Cadott Elementary Weekly Newsletter

Published Friday, March 13th, 2020



Dear Cadott Parents and Community,

We have continued to work closely with Chippewa County Health Department and monitored updates from the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and Department of Health Services (DHS). As of today, there are still no cases confirmed in Chippewa County or our surrounding counties. We are implementing increased cleaning protocols and modifications in instruction to minimize touching and close contact.

On March 12, 2020 the DHS recommended that any unnecessary gatherings of more than 250 people be cancelled or rescheduled. Based on this recommendation, we are cancelling the music concerts next week at the elementary and secondary level. Music teachers are working on a video recording that we will be able to share. We will consider events sponsored by others on a case-by-case basis. If an event is held and you wish for your child to not participate, you may decline their participation without penalty.

We are not anticipating closing school at this time. The DHS recommendations around gatherings involve outside participants, possibly the elderly, sitting close together for an extended period of time. We have made cleaning and instructional modifications in conjunction with Chippewa County Health recommendations and the CDC to minimize exposure.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. This is an ever evolving issue with frequent updates and we will be responding accordingly. Please watch the banner on our website for the more current information.

Parents: Get Your Children Ready for Coronavirus 2019

You can help protect your family from COVID-19 by practicing and promoting everyday healthy habits. If an outbreak occurs in your community, your school may dismiss students to prevent further spread of the virus. Use this checklist to plan and take action if a COVID-19 outbreak occurs in your community.


Practice and reinforce good prevention habits with your family

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Keep your child at home if sick with any illness

If your child is sick, keep them at home and contact your healthcare provider. Talk with teachers about classroom assignments and activities they can do from home to keep up with their schoolwork.

Be prepared if your child’s school or childcare facility is temporarily dismissed

Talk with your employer about sick leave and telework options in case you need to stay home with your child. Consider planning for alternate childcare arrangements.


Keep track of school dismissal updates

Read or watch local media sources that report school dismissals or stay in touch with your school.

Talk to your school about options for digital and distance learning

Discourage children and teens from gathering in other public places while school is dismissed to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the community

Seek guidance from your school administrator to determine when students and staff should return to schools

Duration of school dismissals will be made on a case-by-case basis based on the most up-to-date information about COVID-19 and the specific situation in your community. Students and staff should be prepared for durations that could last several days. Administrators should work with their local health authorities to determine duration of dismissals.
