A message from PCSD Food Services

With the recent school closures, PCSD Food Services wants to do everything it can to serve our community and help our students during this time even while they cannot be in the buildings.  PCSD is offering curbside meal service to anyone 18 and under at the below buildings, dates and times.  

All meals that are served are FREE to students 18 and under, no paperwork required, no questions asked. Meals will be served regardless of eligibility. A child does not need to attend the building from which he or she is picking up meals. Families will not need to enter the building as drive-through meal service will be offered. Due to closures, we ask that the meal not be consumed in the school area.  Meals will be available for pick-up outside, at the door indicated below.

Two meals will be served at one time, lunch for the current day and breakfast for the following day.


Meal Service Before Spring Break 

Wednesday, March 18, and Friday, March 20: (No meal service is offered Thursday, March 19. Children will receive Thursday’s meals on Wednesday.)

Meals will be served at:

  • Glenbrook Elementary: Door No. 2 through circle drive
  • Hillcrest Elementary: Main entrance doors
  • Sunnyside Elementary: Main entrance doors

Meal service times: 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.


Meal Service After Spring Break* 

Monday through Friday, March 30-April 10

*Dates may be modified depending on school closure

Meals service locations will be determined later this week and will be communicated to parents and families.  

Meal service times:

  • Mondays: 8 a.m. - 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Tuesday through Friday: 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.

District parents and staff,

News of the coronavirus COVID-19 is everywhere. Many parents are wondering how to bring up the epidemic in a way that will be reassuring and not make kids more worried than they already may be. With the quick closure of schools, here is some advice from the experts at the Child Mind Institute.

Other items of note include:

PCSD Food Service is working on plans to provide student meals for this week starting Wednesday. A separate announcement on this will be sent to parents on Tuesday.

Students have no online study obligations until the first Monday following the regularly scheduled spring break, March 30. More information will be pushed out to parents prior to March 30.

In regard to spring sports, the WIAA has banned all activities until April 6. Check out more from the WIAA here. Once school is back in session, FRCC athletic directors will meet to plan spring sports seasons.

The PCSD will provide additional information to parents and staff regarding the coronavirus or Covid-19 and its impact on the PCSD as soon as possible. Please watch your email on a regular basis for new correspondence. And check out the FAQ on the PCSD website.

Based on a new directive this afternoon from Gov. Tony Evers regarding large-group meetings, there will be no school Tuesday, March 17, in the Pulaski Community School District.

Parents and students can access school from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday to pick up student medications as needed.

For ongoing information and resources, visit our FAQ on the district website.

We will provide further updates in the very near future.

Tony Klaubauf

Interim Superintendent

According to DPI expectations for school closures, all medications must be picked up by parents before the school closure Tuesday afternoon.

Parents must pick up medication today or tomorrow by 3:30 p.m. A responsible adult other than the parent may pick up medication if the parent cannot come during the time frame, as a parent you are able to designate an alternate adult to pick up the medication but you will need to contact the school's office to give the name of that adult. For controlled substances, the district will be check an ID and count the number of pills you are given back. 

Thank you,

PCSD

Parents,

Even though Gov. Evers closed all state schools, we will continue with the plan sent out yesterday.  As of now, students will not report to school on March 18 and would report back to school on April 14.  We want to make sure students stay out of school for at least two weeks after many families return from other states or countries after our scheduled spring break.

If a member of your family has recently visited states on the West Coast, New York or any other hard-hit state or country, please keep your child home on Monday or Tuesday to decrease the chance of spreading this virus.

If the child needs supplies from school for the break, call the school.  They will make arrangements to get those you by meeting you at the car or entering school on the days that students will not be in school this week.

I am sure there will be a number of messages as we move forward with this once-in-a-lifetime event.   We will keep parents informed as best we can.

Here is hoping your family stays healthy and refer to our FAQ on the district’s website for the most up-to-date information.

Dear PCSD families:

I am writing to share an update regarding some information pertaining to Covid19 and the PCSD plan.  After discussions with the Department of Health as well as area superintendents, we have decided to have school for students on Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17.  However as of Wednesday, March 18 students will not be in attendance until April 14, 2020. Future communications will be coming regarding a meal program for students as well as potential childcare. Our staff will have professional development and collaboration time on March 18-20 to work on virtual learning for our students following our spring break.  More information will be shared with parents later next week regarding virtual learning. 

