SUBJECT: WI DPI plan for fall: “Education Forward”: Safely and Successfully Reopening Wisconsin Schools. https://dpi.wi.gov/sites/default/files/imce/sspw/pdf/Education_Forward_web.pdf. Dear Parents and Guardians, On Monday, June 22nd the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released an 87 page document on how to safely return to school in the fall. We are in the process of reviewing this plan with stakeholders in our community and school. The DPI plan outlines several possible scenarios. This plan includes many recommendations but these are not requirements. The Iola-Scandinavia School District is looking at developing our plan using this resource. We have developed a committee of 25 stakeholders that includes administration, teachers, board members, and community members. Our plan will be released to the community by the middle of July. The plan will include the safest way for us to open our schools and include alternatives for students. In addition, we will be developing alternative plans if things change locally. We encourage our students and families to continue practicing social distancing and adhere to the guidelines provided by the CDC and other entities so we can return to normal as soon as possible. Thank you for your attention to this communication. Sincerely, Ray Przekurat, District Administrator Iola-Scandinavia School District

All students will receive a free book, goodie bag, and snacks. Please call Katie Sroka at 715-445-2411 x1451 to register your child.
Bus Routes: We apologize for some confusion regarding bus routes for the new school year. Routes for 2019-20 are mostly unchanged from 2018-19 and pickup and drop off times should be similar to those from last school year. However, we ask families to be patient during the first few days of school and prepared for bus routes to arrive a few minutes early or later than scheduled. For families who submitted bus registration forms by August 23rd, post cards were mailed home with pickup/drop off times. For registration forms submitted after August 23rd, Kobussen drivers and office staff were contacting families with bus route times as late as Friday afternoon. If you are unsure of bus route info for your child(ren) please plan for the same time as last year (allowing a 5-10 minute difference) or contact Kobussen at Iola.TM@Kobussen.com or 715-227-5100. Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
We are exciting to begin the school year with the district teaching staff on Monday, August 26th. The week will be full of opportunities for growth.
