Just a reminder that all staff, students and visitors are required to wear a mask while in the building! Students should bring their own masks everyday until further notice!
We will continue to social distance to the best of our ability and practice hand washing/sanitizing often. In doing so, ALL STUDENTS SHOULD BRING THEIR OWN MASKS TO SCHOOL. The district has a limited supply of masks and we do not have enough to give to students each day.
- Please send extra masks to school with your student in case they lose them or need a replacement.
- Please keep your students home if they are feeling ill.
- Please feel free to contact the Health Office with any questions or concerns at 608-361-3070.
Be in the Know
Are your students reading their emails? Please remind them of the importance of checking their emails daily. Each day your student should be checking their email.. They receive a copy of the Daily Announcements everyday along with receiving Class and Academy emails as information comes available to share with them. It is their responsibility to check their email often.

The Addams Family, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it's every father's nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's "normal" boyfriend and his parents.
