04/24/2020
Dear CenDen Families, We hope that this letter finds you safe, at home, and healthy. We miss seeing your smiling faces and feeling the excitement and energy that our students bring to our building. As you are aware, the announcement was made last week that Wisconsin schools will remain closed through the end of the school year. With this announcement, we wanted to share an important upcoming event at Central-Denison. To more simply provide instructional materials to our families, we will be having “Pick-up Parade” days on Friday, May 1st and Monday, May 4th from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm at Central-Denison. On these days, our families will be able to pick up instructional materials that students will need to get them through to the end of May. This will also be a great time to return their library books.

As outlined in his email, Central-Denison Elementary will be open on Monday, March 16th and Tuesday, March 17th from 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM for students to gather items. Our library will also be open during that window so that students have the opportunity to exchange their library books before this extended break. Second and third graders, who do not have access to technology devices at home, may also pick up their Chromebooks to use during this time. Please know, however, that this is NOT a necessity. Teachers will be communicating with families throughout the week and again during the week following our scheduled Spring Break.
