'Tis the season for colds, flu, & sore throats...

Please monitor your child daily for illness. We have many students sick with colds, flu, sore throats, strep, stomach flu, etc. Reminder per the handbook: if they have a fever or stomach issues, please keep them home. They need to be symptom-free (without use of medication) for 24 hours before returning to school. Thank you for your cooperation.

Absence Procedures

If your child is going to be absent:

  1. A parent or guardian must call 262-692-2401, Ext. 200, to report the reason of absence. Voicemail messages may be left 24 hours a day.

  1. For your child’s safety, non-reported absences will be followed up by a call home made by school office personnel.

*When dropping your child off in the morning - please note:

There are two ways to drop your child off in the morning for school:

1. Use the drop off lane in front of school where you can drive through, drop your child off, and continue on your way.

2. Pull into the parking lot and park your car. For safely reasons, you must walk your child across the crosswalk. Elementary children must not walk unattended from the parking lot.

DHS Recommends COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose for Anyone 18 and Older

On November 19, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced our recommendation that everyone ages 18 and older receive a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine following the completion of their primary series. People 18 and older who have received Pfizer or Moderna may get their booster six months after their second dose, and people who have received Johnson & Johnson may get their booster two months after their single dose.

Boosters doses are an important tool in making sure protection against COVID-19 remains high. And, getting a booster dose is easy! You can get it where you received your primary series, or you can go to any other convenient location. Also, booster dose “mixing and matching” is allowed, so you do not need to get the same vaccine type for your booster dose. To find a location near you, visit Vaccines.gov or call 211.

For additional information about booster doses, additional doses, and help accessing your COVID-19 vaccine record to determine when you may be recommended for a booster, visit the DHS Additional Doses and Booster Doses webpage.

Thank You!

Nurse Lori

This information is directly from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services:


Wisconsin children ages 5-11 years old are now eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine requires two doses for full protection and is the first and only vaccine currently available for this age group.

After successful clinical trials and a rigorous review of all available data, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized Pfizer’s request to expand the emergency use authorization (EUA) to include children ages 5-11 on October 29. On November 2, the CDC Director officially confirmed the vaccine is safe and recommended the vaccine to this age group.

To find vaccination locations currently offering the Pfizer pediatric vaccine, go to Vaccines.gov. You can also call 211 for help finding a healthcare provider or a vaccination location.

Parents and guardians can find information they should know about COVID-19 and vaccines for children on the COVID-19: Resources for Parents and Guardians page.
