The Mequon-Thiensville School District (MTSD) has developed an operational plan detailing the ability to provide families with the option of on campus or distance learning. On campus instruction would include maximum physical distancing throughout school buildings, while the amount of contacts an individual has with others would be based on data derived from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Families are asked to declare their intent for their child(ren) to attend school on campus or via distance learning through an addendum to enrollment later this week. To further inform the plan, all on campus and distance learning provided this school year will be implemented using the district’s new learning management system - a platform that will allow teachers to manage and organize lessons online.
According to the plan, at times throughout the school year, a hybrid instructional model (a combination of both on campus and distance learning) may be considered for some or all grade levels when positive cases of COVID-19 are identified within the system.
MTSD informed families last week of mitigation procedures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including the implementation of face coverings, physical distancing, self-monitoring and screening, hand washing/hand sanitizing, and cleaning and disinfecting practices.
As MTSD monitors external and internal factors relating to local COVID-19 data, it is expected that instructional scenarios and operating procedures will change.
