Band/Choir update

During the first month of school Mr. Peters is going to be scheduling a music instrument rental night (if it's possible). Last spring we didn't have enough time to teach kids about all the different instruments and how they work, so we are going to be doing that for the first few weeks.

Many things are still up in the air at this time, but as decisions are made and obstacles are overcome, I will keep you updated as much as possible.

Keep you eyes peeled for our 2020-2021 Virtual Open House

Will be published Next week. August 27th

Looking for new vice president and everyone is welcome.

Nurse Notes


My name is Jessica Hager and I am the School Nurse and 504 Coordinator for Cadott Community Schools. I am entering my 6th year as the school nurse. I love our community and all of the students I get to work with! It is my job to help take care of and advocate for children’s physical and mental health.

I have four children that attend the Cadott Schools ranging from 4K to 7th grade. We love attending Cadott Sporting events, playing sports, going for walks, swimming, boating and reading. I also enjoy the occasional nap! I always tell kids it is important to get enough sleep!

I am so excited to see all of you September 1st for our 1st Day of School! I know that this year will look a little different than it has in past years. We may be wearing masks during certain times, we may be playing in different areas of the playground, we may get to eat lunch in the gym or our classroom and you will hear A LOT about handwashing and ways we can stay healthy.

It is my belief that we need to take care of the whole child. Which means I care about their physical and mental health. I want to encourage them to make healthy choices (Physical activity, healthy eating, hand washing, not touching our face (eyes, nose and mouth). I also know that EVERY child is different. I believe firmly that what works for one child may not work for another and we need to make sure that we provide care for that child as an individual.

I want families to be aware that they can come to me if there are health concerns about their child. I will advocate for your children so that they have what they need to be healthy in school. I love the saying “Healthy Children Learn Better”.

I will be sharing a lot of information and resources as we start school, but I would say the number one take home message I would like every family to get is that we should not be sending our students to school if they are not feeling well. We will be asking families to check their kids before they go to school.


All parents/guardians of students attending school will be advised to complete a daily health screening at home every morning before sending their child to school. The health screening should include temperature screening (parents are encouraged to use a thermometer), and the following guidelines:

Any one of the following symptoms:

  • Does your child have a temperature over 100.4 Fahrenheit within the last 24 hours

  • Cough- new or worsening

  • Diarrhea or vomiting

Any two or more of the following symptoms:

  • Chills

  • Headache

  • Muscle pain

  • Nausea

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Shivering

  • Sore throat

  • Runny nose/congestion

  • Unusual fatigue

Here is a great article about talking to your children (geared toward our elementary kids) about COVID:

Once this has been completed, please have student return form to Mrs. Zais

After school activities

Usually this would have been done long ago but with all the craziness going on we are just starting to get organized. Attached you will find the registration form for football. We will not be requiring payment at this time but we will need you to fill out this form and send it back to me by 8/23/2020. We need to get a list of players so we can start organizing our league decisions and start preparing equipment and the like.

Couple of things of note:

  1. 5th and 6th graders have the option of noting if they want to play flag football or tackle. Traditionally it has only been tackle but there has been some interest in the flag option so if you sign up your 5th or 6th grader, please note either tackle or flag. I will also keep an eye out for this as well.
  2. This is not being sent through the school so I need everyone to share this email and the registration form. I know I have missed people on my list so please send this on to any parents that you know of that may be interested in having their child participate in football.
  3. Please make sure you volunteer to help if you can, especially at the K-4th grade levels. We need coaches and the more we can keep the kids organized and busy, the better!

I am excited and hopeful that we will get the season in, I am pretty sure the kids are excited to play based on the few interactions I have had with them over the past few months. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns and I am always here willing to try to answer any questions you might have. Please remember to fill out the registration as soon as possible!

Thank you all!
