Dear IGSD Parents and Guardians, 


Iowa-Grant School District continues to be committed to in-person learning for as many days as possible.  After weighing the pros and cons, the decision was by the Ad Hoc Reopening Committee to return to in-person learning directly following spring break on April 6th.  


Up until this decision, the District had been advising those who travel to quarantine in accordance with the CDC guidance.  We still encourage following CDC guidance, but we will not mandate quarantines based upon travel destination.  For those who have decided to travel domestically, please refer to the guidelines provided by the CDC.  


**Please remember that students should stay home if they have any COVID symptoms.  Also, if other household members are sick, not feeling well, symptomatic, waiting for test results or waiting to be tested; students should be kept home.** 


If you have any questions/concerns about whether your child(ren) should come to school, please call prior to sending them.   


The count for Iowa-Grant’s COVID positive cases thus far this school year is thirteen staff members and twenty-nine students.  Of those cases, we have one student  currently recovering.  We have additional individuals who were close contacts and are quarantined because of contacts at home, school, or in the community.  


As always, at any moment our in-person learning could pivot to virtual learning if we have multiple positive staff/students.  We are closely monitoring things and will provide you with updates if anything changes or further steps are necessary. If you have questions about COVID-19 or need to report a positive case of COVID-19, please do not hesitate to contact our Nurse Sharon Friederick at sfriederick@igs.k12.wi.us.   My email address is shubbard@igs.k12.wi.us.  


Sincerely, 

Stephanie Hubbard, Superintendent IGSD

Dear Iowa County Parents and Community Members: 

In late September 2020, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Division of Extension in Iowa County sent out 6,643 surveys about broadband internet services in Iowa County.  We have been asked to send out a reminder to our school district parents and families in hopes that all of you will take the time to fill it out so the survey team has sound data about broadband internet as it exists now, the quality of that resource, and where we need improvements.  The survey team will use the data to apply for grants, look for other partners and financial resources, and develop plans to attract existing and new broadband internet service providers.

Not every household in Iowa County received a paper copy of the survey.  For example, if you live in the City of Dodgeville or the City of Mineral Point, you were not sent a paper survey.  It is likely that renters did not receive the mailed survey either since they would not have been part of the mailing list used for this process.  However, the survey team still values everyone’s input and welcomes your response to the online version of the survey preferably with a computer utilizing your home broadband internet service. 

If you are able to do the survey online, please go to https://bit.ly/35GrN1NYou can request a mailed copy by calling 608-930-9850 and leaving your name and mailing address.  Surveys will be collected through October 30, 2020. 

Why is this survey so important?  As we are all aware, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) changed the world we live in.  Earlier this year, Safer-at-Home orders required most of us to think differently, act differently, learn differently, conduct our daily lives differently, and work differently.  One resource/service that has been in the spotlight as many have been mostly confined to our homes, is broadband internet access

We know there are challenges and opportunities to make broadband internet access in our area better.  Without reliable and affordable broadband internet, our communities will fall behind in attracting and retaining residents and providing quality jobs, and our kids will lack access to opportunities that other school districts are building upon.

To have the most useful information, the survey team is requesting your complete address in the survey.  They promise not to share your information publicly but will use it as a way of mapping the internet services for the county.  If you have questions about the survey, please visit the survey website at www.iowa.extension.wisc.edu or call 608-930-9850.  

The survey team appreciates your time and your responses.  You can help make this change!

Sincerely,
Stephanie Hubbard, Superintendent

Each Fall, the Office of Educational Accountability (OEA) at the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) issues Accountability Report Cards for schools and districts in Wisconsin. The report cards present key information related to outcomes for students as measured by statewide assessments, attendance, staying in school, and high school completion.  Whole school performance cannot be captured in any one report, but we are very proud of our students, staff and community for the work that they do each day to help us reach for those 5 stars!
