NOTICE FOR BOARD DETERMINATION ON ELEMENTARY STAFFING

 

Kurt Radke, President of the Norwalk-Ontario-Wilton Board of Education has directed me not to place elementary staffing on the March 16 Board Agenda, and the board will postpone any decisions on staffing until the April 15 meeting. The Board of Education wants to wait one more month on making a staffing determination due to the following reasons:

 

  1. The renewal quote for the school district’s group health plan will be submitted to the District Administrator on or about April 1.
  2. The District Administrator will have another month’s worth of information to update the preliminary 2020-21 budget.
  3. The replacement of the retiring of the District Administrator should be near completion.
  4. A full membership of the Board will not be present at the March meeting, but should be present at the April meeting.

 

If there are any questions, contact Dr. Kelly T. Burhop, District Administrator at (608) 337-4403 or kburhop@now.k12.wi.us.

 

 

The Junior Class has scheduled this year’s prom for Saturday, April 18th, 2020! The Norwalk-Ontario-Wilton Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Prevention Association (AODAPA), along with parents and community support, is again hosting a post prom party! These post prom parties would not be possible without the help from parents and the community. The AODAPA is always looking for donations of any kind to make this a fun and safe night for our students. If you can help with activities, set-up, food, refreshments, or cash donations, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone would like to help plan the event, please contact Heather Stebbins at 608-343-4525 or Theresa Rogalla at 608-343-9479. Thank you in advance for all your help!

 

The closing of school because of emergency conditions will be announced on the following radio and television stations:  Radio-WCOW 97.1 FM, WIZM 93.3 FM, WBOG 94.5 FM, WVRO 102 FM Television-WKBT La Crosse Channel 8, WXOW La Crosse Channel 19.  It will also be posted on our School District Facebook page, Norwalk-Ontario-Wilton School District
