From Mrs. Prouty: Happy First Day of School!! I am a yellow! See our chart below, used today will all Middle and High school students. I am very happy to announce that the USDA has approved free lunch and breakfast for all students. We still need your applications for free and reduced lunch for every family, but all will be given free food. Soon, probably tomorrow, we will send out the information about how to order for your children 18 and under, on the virtual days. I had previously sent out a survey, which is now closed, for this week's food. If you filled that survey out, Annette Louis is sending food home with your children today (for Wed.) and has arranged for the 100% virtual students' food to be picked up. (Please note this is a very small number of families- only about 20, so you are probably not getting the extra food today or tomorrow. If this is a hardship for your family, please let me know by contacting me via email.) We have already had many glitches, errors, and mistakes. (And it is only 11:00!) Thanks to all of our families that let us know things did not go well; we are working on it. But, we are all HERE, in some way or another, trying our best. Tomorrow will be a learning day for everyone, but with grace and patience, we will all get better at this new way of learning.

Their 3rd annual Stuff the Bus will be held on Wednesday August 19th at the school in Ithaca from 12:00 to 6:30. Drop off supplies or cash donations then or to any Ithaca Lion. They hope to make this the best one yet, but can't do it without your support. Thanks for your past support. Also, The Ithaca Lions in conjunction with NexTrex will be collecting plastic. They will have to collect 500 pounds in six months and NexTrex will donate a park bench to the Ithaca Lions which is made of recycled plastics. The collection bin location has not been announced yet. If you would start saving now, it will make the collection more successful. If you have any questions you may contact any Lion or Dick Hauser at 605-585-4808.

Good luck to Talena Sprecher as she competes in the National FCCLA Job Interview Star Event. Although many of the State and National school competitions were cancelled this spring, FCCLA decided to host their National Convention virtually. This allowed some of the contests to be held via zoom or in a electronic submission format. Talena qualified for Nationals by being one of the top two scores in her division at the district contest. She had to prepare a portfolio for the judges and will have a half hour interview via Zoom.

Greetings Ithaca administration, staff, students, community members and graduating seniors. Since we are unable to meet as a group for our annual commencement celebration at this time, we would like to share the following links (Ithaca Website, Vidyard and YouTube) to view our virtual graduation ceremony. We have included a PDF version of the "Commencement Paper Program" in on our launch document. This program will be featured throughout our video graduation as well. On Monday, June 1 our graduating seniors, participating staff and administration came together in the Ithaca High School Gymnasium to present speeches, commencement rituals and the presentation of diplomas to be recorded and debuted at the regularly scheduled graduation date and time of June 7, 2020 at 1:00 PM. At this time we are proud, honored and humbled to present to you the commencement ceremony of the Ithaca Class of 2020. (please visit the following document for all of the video launch options) https://docs.google.com/document/d/14EoaVcGZ5tg8ub6QZt7NrINWBeWxLq-jH8P8r1OGqZU/edit?usp=sharing You may also click on any of the following direct links to the video - https://www.ithaca.k12.wi.us/o/ithaca-school-district/page/graduation-2020--16 or https://share.vidyard.com/watch/UtuZ9KpQTBMGWj3CnXrD6b? or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghZGpJDtBas&feature=youtu.be

Athletic Director Mr. Thome received this message from the WIAA who asked him to share: Greetings, We are well aware of a news item posted on the WNFL radio website yesterday that misrepresents the existing reality with regard to football and fall sports. No new announcement was made from our office about the status of fall sports, and an excerpt from an interview with a different media outlet was taken out of context and used as the source. Safety and health continue to be our biggest concerns. More accurately, we are optimistic and hopeful that our schools will be able to provide fall sports. But it will ultimately come down to local and state health leaders who are the experts determining if our schools can provide sport opportunities to their student-athletes. We have been involved in some very detailed and intensive communication with the DHS, DPI and the governor's office - near daily - as we work with our sport medical advisory to develop summer contact guidance for our members should they be able to reopen and offer sports. However, it is not finalized yet. We will be discussing the potential opportunities with our committees beginning with the Sports Advisory on Monday. We have been keeping WADA informed of our efforts to develop guidance. We know and understand the interest in all of this and have been working hard to get it right. We hold out hope that our student-athletes will have opportunities in July and in the fall. In regards to fall sports, what we are sharing with anyone who asks: 1. At this point nothing has been canceled. 2. That status can change as other virus developments might emerge. 3. We HOPE kids might return to their schools come fall, and if they do and if schools reopen, we will do our best to have a plan and guidance that our members might choose to use - along with input from state and local health authorities - to decide locally if they can resume their sport and activity programs. Respectfully, WIAA Executive Staff

