Note that WisCommunity will not be providing live streams of the school board meetings for the time being since the board is meeting in person and we have decided that we will no longer attend in-person government meetings until the pandemic subsides. We will attempt to capture the live stream provided by the school district and post it here later.

The number of staff excluded has been dropping over the last few weeks. There is a new Safer at Home on-line option for K-8 students, and that is being implemented.

The free meals for kids program continues. Unless there is a big change in circumstances the district's plan is fairly well set until Jan. 22.
