As we find ourselves in uncertain times, with news of the spread of COVID-19 changing constantly, you may be wondering what your school should do to reduce risk to your faculty, staff, students, and the communities in which you live and serve.
At this time, we ask you to follow the lead of your local school district. If schools in your district close proactively or because they are directed to close by your state government, your school should close as well.
We’ve included some resources to assist you if you seek to educate your students virtually due to a closure in your area.
Visit Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for community response recommendations and resources.
Visit U.S. Department of Education information and resources for schools and school personnel.
Wisconsin Schools view latest information from the Wisconsin Council of Religious and Independent Schools.
Visit the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families regarding COVID-19. Information is specific to Wisconsin but, can have implications or application to childcare centers in other states. Consult similar sites in your state for recommendations for your area.
