Dear Families, Ever since March 13, the Westby Area School District has been monitoring COVID-19 in our schools, in our communities, and in our county. We feel very fortunate that until recently, we have been able to offer in-person learning for our students despite the increase in confirmed cases in our community. As cases in our communities have increased in the last two weeks, it has become exceptionally difficult to maintain staffing throughout our district. We will transition from our current in-person/hybrid model to virtual/remote learning for all grade levels for a few weeks. Since last spring, we have been planning for this scenario. As with any change, there will still be some obstacles to overcome in the transition. We will begin the virtual/remote learning model for all grade levels on Monday, November 16, 2020, with a plan to return to our preK-6 in-person and 7-12 hybrid model on Monday, December 7, 2020. Some Details: Special Education services will continue in-person based on individual needs starting after 11/16. Case managers will be reaching out with more information. Food delivery will resume starting Tuesday, November 17. Meals are available to all children under 18 at no cost. Please complete this survey if you are interested in signing up for this service. https://forms.gle/DVnFe4HDdxop9BhQ7 If you need internet service, please let us know. Please contact us at 608-634-0101. Sports (including club sports) will not meet from 11/16 - 11/30. On Monday, November 30, our administrative team will meet to determine when and how sports will resume. There are other programs that may offer in-person instruction here at school as well. Individual instructors will be in communication with those students as appropriate. We are taking this action to protect the health and safety of our students, staff, and families. We hope to be able to return to in-person learning in the near future. This will depend on the ability to safely staff our buildings, the status of COVID-19 in our communities, and any guidance we would receive from the County or State Health Departments. Thank you for your efforts to keep our communities safe. Please continue to practice good handwashing, social distancing, and mask wearing. If you know of anyone who is interested in becoming a substitute teacher, custodian, cook, or bus driver, please contact the district office and we will gladly give you more information. 608-634-0101 We look forward to welcoming our students back on December 7th.

Thank you!!! Thank you for the support you have shown our schools for so many years. Our operational referendum passed ensuring that staff and programs (the heart of our educational system) will be maintained. Further, the capital referendum passed allowing us to address safety, security, ADA compliance, and needed maintenance. We are grateful for the support of our communities!!
