Woodfield's Parent Newsletter

Summer 2020 - Woodfield Elementary

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

As we enter the summer months I want to thank you for your patience and flexibility this past school year. The 2019-2020 school year held many changes and challenges, beginning with the realignment of elementary boundaries lines with significant impact on Woodfield, our current 5th/6th graders are on their way to a NEWLY constructed Fox River Middle School, and lets not forget the World Health Crisis of Covid-19 that impacted how instruction was delivered.


As we begin to prepare for the 20-21 school year, we will continue to keep you updated on how the WGSD will stay within the CDC's and the State of Wisconsin's Health Department regulations for social distancing in schools. Our highest priority is the safety of our students and staff.


Have restful and relaxing summer!


Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or comments over the summer.

WGSD Virtual Grading Parent Communication

With our continued online learning due to COVID-19 we would like to update our grading

expectations for the year. At the end of the school year, the grade marks of P* for Pass, I* for

Incomplete and E* for Excused will be used for reporting in Skyward. The gradebook will

temporarily close to students and parents on Thursday, May 21st to Wednesday, May 28th.

This will allow for any last changes within Skyward to occur. If you have any concerns or

questions about your child’s grade please feel free and reach out to your child’s teacher.

As a community, it has been truly impressive to see the responsiveness and resilience that our

students, staff and families have portrayed during these unprecedented times. Everyone is

balancing family, career and children’s needs. Very remarkable. Thank you!

We are planning materials return days the week of June 2-4 from 7am-6pm each day at Evergreen Elementary. Staff will be on hand to assist families, and the process will be handled in a curbside drop-off manner as the school buildings are officially closed until June 30th.

We have set up 2 days for families to come through our car pick up line just like they did for student materials pick up. Yearbooks will be available (if purchased), the PTO provided commemorative t-shirts (5th/6th graders), you can drop off classroom borrowed materials, or to just swing by and say hello-from a distance.

The PTO covered the cost of the celebration items and we appreciate that very much! We are very proud of our students moving up to the newly remodeled Fox River Middle School.

Free to Families Reading and Math Resources

When the Covid-19 crisis hit in March, many vendors with digital content stepped in to support students with free resources. As we begin to whine down the school year, some parents have asked it they would have access to any of these resources over the summer. I asked our Technology Department to research the sunset for these programs. Please feel free to use these resources as long as you have access.

Social Emotional Resources & Community Resources

We all have had different reactions to the Covid-19 crisis . . . some of us are more anxious, some depressed, angry or frustration during these uncertain times. As as school and district we are committed to supporting the social and emotional health of our students. Please see the resources below and as needed reach out to myself, Julie Voegeli our school counselor or Kim Kloeppel our school social worker.


With these difficult economic times, the Waterford Community has come together to support these in need. Please reference the below Food Pantry's as needed.
