School Website and Infinite Campus Contact Information
Please check the Read Website frequently for important information, important dates, Read's Family Handbook and more.
Also, it is very important that all families have the most up to date contact information listed in Infinite Campus. With new visitor protocols and an increase in virtual learning, our school staff relies on this information to ensure you are receiving all the up to date school and classroom information. It is also very important that we can reach you quickly if your student is sick or there is an emergency.
COVID DATA AND SYMPTOMS
In an effort to still track return to school dates for students as well as track accurate data for Winnebago county, we would like you to continue to notify your student's school when they have symptoms, have tested positive or have been a close contact/household contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID.
Please either Call or Email:
The school Office 920-424-0172 firstname.lastname@example.org
School Nurse 920-424-0172 ext. 2203 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
FROM THE SCHOOL NURSE
I am so excited to hear students’ voices and see their faces in our buildings again starting January 11th. I am hoping that you had a good break from all things “school-related” over the holidays and are ready to get back into the swing of things.
Here are some things your school nurse is asking you to do to help us return to school as safe as possible:
Notify me if you are currently under quarantine or isolation (email@example.com)
Continue to monitor your student’s health by using the OASD Student Daily Health Screen
If you are able to answer “yes” to any of the questions, DO NOT send your child or their siblings to school. Please notify the school that your child and siblings will be absent and state the reason for staying home.
We will call you to determine a return to school date. This is a new part of our job this year that can feel very invasive. We have to call and ask questions regarding your child’s health. Your cooperation will help us to follow the guidelines and continue to keep the doors open for in person learning.
Don't send your child to school if anyone in your house:
is waiting for covid test results
has a positive test result
is having symptoms consistent with covid.
Update your Infinite Campus contact information so we can get a hold of you if your children need to be picked up from school. If you can not do it yourself, please contact your school’s front office.
Understand our team of covid contact tracers are following protocol from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Winnebago County Public Health Department. We follow these protocols to keep your children and the staff in our schools as safe as possible during a pandemic.
If you have questions or concerns please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is the parent's responsibility to take attendance (instructions below) on their child's virtual learning days.
-If you do take attendance, it will be recorded as present and nothing will show up on your child's attendance tab.
-If you forget to take attendance, it will automatically change to "XDLD" (exempt digital learning day-virtual learning not verified) at 11:59 PM.
-The system does not allow our office to make any changes to your child's virtual day attendance. Only the parent can check them in and if you forget, the XDLD will remain on your child's attendance.
