CSD Health & Wellness Planning, 2021-2022

Last Updated: 8/31/2021 8:33 PM

(Revised; 08/05/2021)

The Chequamegon School District is planning for the 2021-2022 school year with the goal that all students will attend school with five days of in-person instruction each week following a normal school calendar. Realizing families have questions concerning the upcoming school year, we have presented questions and answers below based on information available at this time. 


These plans may change based on the number of local positive COVID cases, the prevalence of new COVID variants, the rate of vaccination in our community, and revised guidance from federal, state, and local health officials. To keep our families apprised of plans for the 2021-2022 school year, this webpage will be updated as new information becomes available and we will send monthly updates to families. As we near the start of the 2021-22 school year, each school will reach out to families with back-to-school information specific to building grade levels.

A: A person is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after having received the second of two doses or the first of a one-dose COVID vaccine. Close contact students who are fully vaccinated and are not symptomatic do not have to quarantine.  Vaccinated close contact students who develop symptoms would have to quarantine at home. Unvaccinated students would have to quarantine after a close contact regardless of symptom status.

A: Volunteers and visitors will be admitted by appointment or on an invitation-only basis.

A: The District will closely monitor the spread of COVID in our community and within our schools and adjust the mode of instruction as needed. This could include blended or a fully-virtual model.

A: CSD will continue to monitor COVID cases and continue to work with the State and Local County Health Departments.  If it becomes necessary for our schools to return to standard COVID mitigation protocols, the District may return to social distancing, cohorting, masking, alternate schedules, virtual programming or short-term closures.  All mitigation measures will be reviewed for a length of time and the goal will be to return to the least restrictive learning environment as soon as it’s deemed safe for all students.

 

 

  SCHOOL DAYS FAQs  

 

A: If the District is in the in-person phase, there will not be a live stream option.

A: No. All schools will return to their standard pre-COVID start and end times. Check the CSD website for the 2021-2022 school year start and end times that apply to your child’s grade level or campus.

A: CSD teachers will ensure lessons and materials are provided for students who must remain at home consistent using pre-COVID methods. This may vary based on student age and school subject. 

A:  Yes, breakfast and lunch will be provided free at both campuses.  Extras will continue to cost money at school board approved rates.  Even with the federal government subsidizing meals again for the coming school year, it is still important that families who qualify for Free or Reduced Meals complete the necessary paperwork. This information is also used for other funding sources our District receives or funding it may apply for during the school year.

A: Schools will offer parents the opportunity to participate either in-person or virtually.

A: Yes, students will perform in class as they would during a normal year. CSD will continue to monitor COVID suggested protocols and make adjustments to this policy if needed.

A: Yes. We hope to start the school year with as many opportunities as possible. We are confident local field trips can be attended safely. Trips involving more complex travel may require adjustments and/or alternatives.
