Dear Oriole Nation,

With the continuing evolution of the COVID 19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the School District of North Fond du Lac and St. Paul's Lutheran, is closed immediately and is anticipated to remain closed through Monday, April 13th, 2020. Students in K-12 will be participating in remote learning starting on Thursday, March 19th.

Today all District Staff met and continued to plan how we will deliver instruction and services throughout this situation.  This includes providing instruction, food, and social/emotional supports.  We are developing a process to provide these services while limiting personal contact.  MORE TO COME ON MONDAY!!

There will be no athletics, activities or performances from this point forward and District facilities and grounds are closed until further notice! 

Please stay tuned for more information to all families on Monday, March 16th. There are no school work expectations for any student next Monday through Wednesday.  We are looking to possibly open schools to students for a limited time (Tuesday and/or Wednesday) to get needed materials for the future of remote learning.

I am very impressed with how Oriole Nation is handling this situation!  Please know that all employees of the School District of North Fond du Lac are dedicated to providing everything we can to help your children, families and our community to continue learning and growing, no matter what the world throws our way.

We are proud to serve all of you!

Enjoy your family and stay healthy!

Sincerely,
Aaron and Oriole Nation

Oriole Nation Families,

First – There has been NO CORNA VIRUS INFECTED STUDENTS, STAFF or FAMILIES in the District that we are aware of.  We had some false reports, but nothing that has proven true.

THE SCHOOL DISTRICT OF NORTH FOND DU LAC IS OPEN!!!  We are currently not closed.  BUT we will not have school for students tomorrow, Friday, March 13th, 2020.  All District staff will be at school tomorrow.  We will use this day to plan how we would meet student learning needs and other needs (possibly providing lunches and learning supports) during a shutdown.

The District will also be following the lead of Governor Evers and the Department of Health Services provided guidance about how to best handle the Covid 19 Coronavirus pandemic.  The ultimate goal is to prevent the spread of the virus. Based on the most recent information, we will be canceling all events that may draw a crowd of 250 people or more people, including this weekend's play at Horace Mann High School.

Please follow us on Facebook, Our District App and at www.nfdlschools.org for updates and information.  We will deliver any messages and information through these avenues and this alert system.  Your child(ren)'s teachers, administrators and support staff are working to figure out how to help best move forward in this interesting time to help continue as much of normalcy as possible :-D

Thank you for your support and care!  Together we will make it through our current situation and come out stronger!

Stay Safe - NO SCHOOL TOMORROW - WE ARE OPEN ON MONDAY (so far :-))

Sincerely,
Aaron and the School District of North Fond du lac

Today Governor Evers and the Department of Health Services provided guidance about how to best handle the Covid 19 pandemic.  The ultimate goal is to prevent the spread of the virus. Based on the most recent information, we will be canceling all events that may draw a crowd of 250 people or more

A virus called 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) was detected in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. This virus has not been previously found in humans. There are thousands of cases in China, and additional cases are being identified in the United States. The risk of contracting the 2019 novel COVID-19 remains low in Wisconsin (CDC). 

Signs and Symptoms

People who have confirmed COVID-19 infections have a range of symptoms, from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely sick and dying. Symptoms can include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of Breath

The CDC believes symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after contact with someone who has COVID-19. If you have been to an affected geographic area within the past two weeks and develop symptoms, please call your doctor. 

Prevention and Treatment

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, and there is currently no specific treatment. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus.

Take these steps to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before eating and after going to the bathroom, blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If you do not have soap and water, use an alcohol-based sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
