The pre-registration window for four-year-old kindergarten and new kindergarten students is opening soon. The purpose of pre-registration is to get a good idea of 4K enrollment projections in order to develop class rosters and determine staffing. Families can also indicate their morning or afternoon class preference, and gather some useful information.
The pre-registration window will open on February 15, 2021 and close on April 12, 2021.
On January 14, 2021, all MTSD parents and guardians were invited to attend a special event focusing on educational equity in the Mequon-Thiensville School District, facilitated by Dr. Alicia Moutry and Dr. R. Kweku Smith.
On Monday, October 26 the Mequon-Thiensville School District announced that, due to an increased number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and a delay in information from our local health department, Homestead High School would be shifting to a distance learning scenario for all students, effective Tuesday, October 27.
As positive student cases continued to be reported at Homestead throughout October 26 and 27, it was determined that the period of distance learning for all students would be extended, with a return to campus expected on Monday, November 9.
The COVID-19 burden data for the Mequon and Thiensville community zip codes recently rose to the level of "very high," which prompted school district leaders to consider if a shift in instructional scenarios is necessary for the health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff members. After a review of our internal decision-making factors, including an analysis of the spread of COVID-19 in our buildings, and in collaboration with local health department officials, we have determined that closing all MTSD schools from on campus instruction would not significantly impact the spread of COVID-19 in our community. For now, our schools will remain open to on campus learning.
On the afternoon of Monday, October 19, superintendents from area school districts released a joint communication to families underscoring the importance of following health and safety guidelines in order to limit the community spread of COVID-19.