Temporary food benefits for children who usually get free or reduced-price school meals: Since schools are closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, children who usually get free or reduced-price school meals through the National School Lunch Program can instead get temporary food benefits. These benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT. Children can get these benefits in addition to any other school meals they are getting. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is automatically providing these benefits to most children who usually get free or reduced-price school meals based on information they have on file. If the Wisconsin Department of Health Services is able to verify your information, the benefits will automatically be provided on your QUEST card if you have one or on a P-EBT card you will get in the mail. You can use these cards like a debit card to buy food. You will get a letter in the mail letting you know if you are automatically getting the benefits. You may also get an email in addition to the mailed letter. See more information about these benefits and how you will be notified at dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/forwardhealth-foodshare.htm If the Wisconsin Department of Health Services does not have your information or is not able to verify your information, you will need to apply for the benefits. If you have not been notified that you are automatically getting these benefits by May 20, please complete the application at access.wi.gov/s/pebt?language=en_US. You must apply for the benefits by June 30. It is very important that the information you provide for each child who usually gets free or reduced-price school meals exactly matches the information your school has on file. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services will look at that information to make sure you can get the benefits. If you apply and your information cannot be verified, please check with us to make sure your information is correct. You can contact us at 608-585-2512. We will work with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to make sure the correct information is on file.

SWCAP recently learned we will be receiving WI Rental Assistance Program (WRAP) funds, resulting from the CARES Act. The purpose of these funds is to help those who were negatively impacted by COVID-19 and are struggling to pay rent or security deposit. The SWCAP program will provide funding to eligible individuals residing in the Wisconsin counties of Grant, Green, Iowa, Lafayette and Richland. In general, an applicant must be an adult resident of Wisconsin, with a household income at or below 80% of the county median income in the month of the application or the prior month. For those eligible, the program may provide direct financial assistance for rent owed and/or security deposits. The program will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and the program will expire once CARES funding is exhausted. ----> PLEASE NOTE: SWCAP is not yet taking applications. We will post application instructions and contact information online, once the program is operational, on or about June 8, 2020. We are excited and relieved to have these funds available to eligible residents of Southwestern Wisconsin. We do not currently have any programs that provide similar assistance with mortgage payments. If you are struggling with mortgage payments due to COVID, you may wish to contact Neighborhood Housing Services of Southwest Wisconsin or Wisconsin Rural Housing at https://www.wisconsinruralhousing.org/ to talk with them about programs and services that may be able to help.

From Mrs. Schoen: The school year is its the final stretch. We sincerely appreciate how you have worked with your student and the teachers as we worked through so many unknowns. This Friday, May 29,from 10am-6pm will be the final drop off of student work. There are items to be picked up as well--elementary art projects, leftover items found in lockers or desks, etc. Chromebooks and chargers are to be returned Friday, May 29 between 10am and 6pm. If your child needs to keep the chromebook over the summer, the Chromebook Use Agreement remains in effect through the summer months. When school resumes, if the chromebook is damaged or unusable, you will be responsible for the replacement cost before another chromebook may be issued. When returning textbooks and class books, write the student’s name in the book and place on table beside the teacher’s tote (MS/HS) and in the tote (elementary) All library books should be returned at this time. Anything borrowed from a teacher should be well labeled and returned. A final reminder that this is last week of the 2019-20 school year so all assigned school work must be completed and turned in to your teacher by Friday, May 29, 2020. If unable to make the Friday drop due to family circumstance, call and ask for either Mrs. Schoen or Mr. Lechnir to arrange an alternative time June 2nd or 3rd. . The building remains closed due to the order by the State Dept of Health Services. As before, up to 10 will be allowed in at one time so as to maintain social distancing and other Covid safety measures. We are requesting only one (1) adult /student in the building per family. Elementary parents: If you have not already, please pick up 4 free books for each elementary-aged child. Mrs. Zorea has many, many to choose from . Free lunches and breakfasts will continue through the end of June. Weekly sign up surveys are found on the Ithaca website. Everyone is encouraged to participate. And finally, your family is invited to drive through Ithaca from 6-7pm as the teachers line the streets for the Ithaca Summer Send Off!

