New Berlin CUSD #16 Return to Learning Update

We continue to revise and fine-tune our remote learning plan and hope to have the full plan out early this week to share with our Pretzel Families. In the meantime, I wanted to summarize a few items to help alleviate some questions or concerns that you may have regarding remote learning this fall.


  • Teachers will have a schedule that students will be expected to follow just as on a normal school day. They will log into their classroom site at specific times in order to participate and engage LIVE with their classmates and their teacher. Click Here for a Sample Elementary Schedule
  • Students that are unable to engage during those times will have access to the lessons outside of regular school hours through the classroom site.
  • Students will be able to also have instruction by our specialists (Music/PE/Art/Library) in our remote learning environment.
  • We are planning to hold a Meet the Teacher event in which students and a parent/guardian will be able to meet their teachers and pick up technology/supplies for remote learning. More details will be forthcoming.
  • School Supply lists are being edited to reflect the needs for remote learning and will be posted on the school website and via social media as soon as they are ready. The lists will also include additional items that would be needed for a return to in-person instruction.
  • As plans are updated and revised we will keep you updated.

Specialized Instruction Survey

Parents of students that receive specialized instruction were sent a survey to complete last week. Please complete that survey Monday so that we can begin planning/scheduling students.
