Yesterday, Governor Tony Evers declared a State of Emergency (Low Level) regarding COVID-19.  Today, school leaders from Kewaunee County, along with the Kewaunee County Health Department, collaborated to prepare for next steps in the event that the State of Emergency level continues to rise.

At this time, school will be in operation as normal unless new information warrants a decision should be made otherwise. Strictly as a precaution, your child’s teachers have asked them to bring home textbooks, (Chromebooks for high school students) and other instructional materials in the event that we decide or are directed to close for a period of time. It is important to note that we are taking all recommended precautions.  As a reminder, the pace and scope of change is very rapid and therefore we will be communicating updates frequently as new information becomes available.

The Kewaunee County team of educators and Public Health officials will be reconvening again on Sunday, March 15 to discuss any new developments. 

The following preventative measures have already been enacted by the L-C School District:
  • We are actively following the travel plans and subsequent restrictions of both our staff and families.  At this time, those restrictions apply to level 2 and 3 international communities as well as the state(s) of California, Washington, New York and cruise ship travel.  Currently, a 14 day quarantine is highly recommended for anyone returning from these areas.
  • Large group events such as concerts, banquets and other similar gatherings will be suspended until further notice.
  • Until further notice we are suspending all after-school activities effective immediately. This means no athletic, club or play practices will be held. We will also be restricting our building use by non-school groups outside of the regular school day.

Please understand that new information is coming out on a frequent basis and thus we are doing our best to communicate accordingly. In the event that significant action is required we are prepared and resourced appropriately.
