The 2022-2023 School Year

In the MTSD, we believe education must address every facet of a child’s being, and our students - the most important resource a community can grow - are relying on our unity and cooperation to thrive. Together, we must remain focused on our goal as a school district to foster collaboration and develop relationships to enhance the safety, connectedness, and well-being of our students.

As a public school district, it is both our obligation toward our community’s children and our passion to support the needs of every student, family, and staff member, that drives us forward.

MTSD 2022-2023 Operating Guidelines

During the 2022-2023 school year, MTSD continues to commit to operating safe and healthy learning environments through the use of ongoing mitigation strategies to maximize protection against communicable diseases in our schools. Those strategies include:

  • Cleaning and maintaining healthy facilities
  • High-quality ventilation
  • Handwashing and respiratory etiquette
  • Physical distancing

Specific to COVID-19 and as part of MTSD's ESSER III Funding Plan, required by the state in order to maintain access to our ESSER allocation, MTSD will continue using the following strategies:

  • Isolating positive cases: Five-day isolation as recommended by the local health department is required for individuals who test positive for COVID-19. Students will have access to learning materials in Canvas while out of the classroom. 
  • Diagnostic testing: When a student or staff member is presenting symptoms associated with COVID-19, school health officials will recommend diagnostic testing.
  • Access to COVID-19 vaccine: MTSD will inform families and staff members of local vaccination opportunities, when available.

MTSD will implement the following layered mitigation strategies based on the CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels - a measure of the impact of COVID-19 illness on health and healthcare systems in Ozaukee County.
