11-13-2020 - Dear School District of Wild Rose Students and Families-
Lately, we have seen a surge in cases of COVID-19 affecting the High School. We currently have 5 active cases in the District and it has become more challenging to staff the building.
Earlier this week our administrative team met. We had a very productive conversation on the status of the District, specifically the high school. We came to a consensus to recommend to the Board of Education to take our High School (grades 9-12) in the virtual (PINK) Learning Phase starting Monday, November 16 through Thanksgiving break, bringing the students back into the building on November 30.
There was another productive conversation with the Board of Education last night to discuss this recommendation. At the end of the healthy discussion, there was unanimous consensus to confirm the recommendation.
We believe this is the correct action needed at this time to do our part to help slow the spread and if there are asymptomatic spreaders to reduce their exposure in the buildings.
High School students are still eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch during your time in remote learning. Breakfast and lunch can be picked up between 11am-2pm each school day during your remote learning period. Please contact our Food Service Director, Mrs. Jessica Monteferrante, to place your request with her to pick up lunch and breakfast. You can send her an email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 920-622-4201 ext 1419 to order.
If you need to arrange any pick-up or drop-off of materials please contact the Middle/High school office.
Lastly, the administration and the Board of Education want to share their deep appreciation for everyone’s cooperation and understanding as we make this move to virtual learning for our students in grades 9-12. We hope these recent decisions regarding our District show that we are dedicated to our 2020-2021 Re-Opening Schools plan.
10-28-2020 - Starting November 11, 2020, we will be making a change to our School Calendar. We have provided a revised copy in the WildCat Chat for you to reference along with updating the website with the new calendar. Starting November 11 we will be releasing early at 2:00 PM on Wednesdays. This will allow our staff to have additional time to plan lessons, contact students/families, and prepare for the variety of instructional delivery methods needed. We are preparing instruction for students in the physical classroom, students that are temporarily virtual due to quarantine/isolation, and students that are in the virtual/remote environment. Working through all of these methods presents its challenges at times and we are providing this additional planning time to help ensure the high levels of our instructional programming.
Currently, the District has 1 positive active case. From the beginning of the school year, we have had 7 positive cases - 6 are recovered. We have one classroom in the virtual/remote environment. We are continuing in the PURPLE instructional model for all grades (4K-12).

Until then your students’ lunch account will be charged according to their eligibility. This program waiver is in effect for Breakfast and Lunches served in the school buildings. For any student that is attending the remote/virtual program, we are offering an option for the student family to pick up the meals daily at the MS/HS between 1:15 and 2:00 PM. Please contact Jessica Monteferrante, our Food Service Director, via email to place your order 1 day in advance.

5-15-2020 - Waushara County Reopen Recommendations
5-14-2020 - Wisconsin Public Schools Remain Closed even with the Wisconsin Supreme Court Decision. The Wisconsin Supreme Court yesterday struck down almost all of the "Safer at Home Order," Executive Order #28. The Court did not, however, strike down the section that closed public K-12 schools. That section of the Safer at Home Order remains applicable and enforceable. Therefore, the Court's decision does not reopen schools, which remain closed through June 30th, the end of the current school year. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will continue to provide updates as they become available.
Waushara County is working on guidelines to continue to turn the dial as we move forward with COVID-19. These guidelines will be available and shared with our school community once they are available.
4-24-2020 - MS/HS Grading Guidance for Skyward
4-16-2020 - Governor Tony Evers today directed Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Secretary-designee, Andrea Palm, to extend the Safer at Home Emergency Order #28 from April 24, 2020, to 8 AM Tuesday, May 26, 2020, or until a superseding order is issued.
This order includes schools: Public and private K-12 school buildings and grounds will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. We will continue our off-site Instructional Learning Program.
We will follow up with more information and details in the next days/weeks. We will communicate important messages over the next days and weeks. We have been having conversations and making decisions trying to plan for this extension. There are a number of items we will work on finalizing and getting that information to you.
The School District of Wild Rose will continue the current Food-Service Program, curbside grab-and-go and deliveries until at least May 26th, 2020. If anyone would like to make a change to their foodservice needs, breakfast and lunch, please contact the school office.
School Report Cards will be arriving soon. We have adjusted our grading procedure due to the Safer at Home/School Closure Order. Please visit the District website and view the document specific to grading.
The School District of Wild Rose appreciates your support, patience, and understanding during this Pandemic event. We Are Wild Rose and we are going to navigate this together. We are here to help, if you need assistance please contact the school offices directly.

3-19-2020 - A message from Wild Rose Schools. We believe the continuity of our educational programming is very important to our students, families, staff, and community as we navigate the unique circumstances of our statewide school closure. We have updated our COVID-19 webpage, linking our educational plans specific to each building. These are general educational plans. More specific details about your child's instruction will be clearly communicated by the individual teacher. Please understand that our plans may change based on information gathered from the state of Wisconsin. We will continue to work with our staff, students, and families to make adjustments as we continue through this school closure. Please reach out to your child's teacher or school office with any questions.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and cooperation.
3-17-2020 - The purpose of the Food Service survey is to gather information from students and families so we can appropriately plan the continuation of our food service program. Parents, please fill out this survey for EACH child you have in the School District of Wild Rose that are interested in receiving free breakfast and lunch starting Monday, March 23. We are planning to offer a free "bagged" breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday from 8:00-11:00 AM at the Wild Rose High School Main Entrance. 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘁𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝘃𝗲𝘆 𝗯𝘆 𝗧𝗵𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗱𝗮𝘆 @ 𝟴:𝟬𝟬 𝗔𝗠.
Children will receive a grab-and-go lunch plus breakfast. Per USDA regulations, we are requesting children to be present in order for meals to be provided.
This program is solely for the pick-up of meals; meals will not be consumed on-site. We encourage families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by not congregating at the pick-up location. Continue to wash your hands often, sneeze or cough into a tissue, and stay home if you are sick.
3/16/2020 - Good Evening- A message from Wild Rose Schools. The evolving COVID-19 situation has brought us to reconsider our previous plan. There will no longer be school tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17. Staff should report to the Middle/High School Auditorium at 8:00 AM tomorrow. Our goal is to work toward continuing our educational programming starting Monday, March 23. Our schools will be open starting at 10:00 AM tomorrow for any students and/or families to come and pick up materials. This event has caused us to continually evaluate the situation and we feel that closing tomorrow is the right thing to do for our educational community. We appreciate everyone's cooperation, patience, and understanding as we navigate and process our immediate future.
