    The School Board was elected to make certain the desires of the community are being met.

·         We’ve been given the go-ahead on safely reopening by the Watertown Health Department.

·         Other schools surrounding us are opening with face-to-face operations and safety protocols in place.

·         The virus has a zero percent death rate in kids under 19 in Wisconsin.

·         Those who want virtual only would still have that option. But those who want in person, full or blended, would then also have an option.

Revisiting this month to month, with the next vote not taking place until September 25th, is unacceptable and we’re requesting the following:

An emergency Board Meeting, that is publicized to all parents via email, a phone call, and social media with a date, time, and goals that are specific to the measures needed to reopen schools in September

·         2020, either on September 1st or with a slight delayed opening (such as 15 days at most) if time is needed to get safety measures in place

·         A specific, reasonable list of criteria that the School Board needs met that is similar to other schools reopening for face-to-face instruction, in checklist form, that can be checked off one by one as each is accomplished

·         A project plan with deadlines and tasks that people will be held accountable for that is made readily available to all parents.

·         A team researching what other schools our size (Kettle Moraine/Oconomowoc/Janesville) are doing to accomplish face to face in September and a plan to mirror those plans

·         A WHAT WE CAN DO plan (versus what we can’t do) to whatever it is that is keeping our kids held back from in-person learning

·         A comprehensive description of what the "new" virtual-learning platform looks like, because we are requesting this is done exactly like regular school…with class periods, teachers live-streaming their classes, answering questions during those class periods, and mirroring exactly what they’d do in the classroom. If we then have a face-to-face and virtual model, students will all be on the same page.

We’re all aware that we’re in the middle of a pandemic. We all want to protect our children. We all want the best learning opportunities for every one of our children. We understand that not everyone is ready to send their kids back to school. We also understand that many ARE ready. Keeping this in mind, we are requesting you give parents a choice of both in-person and virtual options.

Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to hearing from you on this urgent matter.
