Woodfield's Parent Newsletter
Summer 2020 - Woodfield Elementary
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 have established a link with AmazonSmile that allows a portion, of eligible purchases, to come back to our PTO. So if you are an online shopper, this is an easy way to help Woodfield. Feel free to share the link with friends and family as well. Here is the link that will automatically ask you if you want to support Woodfield PTO. Once you make your selection, it is set for future shopping.
