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.




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

School Nurse 920-424-0172 ext. 2203 or


To provide more flexibility for families, conferences this Fall will be held virtually between October 26th and November 6th. Teachers will be using SignupGenius to schedule these virtual sessions with you via Zoom or phone call, at a time that is convenient for you. Please allow 15 minutes for your child's conference. Your child's teacher should have reached out to you with information on how to sign up for a conference. 


Virtual Attendance/Participation

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.

Instructions for taking Virtual Attendance


Password Changes for ALL Students in Grades 3-5

Reminder that ALL grade 3-5 passwords need to be changed by Nov. 6th. As of Nov. 7th students who haven't changed their passwords will not be able to access their account with their old password. (This directive is coming from the Sheriff's department)

Curbside Pick Up & Drop Off

Read is offering Curbside Pick up! Just like the Public Library! Here is how it will work:

Grades 3 through 5, (or Kindergarten through 2nd with a grown ups help) can place a book on hold. Watch this video on “How to Place a Book on Hold”. Once the “Hold” is placed Ms. Bryden will see the hold in Destiny and pull the book off the shelf and then you will receive an email saying the item is ready for pick up.

When can you come and get/ exchange books? 

Starting Nov.3rd pick up will be Tuesdays and Thursdays  from 11-12:00 at Door #1, our Main Entrance.

Ms. Bryden will be ready with any holds you have requested!
