In Place of Traditional Snow Days

Earlier this week you received a message from the WSD with regard to our plans for Inclement Weather Days. The message can be read by clicking on the button following this text section.


Here are a few additional specifics as related to Stettin:

*We will do our best to be proactive should inclement weather be predicted and send home all necessary materials including student iPads and classroom materials. This is also why we will be sending student iPads home on a daily basis for all students.


*All students should plan to attend a classroom google meet at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Each google meet will last approximately 15 minutes. Google meet codes for each classroom will be shared through your class Seesaw.


*During the live google meet, classroom teachers will check in with students, explain the learning activities that students will be completing for the day and answer any questions that there may be.


*Each grade level will be assigned one encore activity through Seesaw. The grade level the child is in will determine what encore activity will be assigned. This activity will be something that students can complete on their own and should take about 15-20 minutes to complete.


*Depending on the child’s grade level additional learning activities will be assigned by the classroom teacher that a child should complete asynchronously/independently during the day. For K-2 this will be approximately an additional 15 minutes and for grades 3-5 this will be about 75 additional minutes.


*We understand that on inclement weather days, internet connections may not always be working. Please do your best to connect to the google meet, when possible. Also, if you are in need of a hot spot, you may check one out through our library. Please contact Ms. Gaskey, our librarian for more information.

WSD GIFTED & TALENTED STUDENT NOMINATION PROCESS

Nominations are now being accepted from parents and teachers of second through fifth grade students in need of gifted and talented evaluations. Parents and teachers are welcome to nominate students who are currently achieving at a high level in mathematics and/or reading, approximately at the top 5% of the class. Please note, students cannot be tested in consecutive years. Teachers have already nominated some students for these evaluations. If you have already completed a Permission to Evaluate for Gifted and Talented Identification Form, no further steps need to be taken. Students who are already identified as gifted and talented do not need to be re-evaluated.


Parents whose second through fifth grade child has not been previously nominated as gifted and talented and who feel that they have a high achieving child may pick up a Permission to Evaluate for Gifted and Talented Identification Form with the Parent Inventory Form on the back from the school office. Nominations from parents are due by January 14, 2022.


When the completed parent forms are returned to the school office, each student will be scheduled for several assessments. These will be done sometime during the school day. These assessments, along with other test data, will provide the district with a student profile. This profile will help determine whether or not a child meets the District’s guidelines for gifted and talented identification. The assessment review is expected to be completed in May and the results will be shared before the end of the school year.


The Wausau School District recognizes that appropriate instructional challenge is needed for all students regardless of ability. The GT identification process is one way to help us provide for the educational needs of high ability students. Should you need further information, please contact your building’s GT Learning Resource Teacher or Tammy Steckbauer, Coordinator for Gifted and Talented, at 715-261-0220.

WAUSAU SCHOOL DISTRICT

PROCESO DE NOMINACION DE ESTUDIANTES DOTADOS Y TALENTOSOS


Las nominaciones por parte de padres y maestros de estudiantes de segundo a quinto grado que necesitan evaluaciones de dotados y talentosos están siendo aceptadas. Padres y maestros están invitados a nominar a estudiantes que están rindiendo a un alto nivel en matemáticas y / o lectura, y que están aproximadamente en el 5% superior de la clase. Tenga en cuenta que los estudiantes no pueden ser evaluados en años consecutivos.

Los profesores ya han nombrado a algunos estudiantes para estas evaluaciones. Si ya ha completado un Permiso para Evaluar o Forma de Identificación de Dotados y Talentosos, no hay otra cosa que deba hacer. . Los estudiantes que ya han sido identificados como dotados y talentosos no tienen que ser re-evaluados .


Los padres de niños de segundo a quinto grado que no han sido nominado previamente como dotados y talentosos y que sienten que tienen un niño con alto rendimiento puede recoger un Permiso para Evaluar o Forma de Identificación de Dotados y Talentosos con el Formulario de Inventario de los Padres en la parte posterior en la oficina de la escuela. Las nominaciones de los padres deben ser entregadas antes del 14 de enero de 2022.


Cuando los formularios completados se hayan devuelto a la oficina de la escuela, cada estudiante será programado para varias evaluaciones. Estos se llevarán a cabo en cualquier momento durante el día escolar. Estas evaluaciones, junto con otros datos de prueba, proporcionarán al distrito un perfil del estudiante . Este perfil le ayudará a determinar si un niño cumple con las normas del Distrito para la Identificación de Dotados y Talentosos. Se espera que la revisión de la evaluación se complete en Mayo y estos resultados se harán saber antes de que finalice el año escolar.


El Distrito Escolar de Wausau reconoce que son necesarios desafíos educacionales apropiados para todos los estudiantes independientemente de sus capacidades. El proceso de identificación de GT (Dotados y Talentosos) es una manera de ayudarnos a prever las necesidades educativas de los alumnos de alta capacidad. Si necesita más información, por favor póngase en contacto con el maestro de Recursos de Aprendizaje GT (Dotados y Talentosos) de su edificio o Tammy Steckbauer, Coordinadora de Dotados y Talentosos, al 715-261-0220.

COVID-19 Testing - an Option for WSD Families

The Wausau School District is now offering free PCR COVID-19 testing to all students, staff, and even their immediate family members.


Testing is now available, on a limited basis in a mobile unit. Below you will find a schedule that shows where the unit will be and when. Then, starting closer to December, ‘Wellness Cottages’ will open up on each school campus in the District, where that testing will be done. The cottages are currently being built.


Everyone who would like to receive that free test must fill out a consent form. The consent form for students is available below, it’s also available on our website.


It’s imperative that you know the District will not test students without parental consent. Instructions for registering your child to receive testing are below. Once parents and guardians fill out the consent form, they must return it to their child(ren)’s school.


All staff and immediate family members of students and staff who would like to receive that free testing, will give consent either at the mobile unit or at the Wellness Cottages when they open up.


You should also know this is all being done at absolutely no cost to the Wausau School District. In fact, the Department of Health Services is paying for it all -- including the testing of students, staff, and their immediate family members, along with paying for the staff who will administer the tests, the mobile unit, and the construction of the Wellness Cottages.
