Summer School & Other Activities

Summer Programs

Congratulations to everyone for persevering and getting to the end of the 2019-2020 school year! Who would have imagined back in September that we would have ended in this way? The following information provides you with details on our summer programming. While we intend to provide the same high quality and engaging experience that you have all come to expect, there are changes that we have put into place that focus on reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19. Please take the time to read through the expectations for students and staff who plan to attend face-to-face classes or activities. We all must work together for the health and well-being of everyone.


Health and Safety For All

This information may change based on guidance from state and local health agencies and the WI Department of Public Instruction.

  • Health and Safety For All
  • This information may change based on guidance from state and local health agencies and the WI Department of Public Instruction.
    • Anyone with symptoms related to COVID-19 will not be allowed into the school. Symptoms include:
      • Cough (new onset or worsening of chronic cough)
      • Shortness of breath
      • Fever over 100
      • Chills
      • Sore throat
      • Runny nose
      • Muscle pain
      • Headache
      • New loss of taste or smell

    Not everyone with COVID-19 has all these symptoms. For many, symptoms are mild, with no fever. Some people may also experience fatigue or gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or abdominal pain. You can still spread the virus to others even if you have mild or no symptoms. 

    • If your child becomes ill while at school, you will be asked to pick-up your child within one hour of being contacted. Please have plans in place to ensure you or a designated person is available if this should occur.
    • Children who are ill will not be able to return to school until 72 hours after their symptoms stop (without the use of fever reducing medication). Parents should consider contacting their healthcare provider to determine if your child should be tested for COVID-19.  
    • Positive Test Result: If an individual is diagnosed with COVID-19, they must remain out of the program/school for a minimum of 10 days from the onset of symptoms or from the notification of a positive test result if asymptomatic. The following conditions must also be met in order to return:
      • Individual must be 3 days beyond symptoms and no fever (without using fever reducing medication). For example, if you are at day 9 and still have a fever, you will not be able to return to school until you are three days fever free. 
      • Depending on your healthcare provider’s advice and availability of testing, you may be asked to get tested to see if you still have COVID-19.
    • Symptoms without Test: If the individual is not using a COVID-19 test and has reason to believe they were exposed, and have a fever or other COVID-19 like symptoms, they must remain out of the program/school for a minimum of 10 days from the onset of symptoms. The following conditions must also be met in order to return::
      • Individual must be 3 days without symptoms and no fever (without using fever reducing medication). For example, if you are at day 9 and still have a fever, you will not be able to return to school until you are three days fever free.
      • Depending on your healthcare provider’s advice and availability of testing, you may be asked to get tested to see if you still have COVID-19.
    • Close Contact with Positive Case: If an individual believes he/she had close contact with someone with COVID-19 but is not currently sick, they should monitor for fever, cough, and shortness of breath. The level of risk will be assessed and quarantine for 14 days for some individuals may be required. 
    • A confirmed case of COVID-19 may require closure of all or a portion of the School District’s summer programming. We will be working in coordination with St. Croix Public Health to determine actions we will need to take. Closures will depend on the nature of exposure risk. 
    • We will notify families of any confirmed staff or child COVID-19 cases.
