Virtual Learning

Lake Geneva Schools Virtual Learning Program for students will continue until the last day of school, June 5, 2020. During the extended period of social distancing, virtual learning will ensure that students can continue in their educational growth while they maintain a connection with their teachers and peers. Please make sure your students engage in their virtual studies.


We will continue to follow the 2019-2020 Academic Calendar.  There will be no virtual learning on May 1 (Teacher In-Service Day) and no school on May 25 for Memorial Day.


Please remember that students are not expected to be online all day. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has advised us of the following expectations

 

Grades 6 - 12:  about 3 hours of total virtual learning per day

Grades 3 - 5:  about 2 hours of total virtual learning per day

Grades K - 2:  about 1 hour of total virtual learning per day


Teachers are available to support students with virtual learning via email (or other communication methods communicated to you and the student by your teacher) during normal school hours/days. Our staff has worked diligently to provide the best education possible in a less than ideal learning environment. With that being said, please respect our staff’s own family and personal time by contacting them during the appropriate hours listed below.

Please understand that teachers are receiving a large number of outside communications. They will respond to your message as quickly as possible. Please be patient. If you experience persistent communication issues, please contact your school's principal via email.

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.