Traditional celebrations for Memorial Day are different this year. The reason we honor this day remains the same. Remember our fallen servicemen and women who gave all for the protection of our freedoms, the freedoms of others in the world, and the rights of humanity. We invite you to find your own way of honoring the fallen this Memorial Day.

Tomorrow Bower-Gunnill-Dalton VFW Post 2267 will still hold a public Memorial Day service at the St. Mary's Cemetery in Richland Center beginning at 10:30am honoring our area fallen servicemen and women. It will also be live streamed from on the Richland Center Tourism Facebook page for those of us choosing to attend from home. Please find a way to honor our fallen, as they have given all so that we may have so much. From the VFW Post 2267 Facebook Page, "According to legend, Memorial Day-type remembrances began a year after the end of America’s Civil War. Shops in Waterloo, N.Y. closed for a day in 1866 to honor soldiers killed in that four-year war. The day of remembrance eventually spread to places such as Richmond, Virginia, where flowers were put on the graves of soldiers and, by 1868, a ceremony was added in which the dead were honored with songs and flowers. The annual ceremony began to be called Decoration Day. In 1882, the name was changed to Memorial Day. In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a federal holiday to be celebrated the last Monday in May. Memorial Day celebrations include flags and bunting, eagles and other symbols of America’s hard-fought wars and fallen soldiers. Postcards were one way to express the emotions of Memorial Day and to honor those who had died for their country. They are great collectibles, with their bright colors and sentimental pictures and words. This 1911 postcard with the words “Lest We Forget” was published by LR Conwell."

The Richland County Mental Health Coalition is partnering with Ithaca and Richland School Districts to promote mental well-being of our students. Hortonville Area School District in northeastern Wisconsin is part of N.E.W. Mental Health Connection https://www.newmentalhealthconnection.org/, and is our mentor school. They, along with Prairie du Chien Public School, are guiding our districts in screening students to identify topics and individuals who need more focused attention. By screening students, we can better serve their needs. This video shows how Hortonville Area School District decided to utilize screening and campus-based visits to help promote healthy mental well-being for all their students. Hortonville was the first high school in Wisconsin to implement Sources of Strength in 2015. Since then 42 high schools and two middle schools implemented Sources of Strength. Together, we work toward teaching Hope, Help and Strength. https://dpi.wi.gov/news/dpi-connected/mental-health-video

Wednesday, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled the “Safer at Home Order” issued by Governor Evers/Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) was no longer in effect and allowed for restrictions for non-essential businesses and on travel to be lifted. However, the ruling also specifically excluded the section of the order that called for school closure for purposes of instruction and extra/co-curricular activities.

Here is the survey to complete for next week's distribution from April 20th until 24th. This breakfast and lunch distribution is FREE to all families in the Ithaca district regardless of financial status. It is available for anyone in the household under 18 or still in high school. There is a new survey each week. Ithaca staff will be providing pickup from 4-6pm Monday, April 20-Friday, April 24.  A new survey is required each week. Access this week's survey here or at the end of this message. Complete the survey by the end of this week, Friday, April 17th. We ask that the front seat of the vehicle be vacant so that the food bag can be placed on the seat.  This will limit if not prevent completely any contact between the passengers and the food server.  The drive-thru is set up on the elementary side of the building. Watch for signs. Food service will continue through the closure.  Updates will be broadcast on WRCO, the school website and the Ithaca School District Facebook page. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSecsvjYidxVX_uxPE4YVQNTvgBpBIdaU0N-beBn-qoerPb9GA/viewform?usp=sf_link

