We know that the 2020-2021 school year is different than any other. Taking into consideration the variables between the health, social, academic, and consistency needs of your children can be overwhelming. Rest assured the YMCA of the Northwoods is here to help. As each family makes the best decision they can, we at the Y have put into place the following programs to support you this school year.
We will be using similar terms as the Rhinelander School District for consistency.
Option 1: In-Person School OR Option 2: Hodag Tracks Virtual School.
For families choosing to send their children to in-person school the YMCA of the Northwoods will be offering a before and after school program with full-day options, operating from 6:30AM-5:30PM. Breakfast, lunch, and snack will be offered at this program with time and support to complete schoolwork, and time to play, exercise, and engage with peers. This program will flex to support which phase the District is operating in. For instance, in the green phase, it will only be a before and after school program. In the yellow phase, it will be a before and after school program with a virtual learning day option on Wednesdays. In the red phase, it will switch for a full day virtual learning center.
If the District makes decisions to move from one phase to another, families currently enrolled in this program will have the option to adjust their enrollment to meet their new needs for care. Children in this program will be separated by schools. Crescent and NCES families will be attending at the YMCA Youth Development Center, Central, Zion, and Pelican families at the YMCA of the Northwoods in the Multi-Purpose Rooms.
For families choosing to send their children to Hodag Tracks Virtual School, we will be offering a Virtual Learning Center Program at our YMCA Youth Development Center. This program will run Mondays through Fridays 6:30AM-5:30PM. Breakfast, lunch and snack will be offered at this program with time and support to complete schoolwork, and time to play, exercise, and engage with peers. This group will not mingle with other groups in order to mitigate the chances of exposure.
Both programs will offer the opportunity to enroll in scheduled school breaks. All enrollment must be done online. Cancellation for enrollment must be given in a written notice.
