7/2/2020 - BEHIND-THE-WHEEL DRIVING INFORMATION

  • Greetings Tiger Family,  

     

    Thank you for your continued patience regarding our plans for Drivers Education students. Administration and SDOM staff have been collaborating with the Department of Public Instruction, Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the Wood County Health Department as we develop transition plans and safety protocols for in-person instructional delivery. Please know that we understand the value and importance in providing students an opportunity to earn their driver’s license through this course.  

     

    However, in order to mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19, it is important that we begin instructional delivery with new safety procedures on behalf of students, staff, and the Marshfield community. As we approach the start date for in-person instruction, I wanted to provide you with some updates regarding tentative timeframes and safety protocols for both Behind the Wheel training and Observation hours.  

     

    Tentative Time Frame 

    • July 1st-July 17th: Complete Behind the Wheel Sessions for Semester 1 (Fall 2019) Students  
    • July 17th - Start Behind the Wheel Sessions for Semester 2 (Spring 2020) Students.  

     

    • Please note: the completion date for Semester 2 students will be highly dependent on new guidelines/recommendations that we receive from DPI, DOT, and Wood County Health Department.   

      

    Behind the Wheel Safety Procedures 

    • 1-1 Ratio: To reduce exposure to other students in close proximity, students will perform behind the wheel on a 1-1 ratio (student/teacher). If there are changes in this ratio, we will communicate those changes at that time.  

     

    • Equipment: Students will sanitize any equipment used prior to leaving their respective sessions. Staff will be responsible for completing final sanitizing and security of equipment between sessions and upon completion of each day.   

     

    • Face Coverings: It is not required that students wear a face covering while operating a vehicle. Students are certainly welcome to do so if they so choose. Staff will be wearing a mask at all times.    

     

    • Hand sanitizer and/or sanitizing wipes: Students and staff are encouraged to provide their own hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) and/or sanitizing wipes. Students and staff should use hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting the vehicle. Additionally, the district will have hand sanitizer available for daily use, if a student cannot provide their own.   

     

    • Transitions There will be a 15-minute break between each behind the wheel session. This will provide staff adequate time to complete an additional opportunity to disinfect any equipment in the vehicle.  

     

    • Wellness Screening: Students and staff will need to complete a Pre-Instruction Wellness Screening, daily. Click here to complete the daily wellness screener. Detailed information regarding the wellness screener is outlined below. 

     

    Pre-Instruction Wellness Screening: Students and staff are required to electronically report, via their Canvas Classroom group or other electronic platforms, the following, approximately 20-30 minutes prior to arrival. Students should check their school email daily to complete the Pre-Instruction Wellness Screening. No student or staff member will be able to participate if these questions are not answered prior to arrival.   

    1. Temperature, if a person has a temperature of 100.4 or greater, they should not  

    attend sessions   

    1. Fever   
    1. Cough   
    1. Sore Throat   
    1. Shortness of Breath   
    1. Close contact; or care for someone with COVID-19  
    1. Any person with symptoms of respiratory illness should not be allowed to take part in workouts until they are free of fever and respiratory symptoms for at least three days without the use of fever-reducing medicine AND ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.  They should contact his or her primary care provider or other appropriate health-care professional for guidance.  Written medical clearance is required to return to activity. 
    2. A record should be kept of all individuals present.   

     

    Behind the Wheel Overview and Sign Up 

    • Behind the wheel sessions will remain roughly 1 hour long per student.  
    • Students who fail to show up to an assigned time will be afforded an alternative time after all other students completed their respective sessions. It is imperative students show up on time for their assigned session/s and complete the daily wellness screener.
    • Students from Semester 1 (Fall 2019) and Semester 2 (Spring 2020) click here to sign up for behind the wheel. The Drivers Education instructor will contact you after the schedule has been complete to verify times.  

     

     Sincerely, 

     

    Jackson Hein

    Assistant Principal/Summer School Coordinator

6/26/20 - SUMMER SCHOOL IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION EMAIL TO PARENTS/STUDENTS

  • Summer School: In-person Instruction 

    Greetings Tiger family! Below are the guidelines for the optional, in-person instruction that may begin Monday, July 6th for a few summer school course offerings (listed below) at MHS. This in-person instruction for summer school courses is not required for students to attend. The following courses will offer some form of optional, in-person instruction starting Monday, July 6th

    • Computer Applications
    • Drivers Education (Including Behind the Wheel for Semester 1 and Semester 2 students)
    • FFA: Tractor Safety Course/Officer Retreat
    • Sports Medicine 
    • Rod Building Course-Middle School Students 
    • Strength and Conditioning Sessions (Click HERE for additional information and to sign up) 

     If your student’s summer school course is not listed, it will not offer an in-person opportunity at this time. As a reminder, the summer school program will continue to provide a 100% online version of every course for the remainder of the summer school term. 