April 13, 2020 Dear Parents/Guardians of Ithaca students, (please have pen and paper handy) We hope all have been able to remain safe during this difficult time. Staff are at school every day and phone messages are checked daily so if you need something, please call. Also, ALL families of the Ithaca School District are highly encouraged to participate in the FREE daily breakfast/lunch. Visit the school website weekly to submit your request. If you have questions, contact either Annette Louis or Kathleen Schoen. Some things regarding this next “round” of learning: We will have the school open for you to return student work packets and to pick up the next round. Elementary will continue with packets. Middle and High School are moving their classes to Google Classroom for the most part. If your middle or high school child has not accessed their school email account, they need to do that as the teacher has been in contact with them through Google Classroom. Material pickup and drop off will be Wednesday, April 15, and Thursday, April 16, from 10 AM-6 PM. Chromebooks are being prepared for only the students (Gr 3-12) who indicated on the Student Tech Avail (for parents) Survey that a device was needed. An agreement for use must be signed by a parent at the time of pickup. Please bring your own pen. Please come through the main entrance, maintain social distancing practices, use sanitizer, follow directions for picking up all class materials, drop off completed work packets in teacher-labeled totes, and pick up and sign for chromebooks. Please then follow the signs to exit the building out a different door from the main entrance. We are allowing only one (1) adult /student in the building per family. This is to help reduce the amount of people in and out of the building. Do maintain social distancing and use hand sanitizers. Please do your best to protect yourself and others. Come with a list of your student’s teachers/classes so you know what to collect. We will have internet access in the parking lots for students to use as needed beginning April 20. Everyone is to remain in their cars, download/upload as needed, and leave as soon as possible. This service is being provided because we understand the problem of connectivity we have in our district. All school rules apply because of being on school property. Although the teachers are doing things similarly, all student and/or parent should be in contact with the teacher weekly. Our teachers want to support the learning as well as family needs during this time. If you have not been contacted yet, please call the school office to ensure we have an accurate phone number in our system. Assigned student learning should be completed. Each teacher will be in contact with the student and/or parent regarding how work will be “turned in.” MS/HS school work is to be satisfactorily completed and returned to the teacher. Teachers will then issue a CP (Covid Pass) / CF (Covid Fail) grade based on the school work completed and turned in. The Pass/Fail grade will be for all MS/HS 2nd semester grades (including 3rd quarter). ThePass/Fail grading system does not factor into overall cumulative GPA . Elementary grading remains the same and each teacher will indicate which work is to be turned in or discussed during their weekly check-in calls. Upcoming packet drop offs will be outside the main entrance on Fridays in May. May 1, 15, and 29 from 10 AM until 6 PM. Be sure the student’s name is on all papers turned into the labeled tote. Ithaca Seniors and parents of Seniors, the graduation ceremony is pending the directive of the Governor regarding closure and social distancing. Prom is postponed until further notice as are all other school activities. Again, take care of yourself and your family. Be safe. Sincerely, Mr. Lechnir Ms. Schoen

The transformation is complete! Some of our students and staff were asking about the progress of a cocoon an Ithaca family had. We're happy to show you the results. Was it a cocoon or a chrysalis? The major difference between a chrysalis and a cocoon is that a chrysalis is the hardened body of a butterfly pupa, whereas a cocoon is an external structure constructed by larvae of moths to protect themselves during the pupal stage. This beauty is a Tiger Moth!

Mrs. Pluemer wants to remind everyone not to neglect your mental health. Managing stress and applying simple coping strategies can greatly improve mental health. Check out the link for suggestions. It specifically lists the importance of recognizing the different ways children deal with stress versus adults. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/managing-stress-anxiety.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fcoronavirus%2F2019-ncov%2Fprepare%2Fmanaging-stress-anxiety.html "Children and teens react, in part, on what they see from the adults around them. When parents and caregivers deal with the COVID-19 calmly and confidently, they can provide the best support for their children. Parents can be more reassuring to others around them, especially children, if they are better prepared. Not all children and teens respond to stress in the same way. Some common changes to watch for include: -Excessive crying or irritation in younger children -Returning to behaviors they have outgrown (for example, toileting accidents or bedwetting) -Excessive worry or sadness -Unhealthy eating or sleeping habits -Irritability and “acting out” behaviors in teens -Poor school performance or avoiding school -Difficulty with attention and concentration -Avoidance of activities enjoyed in the past -Unexplained headaches or body pain -Use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs There are many things you can do to support your child: -Take time to talk with your child or teen about the COVID-19 outbreak. Answer questions and share facts about COVID-19 in a way that your child or teen can understand. -Reassure your child or teen that they are safe. Let them know it is ok if they feel upset. Share with them how you deal with your own stress so that they can learn how to cope from you. -Limit your family’s exposure to news coverage of the event, including social media. Children may misinterpret what they hear and can be frightened about something they do not understand. -Try to keep up with regular routines. If schools are closed, create a schedule for learning activities and relaxing or fun activities. -Be a role model. Take breaks, get plenty of sleep, exercise, and eat well. Connect with your friends and family members."

