Cadott extends at-home learning to another week


After taking a two-week “break,” the Cadott School District had high hopes they could return to in-person learning Nov. 16, but those hopes were dashed Nov. 13, as the schools are still facing staffing issues, because of COVID-19. The district is unable to provide instruction to students in the building.

The current virtual instructional model will run for an additional week, Nov. 16-20.

“These are some tough decisions and tough times,” said superintendent Jenny Starck.

Because this is a staffing concern, at this time, extracurricular activities are able to continue, if a student-athlete wishes to participate. If a special education student is receiving services, those services would continue, unless notified differently.

If people are picking up lunches at the high school, they will be kept on the list for the week, unless notified differently. As a reminder, this is for any student in 4K-12 and the meals are distributed at the high school commons.

An additional piece for the extra virtual learning, will be for students in grades three through 12 who have internet access difficulties, to come into their respective building from 1-3 p.m., for work time to have high speed access.

“There would not be teacher instruction at this time,” said Starck. “We are not able to provide transportation at this time for that access.”

Students should bring all their learning materials and headphones. They will be expected to wear masks and sit spread out. Junior/senior high students will report to the commons, while elementary students will follow the dropoff procedures and go to door 1W, by the west parking lot.

“I understand this is short notice for some families,” said Starck. “The numbers and circumstances change very quickly in this situation.”
