The Wisconsin Supreme Court yesterday struck down almost all of the “Safer at Home Order,” Executive Order 28. The Court did not, however, strike down the section of the Safer at Home Order that closed public and private K-12 schools. That section of the Safer at Home Order, as well as the defined terms referenced by that section, remain applicable and enforceable. Therefore, the Court’s decision does not reopen schools, which remain closed through June 30th, the end of the current school year.

Parent Pickup of School Meals The Delavan-Darien School District recently received updated guidance from the Wisconsin Department of Instruction regarding the free meal service provided through the USDA. Moving forward, parents are allowed to pick up meals for their children without children being physically present in the vehicle in an “effort to provide some leniency for children who may be sick or immunocompromised and should not be going out to the site”. All Students are Welcome All students age 18 and under are able to receive a free breakfast and lunch each weekday regardless of whether they are currently enrolled in Delavan-Darien or another District. The District is happy to provide this service to all families and students. If you have not already picked up a meal, or filled out our survey, please do so that we can have an idea of your needs while avoiding waste. Please note you only need to take the survey once. The English version of the survey can be found here. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfvsf1B4VlqU8y6BVs-XpfXDA0O_M5zGT9ku1oEPt-Tz7PyxA/viewform?usp=sf_link The Spanish version of the survey can be found here. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdDn2fv-ztpUUdkyELPPXpHzgWMgwf2gi72Cugc-MOVKunpLQ/viewform?usp=sf_link Drive-Through Reminders Meals are served each day from 7am – 10am at the front doors of the Delavan-Darien High School and Darien Elementary. If you do not see anyone outside, please pull forward in the circle so that they can see you from the front door lobby. Staff are always there but they may be inside the front door packing more meals or staying out of the wind and rain. No Meals During Spring Break and the Weekend Due to USDA regulations, the District is currently unable to provide free meals to the community during regularly scheduled breaks such as the weekend and during Spring Break (March 23 - March 27).
All, We are now restricting the Board of Education meeting to only 2 people tonight from the public as the restrictions of only 10 people are allowed at a public meeting. It will be "first come first serve" for those two seats. We will be opening the doors at 6:45 pm.
DDSD will be providing children with meals. We recently received approval from the Wisconsin Department of Instruction to provide a free prepackaged breakfast and lunch daily to all community members who are 18 years old or younger. Meal service will begin on Tuesday, March 17, after plans are finalized and the food service area can be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. A Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) for Families document with more information on virtual learning, attendance, and meals to name a few will be provided to the community on Monday. Thank you for your understanding in this ever evolving situation. DDSD proveerá comidas para los niños. Recientemente recibimos aprobación del Departamento de Instrucción de Wisconsin para poder darles a los estudiantes de 18 años para abajo, desayuno y almuerzo preempacado. El servicio de comida comenzará el martes 17 de marzo, después de que el área de servicio de comida sea debidamente desinfectada. Un documento con preguntará frecuentes para las familias de enviará el lunes a la comunidad. Este documento tendrá más información sobre el aprendizaje virtual, asistencia y comida para dar algunos ejemplos. Gracias por su comprensión en este asunto que constantemente evoluciona.

Aplazamiento de los Próximos Eventos Es con tristeza que debo anunciar que tendremos que posponer el Musical Pippin, el Banquete de Deportes de Invierno, el Banquete de FFA, y el evento de Tazones Vacíos. Por favor sepa que esta decisión fue muy difícil, pero pienso que las reuniones grandes no son lo mejor para nuestra comunidad en este momento. Mi esperanza es que podamos tener estos eventos después en la primavera. Estamos trabajando en un plan de reembolso.
Postponement of Upcoming Events It is with a sad heart that I announce that DDSD will be postponing the musical Pippin, the Winter Sports Banquet, FFA Banquet, and the Empty Bowls event. Please know this decision was very difficult, but I feel large gatherings are not in the best interest of our community at this time. It is my hope that we will be able to host these events later this spring. We are working on a reimbursement plan.
