May 21, 2020 – Summer School Age Care Update

Dear School Age Care Families,

At a special meeting of the Board of Education on Tuesday (May 19, 2020), decisions were made to move forward with an altered schedule for Summer School, School Age Care, and outdoor facility use. We look forward to welcoming students back into our schools while enforcing social distancing, hygiene, and cleaning practices. 

Returning to in-person operations will require procedures to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 infections. Administrators have begun this work with guidance from state and local health agencies along with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The School District will work closely with our local public health officials to closely monitor our activities. Our in-person operations may change if St. Croix County Public Health or WI Department of Health Services enact orders that restrict activities due to infection rates and the community’s capacity to respond. 

Summer School Age Care

  • July 6 – Operating at Hudson Prairie and River Crest Elementary Schools. 
  • Each site will be limited to 150 children divided into smaller groups of 50 that will be assigned to different areas of the building and not share space to mitigate risks to kids and staff.

We are quickly working to get logistics together for operating at two sites. We thank you in advance for your patience and will communicate details as soon as we are able.

If you have questions, please email Michelle Hagen at hagenmm@schlossmarihn.com

We look forward to seeing you this summer!
