Education at its best.
The mission of the Montello School District, an evolving educational community, is to inspire children to be life-long learners. The community will provide our students with the tools to fulfill their unique potential in a safe and positive environment in a fiscally responsible manner.
COVID-19 Montello Student/Staff/Family Hotline
Thank you for your flexibility and support as we face a new phase of school closure as our Governor has issued a shelter in place order. Due to the fact that schools will be closed for an indefinite period of time, our MSD team is making decisions based on student's health, safety as well as a plan for the continuation of their learning. Here is the essential information you need to begin planning for the extended school closure:
Remote Learning Plan: our staff is developing online learning resources for PK-12 students. We will be deploying student Chromebooks and supplementing online learning with materials mailed/dropped off with students. We will have specific information about this at a later date. We simply would like families to prepare for this mode of learning which will occur after April 3. Several companies, including Spectrum and Bug-Tussel are providing free/discounted internet services. Please call our district technology hotline,(608)218-4410, to receive help to do this.
The materials we already sent/mailed home to students will serve as a way to continue student learning from March 30-April 3.
We know that are many questions about attendance, grading and credit attainment on families minds. We are waiting for better guidance from the Wisconsin Department of Instruction before we develop these parameters.
We also know school-sponsored spring events are a concern for families. We are following WIAA guidelines regarding sports and activities, all of which are postponed for now. We know our seniors, Class of 2020 are especially worried. We will keep you posted as the situation unfolds.
School Nutrition/Food Service Plan: Free breakfast and lunch service will be provided to ANY Montello student. We will have 4 pick-up locations: Buffalo Town Hall, Packwaukee Library, Mecan Lutheran Church, Montello High School Entrance. Lunch will be available for pick-up at 11 a.m. (we will send breakfast home for the next morning with lunch.) Please fill out this google form each week by Friday for the following week so we have an idea of how many meals to prepare. The sack lunches will be handed to you through your passenger window and put on your seat. Students do not need to be present to receive the meals. If you are sick or showing any signs of cold/flu please stay home.
Here are additional resources you may find helpful:
- Montello Schools Hotline: (608)369-2032, please call with general questions and needs. We will point you to the appropriate resource.
- Community Resource List: here is a list of community resources
- Online Resources for Student Enrichment: here is a list of educational websites to support remote learning
There is no manual or guidebook for how to navigate these times. We are humbled by the generous words and offers of support, your patience and genuine caring for our staff over the last couple of weeks. We are taking the best possible care of each other with grace and compassion.
Be well and be safe,
