School update

Hello Falcons!!

Week 12 of the 21/22 school year is in the books.  Like any great Wisconsin autumn, we had 60 degree weather and 30 degree weather in the same week with sunshine and snow for good measure.  Here are FIVE things to know this week:

  1. In regards to weather, please start preparing for snow by gathering snow boots, snow pants, and warm winter coats.  If you are in need of any winter gear, please contact our office for resources.  Our social worker and school are prepared to help with any warm clothing needs.
  2. Our Thanksgiving week schedule is as follows:  Monday and Tuesday are regular school days. Thanksgiving Break starts Wednesday 11/24/21, and we return to school on Monday 11/29/21.
  3. Thank you for Sgt. Goetch and the Fontana Police Department for spending Wednesday with our school reviewing school safety and intruder drill expectations.  Our students and staff did a great job reviewing strategies to ensure our school remains safe for everyone.  Great job and we are thankful for the Fontana PD for their partnership.
  4. Great job to all Falcons for participating in our Red Ribbon Week festivities.  Students learned about healthy choices and being a good friend.  We were thankful to partner with Walworth and Sharon Schools to provide all students with fun activities.  Big Foot student leaders also spoke to our students about being successful in high school and beyond.
  5. With winter/cold weather comes more time indoors and more spread of illnesses.  Please monitor your child's symptoms each day and stay home if you are sick with fever, cough, and/or body aches among others.  It is better to be safe than to potentially spread illnesses at school.

Have a great weekend, be well, and stay safe.  We have less than a week before football, turkey, and quality family time during our Thanksgiving Break.  We are excited to welcome our newest Falcon staff member this week Mr. Jeff.  He is a wonderful addition to our maintenance/custodial staff in the evening.  Welcome!