Forensics students: Although your season has been cut short, your coaches are very proud of you for working so hard and performing so well. From the Executive Director of the Wisconsin High School Forensic Association: It is with a heavy heart we must announce cancellation of ALL speech festivals – district and State – for the remainder of the season. Today, Gov. Tony Evers declared a public health emergency, and in accordance, State Statute Ch. 250 requires we cancel our events. With uncertainty and limited time between now and the end of the school year, there are no reasonable means to plan and execute an alternate timeline for festival dates or locations. Several other states have cancelled their State Speech contests, so this is, indeed, an extraordinary situation.

Wash your hands!! According to the CDC, handwashing can help prevent illness. It involves five simple and effective steps (Wet, Lather, Scrub, Rinse, Dry) that you can take to reduce the spread of diarrheal and respiratory illness so you can stay healthy. Regular handwashing, particularly before and after certain activities, is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others. It’s quick, it’s simple, and it can keep us all from getting sick. Handwashing is a win for everyone, except the germs. Taken from the attached article, "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say that best practices for hand washing include not only rinsing the hands with water, but also applying soap and scrubbing the palms, the back of the hands, between the fingers, and under the fingernails. A person should scrub for at least 20 seconds before rinsing the soap and drying the hands with a clean towel. However, Prof. Nicolaides notes that of the people who do wash their hands after using the restroom, many never apply soap and spend under 15 seconds on the procedure." https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/why-hand-washing-really-could-slow-down-an-epidemic?fbclid=IwAR1adoAaENcxF1mcZOC6IeNWrdyUG2VVI-2pvlxC697gdj7MB4cNvslV_4s

February 10-14 is Bus Driver Appreciation Week! The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction joins with Governor Tony Evers to recognize the important contribution that bus drivers make in support of education in the state. Thousands of dedicated men and women work every day to transport children safely to and from school. They become friends and protectors of their passengers, responsible for students’ safety in sometimes difficult conditions, and their work is respected and appreciated. Transporting students over the millions of miles each school year, school bus drivers provide one of the safest ways to make sure students get to and from school. We would like to say THANK YOU to Owen, Tammy, Bill, Cathlynn, Mike, Troy, and Frank S. for your dedication to our school, community, and most of all, to our kids!

Today marks the 34th anniversary of the Challenger Shuttle explosion that took the lives of seven crew members including teacher Christa McAuliffe. Pardon me for a personal reflection. As a 4th grader and like so many students across the nation, we had been prepped by our teachers for this moment. We studied the aeronautics program, reviewed the lessons Mrs. McAuliffe would be conducting from space, talked about the training she endured to become a civilian and female astronaut! Her selection made it seem that anyone of us young people could choose and do anything. As other classes joined us in our classroom, we huddled close to the roll-cart TV. We joined Mission Control in the countdown... BLAST OFF! The cheers were loud and excited! And then 73 seconds later it all changed. Our youth today have become desensitized now to horrendous video, but we had never seen something like that. It was very awful to watch and experience as a young person. Now, I can admire the way our teachers gathered their emotions and talked to us, reassured us, and were honest with us. It is often said that heroes walk among us. How very true. Christa McAuliffe has become an example of that for my generation. She provided us with a public example of the lengths that educators of any type go through to inspire learning and find connections to ALL of their students. Figuratively and at times literally, educators give their lives to young people. In honor of Christa McAuliffe, remember the dedication of one or more of your "teachers". And teachers come in many forms! If you have the opportunity to do so, thank them. Thank you, Mrs. McAuliffe. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sdut-challenger-disaster-mcauliffes-students-have-gone-2016jan27-story.html
