School Closing/Delay Information 17-18

To help you and your family understand how we make our decision to close or delay schools during the winter weather, we have provided you with some information below. Our primary concern is the safety of all children. The decision to close schools due to severe winter weather is made using the best available weather information and consulting with surrounding school districts. Weather conditions may cause one of the following: Two-Hour Delay: School will begin two hours after normal start time to allow streets and highways to be cleared. School Closing: School is canceled due to unsafe weather conditions for all or most of the school day. Early Release: Students are released early due to poor conditions, impacting safe transportation from school to home. Factors we consider to determine if schools will be CLOSED: Snow: Large amounts of accumulation Drifting and blowing Unsafe road conditions throughout the district Cold: If a Wind Child WARNING is issued by the National Weather Service, schools will most likely be closed. If a Wind Chill WATCH is issued, schools will be open. A decision to delay or close schools will be made by 6:00 a.m. on school days. The announcement of closing or delaying school will be made via email, text and phone messages sent to all students’ homes/families based on personal parent communication selections within the parent portal of Infinite Campus. Additionally, announcements will be made via the local radio and television stations, as well as posted on the district web page at www.mononagrove.org and through the District’s social media channels. Should weather or road conditions cause the school district to close schools once the children are in attendance, similar announcements will be made. The Monona Grove School District uses Infinite Campus, an online student management system to send special alerts and notices to families. The effectiveness of this notification system is dependent on the District having the most current contact information from parents/guardians. Parents/guardians must keep their student contact information up-to-date within the Infinite Campus Parent Portal in order to receive these special alerts, available via text, phone call or email (at your discretion). Parents/guardians who change their home phone, cell phone, work phone or email address are encouraged to update their information as soon as possible. A quick link to log into the Infinite Campus and the Parent Portal is located on the top right of the District’s website. Directions for navigating the Parent Portal can be found by using this link: http://www.mononagrove.org/cms_files/resources/Navigating%20the%20Infinite%20Campus%20Portal%20Update.3.11.pdf Parents who feel the weather conditions pose an undue risk for their child are encouraged to use their own judgment in making a decision whether or not to send your child to school. Students kept home due to this parental decision will be considered excused.

Art on Tour is here!

Part two of a three-year cycle of Art on Tour is here! You may remember last year that Winnequah was selected to partner with the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art to host original artworks from MMoCA’s permanent collection. Aside from providing students with unique opportunities to experience original, museum quality art in their school, a goal of the Art on Tour program is to support interdisciplinary learning through visual art. This year the theme is: “Where and When Is It? Time and Place in Art." This exhibit explores the ways in which familiar environments inform our sense of self, and perceptions about places where we live, play and work. This will be on display thru March 5th. Come check it out!
