Officials of all local school districts—Chilton, Kiel, New Holstein, and Stockbridge—have now announced that their schools are closed effective immediately.
Many state school districts originally planned to be open through Wednesday, but a mandate by Governor Tony Evers to not allow gatherings of 50 or more people forced districts to close earlier.
In New Holstein, Husky Den will remain open for families in need and who choose that service. Food service will be available for all students. Grab-and-go meals can be picked up at the Elementary School cafeteria. Breakfast will be available from 8 to 10 a.m. followed by lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Families may grab both meals in the morning.
Principals will be communicating with parents and students when technology devices can be picked up, if they do not have them already. Staff will be present for two days (March 17 and 18) to prepare virtual learning opportunities. Virtual learning will begin on Monday, March 23.
The district’s Fitness Center will remain open per the regular schedule.