     Below are the guidelines for in-person instruction. Guidelines for these in-person instruction days will be strictly adhered to. Staff or students who do not follow these steps will not be able to participate in these in-person instructional opportunities. 

     Safety Protocols

    Class Sizes: Courses will not exceed 10 persons total.  Once groups are determined and communicated, students may not switch from one group to another. Interaction between groups shall be minimized or avoided. This 10-person group size follows guidance from the CDC, Wisconsin DHS, and Wood County Health Department.

    • Social Distancing:Teachers are responsible for ensuring social distancing is maintained between students as much as possible.  This means additional spacing within the classroom during instruction and no congregating of students prior to or upon completion of the course. Students will be responsible for adhering to the social distancing standard of being 6 feet apart at all times.  
    • Equipment: Students will sanitize any equipment used prior to leaving their respective sessions. Staff will be responsible for completing final sanitizing and security of equipment between sessions and upon completion of each day. 
    • Face Coverings:It is required that both students and staff use a mask at all times.  
    • Hand sanitizer and/or sanitizing wipes:Students and staff are encouraged to provide their own hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) and/or sanitizing wipes. Students and staff should use hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting any classroom. Additionally, the district will have hand sanitizer available for daily use, if a student cannot provide their own.  
    • Restrooms:Students and staff are encouraged to utilize personal hygiene needs before arriving.  
    • Transportation/Entering and Exiting the School Building:As locations and groups are finalized, we will communicate the required drop off/pick up locations for each course. Our primary goal is to have students enter and exit the building at the location closest to their respective classroom. Doing so will help reduce the amount of travel within the building for each student. 
    • Daily Completion of Instruction:Please note, upon completion of daily in-person instruction, it is imperative that students leave the HS immediately after the course has concluded. Please coordinate transportation plans accordingly.  
    • Wellness Screening: Students and staff will need to complete a Pre-Instruction Wellness Screening, daily. Detailed information is outlined below.

    Pre-Instruction Wellness Screening: Students and staff are required to electronically report, via their Canvas Classroom group or other electronic platforms, the following, approximately 20-30 minutes prior to arrival. No student or staff member will be able to participate if these questions are not answered prior to arrival.  

    1. Temperature, if a person has a temperature of 100.4 or greater, they should not attend sessions 
    2. Fever 
    3. Cough 
    4. Sore Throat 
    5. Shortness of Breath 
    6. Close contact; or care for someone with COVID-19
      1. Any person with symptoms of respiratory illness should not be allowed to take part in workouts until they are free of fever and respiratory symptoms for at least three days without the use of fever-reducing medicine AND ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.  They should contact his or her primary care provider or other appropriate health-care professional for guidance.  Written medical clearance is required to return to activity.
      2. A record should be kept of all individuals present. 

     Students and staff are encouraged and required to stay home if they are sick with any illness. The pre-instruction wellness screening is a daily requirement for students and staff.  

     As we transition back to the optional, in-person instruction for a few of the summer school course offerings, students/families will have an opportunity to sign up for a preferred time slot. Please note, we will do our best to offer time slots within your student’s actual assigned class period. Additionally, we will make every effort to assign students to their desired times.  Summer school staff will send a link via email to students and families enrolled in the summer school courses. If your student is interested in receiving in-person instruction and agrees to adhere to the safety protocols, please complete their respective link for registration purposes. Once cohorts of 10 persons have been established, the respective staff member will email the student/family the session that the student will need to attend.  

     Thank you for your continued patience during these challenging times!

    Assistant Principal/Summer School Coordinator

MHS Grads Named State AP Scholars

  • State AP Scholar Suhaas Bhat State AP Scholar Nikita Gonugunta

    State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor offered her congratulations to Wisconsin's 2019 State Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars, Suhaas Bhat and Nikita Gonugunta. Both students are 2019 graduates of Marshfield High School.  They are the 17th & 18th MHS students to earn the title of state scholar.

    "Our State AP Scholars are two students who graduated well prepared for college and career," Stanford Taylor said. "Academic rigor, such as in the AP Program, along with necessary supports, is what we want for all students."  The College Board grants the State AP Scholar Award annually to the top male and female students in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia for their performance on AP exams. Students are chosen for the award for earning scores of three or higher on the greatest number of AP exams and then the highest average score (at least 3.5) on all AP exams they have taken.  Bhat now attends Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. Gonugunta attends the University of Wisconsin–Madison.   The AP Program offers students the opportunity to take college-level courses while in high school and to take end-of-course exams, in 38 subject areas, to demonstrate their mastery of the subject. Students earning a score of three, four, or five on AP exams generally receive college credit, advanced standing, or both at many colleges and universities worldwide.
