Mosinee School District Families, Staff, and Students:
The Mosinee School District will be closing all schools at the end of the day Wednesday, March 18, 2020, with an anticipated reopening on April 6, 2020. This closure was ordered by the Governor and executed by the Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Health under authority of Wis. Stat. § 252.02(3).
The Wisconsin Secretary of Health stated, ‘The date of reopening is subject to change pending further information. Based on the assessment of the information available regarding the infectious disease, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (“COVID-19”), closure is a reasonable and necessary step to prevent, suppress, and control this disease. To prevent further illness, the schools will be closed until the aforementioned anticipated date of reopening. This order does not prevent a school from providing virtual instruction to pupils.’
The Marathon County Health Department as of today reported no COVID-19 cases in Marathon County. This situation is changing rapidly and updates to this plan may be needed depending on the recommendations from our local health professionals. At this time, the Mosinee School District will be open for school with students on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week which will provide students and staff time to prepare for the extended time off. My previous directive with respect to after school activities will remain the rule through Wednesday March 18 and then the Governor’s Order will be the rule starting at 5 pm on that same day.
Thank you for your understanding, cooperation and flexibility during this unprecedented pandemic.
