Dear Families, Although COVID numbers in our county continue to steadily grow, our numbers at school remain low with 2 active cases currently. As we have seen, this can change quickly, but we will strive to give you as much notice as possible should we need to move to a more restrictive learning environment. I'd encourage you to prepare for such a change so that you are ready in case it would happen sooner rather than later. EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES: We are in need of substitute cooks (hours can be very flexible). We are in need of substitute custodians (hours can be very flexible). No prior experience or training is required for either of these positions. We are in need of substitute bus drivers and we will help you get necessary endorsements for your CDL. Please call the district office if you are interested and if you have any questions. 608-634-0101 Referendum Below is a link to a fact sheet that explains the referendum that will be on the ballot on November 3. In a nutshell: Question 1 - maintain people and programs so that we can continue the educational offerings in our district Question 2 - capital improvement projects including safety, security, ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act), HVAC, roofing, water run off, and improvements to our High School Career and Tech Ed learning spaces. Because of retirement of debt and historically low interest rates, we project minimal changes to the 2021 mill rate of $10.90 if these questions are approved. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DrgzOBaeBCCWu79p7_vyq4HqXImDme1B/view?usp=sharing Thank you all, and have a great weekend!
