from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm on Monday-Friday.
Due to the Governor's social distancing requirement, we will no longer drop the bags into your car. Lunch and breakfast bags will be placed on a table. Once the food server has backed away at least six feet, you may get out of your car and take your bags.
If you have a crucial need for delivery to your house during this time, please fill out this form and arrangements will be made for delivery to occur.

Families without devices or Internet access
K-6 students or families needing Chromebooks and charging cords or families who do not otherwise have Internet access and need a wifi hotspot can still arrange a pick-up. Please complete this Google Form and a district employee will contact you to make arrangements.
Chromebooks for K-6 students are still limited to one per family at this time and wifi hotspot priority is given to families who receive free or reduced-price lunches. Hotspots are limited to one per family.
What if my child needs a book or other materials from school?
If your child needs to retrieve any materials from their locker or desk, please contact your school's administrative assistant. Be sure to provide your child’s name, what materials are needed, and specifically where the materials are located (i.e. desk, locker, etc.).
