On Tuesday, March 2, the District's Governance Team accepted the Medical Advisory Board's recommendation to shorten the close-contact quarantine option for students from ten days to the minimum, 7-day CDC guideline (return to school on Day 8), assuming the student is without symptoms for the duration of the quarantine and has a negative PCR COVID test taken on Day 6 or Day 7.

Elmbrook 2020-21 Learning Hub
We are committed to providing families with in-person and virtual learning options throughout this school year. If you would like to request a change to your child's current learning model for Quarter/Term 4 (beginning April 6), please complete the form linked below by 11:59pm on Sunday, March 7.
Families who would like their child to continue with their current learning model do not need to complete this form and can delete this message.
We have several resources that could help you make an informed decision including:
A webpage that describes the virtual and in-person learning environments for elementary, middle and high school, as well as addresses many frequently asked questions.
The District's COVID-19 Data Dashboard, which provides current disease data in the District, Community and County.
Any change requested by March 7th will be for the duration of the 4th Quarter, which runs from April 6 - June 10, 2021. Families changing from virtual learning to in-person learning will have the opportunity to be placed on a bus route, if desired. All schedule changes and bus transportation route information will be communicated by Wednesday, March 24th.
Please direct any other questions you may have about a learning model change for your child to your school Principal.
Results of our in-person and virtual family surveys are available on this webpage and have been analyzed by our school and district leaders. In addition to building on the positive trends of technology access, high learning expectations, and teacher-student/family communication, our schools are responding to the data by identifying students who may be struggling with academic or mental health concerns. We are also celebrating a safe and successful winter of co-curricular events (athletics and activities), and continue to search for safe ways to provide experiences for students that increase engagement and a sense of normalcy.