Staff will continue to work to support the needs of students. School counselors will be available to support students as changes take place.

Students have been asked to bring the following items home this weekend:

  • Elementary:  Winter boots and snow pants (due to custodial staff doing a deep clean in our buildings), iPads along with cords and cubes and Stepping Stones Math Journals.
  • Middle and High School:  iPads, cords and cubes. 

In terms of devices, please discuss the following iPad care with your children:

  • Be mindful of how you place your iPad in your backpack.  If there is any padding in student backpacks, please store iPads within this padding.  If there is not any padding in backpacks, please ensure there is not alot of weight on top of the iPads as the backpacks are carried.
  • Be mindful of how you set down your backpack with the iPad in it.  Please don’t throw or drop your backpacks.
  • At home, please don’t put iPads on floors that they can be stepped on.
  • Leave your iPad, cable and cube in a central location at home to avoid misplacing it.
  • Please keep iPads away from all food and drink.
  • Bring the iPad back to school on Monday charged with charging cable and cube.

At this time, we understand that parents may have concerns about sending your child(ren) to school. Parents who do not feel comfortable sending their child(ren) to school may opt to keep their child at home without penalty of truancy.

We are currently working through our plan of action for after spring break. Please refer to our FAQ posted on the district website.

Sincerely,

Tony Klaubauf

Interim PCSD Superintendent

Pulaski Community School District families,

At this time, all off-campus student activities such as field trips and other trips are postponed or cancelled. Sporting events, concerts and other events will continue as planned within the district.

Parents of students with compromised immune systems should consult with family physicians regarding travel and/or participation in events. As always, parents have an option to withdraw their child(ren’s) participation in an event.

The district’s decisions about school dismissal or cancellation of school events will be made in coordination with our local health departments. Dismissal and event cancellation decisions are considered on a case-by-case basis using information from health officials about the local conditions. 

Please continue to refer to our FAQ as we continue to update it with new information.

Coronavirus continues to evolve daily throughout the United States.  We, in the Pulaski Community School District, are continuing to work on our efforts to ensure the safety of the students, staff and everyone who is part of our district. Click HERE to access an FAQ link, which will also be displayed on the homepage of the PCSD website to help answer some of the inquiries we are getting on a daily basis. Our main purpose for this message is to let everyone know we are using the most up-to-date information provided to us from a variety of sources including the health departments.  

We will continue to update our community through this spring until the virus subsides. As good role models for our students, as we deal with this situation, we want to stay calm, follow instructions from health professionals and use common sense moving forward.  Panic, anger or over-reaction will not help at this time, and will cause more stress for our children.  

We are asking parents to update emergency contact information in Skyward Family Access or by calling your child’s school. To update your phone numbers and email in Skyward, log into Skyward Family Access and select “My Account” in the upper right menu bar.  We would like to ensure that we are giving families the most up-to-date communication.  

If you have questions or concerns, please call or email Dana Thibodeau, District Office administrative assistant, at 920-822-6001, dmthibodeau@pulaskischools.org, and she will forward the questions to the appropriate person.

Dear Pulaski Community School District families and staff,

The threat of the coronavirus or COVID-19 has been on the forefront of news coverage in recent weeks. The immediate health risk from this virus to Brown, Shawano and Oconto county residents is considered very low at this time, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

PCSD leadership is monitoring communications from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding the coronavirus or COVID-19. Currently, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) reports that 39 people in Wisconsin have been tested for the virus. One individual tested positive for the virus, 24 tested negative and 14 cases are  pending. If you wish to stay up-to-date on the testing and the results in Wisconsin, the DHS has a website that is updated every week day by 2 p.m. For the most up-to-date information, visit the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ webpage and the Centers for Disease Control’s COVID-19 webpage.

 The PCSD is being proactive in its planning. District leadership has met to discuss our school district preparedness plan.  Additional meetings will occur next week to fine-tune those plans, with additional meetings planned as needed when more information becomes available. If we have a situation of significantly increased illness or if there are local cases of COVID-19, we will work closely with the Brown County Public Health Department and will follow and adhere to its directions.  

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has also posted guidance regarding preventing the spread of respiratory diseases such as COVID-19.    

We will keep you posted should the need for further action occur.

In the meantime, wash your hands, cover your coughs and if you or your children are sick, please stay home.

PCSD leadership
