Beginning next year, Altoona will replace New Richmond as a member school in the Middle Border Conference for most high school sports. This change will not have a major impact on middle school sports as we will still compete against New Richmond as they are so close in proximity to us. Altoona is a great fit in the Middle Border Conference for a variety of reasons. They have a similar high school enrollment as the rest of the conference (488) whereas New Richmond had 991 students, almost double that of most other MBC schools. Also, the drive time from our high school to Altoona High School is 60 minutes. Although this will be our furthest drive, it is only 10 minutes longer than our trip to Osceola. Altoona will not be in the Middle Border for football. Instead, Rice Lake will replace New Richmond. Also, in girls’ golf and wrestling, Altoona will not participate in the Middle Border because of the co-ops they have in those sports. For wrestling and girls’ golf, we will be in a 7-team conference. We would like to welcome the Altoona Rails to our conference and look forward to competing against them next year.

Recently, the district and board have been engaged in a conversation with our community regarding the operational and facilities needs in St. Croix Central schools. While the majority of voters did not feel the two referendum questions on the ballot were the right solutions at this time, we appreciate everyone’s engagement around these important issues. We know that our needs will persist. The board will re-evaluate our options and work to find a new solution that the community can support. Thank you for your support of our schools and the students we passionately serve.
Today is Election Day in Wisconsin! Voters may cast their ballots at the usual polling locations during today’s spring elections. Find voting and polling place information: https://myvote.wi.gov/.
On Tuesday, voters in the St. Croix Central School District will consider two referendum questions. If the operational referendum question is approved, it would allow the district to cover the costs of maintaining competitive staff compensation and other district operating expenses. It would enable the district to exceed its state-imposed revenue limit authority by $1,700,000 in the 2021-22 school year, and then by $350,000 each year through 2031. If the facilities referendum question is approved, it would provide the district with an additional $22.5 million to improve district facilities, including a career and technical addition to the high school to improve programming and opportunities for students planning to pursue the trades. There would also be a four-year-old kindergarten addition to the elementary school so that all 4K students can have the same access to the many services only available to them on our elementary campus. Additionally, the district would also make upgrades to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and other systems throughout our buildings. Learn more: http://bit.ly/SCCReferendum
The School Board and district leaders have worked diligently to place the district in an outstanding financial position. This allows us flexibility as we work to find solutions to our most pressing needs. Over the years, the board has actively worked to repay previous referendum debt in a way that reduces interest costs, locks in state aid, and improves the financial position of the district for the future. The district is on schedule to fully retire all debts in 2035. It will also refinance and prepay debt in 2021, reducing interest costs by more than $1.9 million. Because of work done by the School Board, potential mill rate increases as a result of the referendums in 2021 would be largely offset. Thanks to this work, the district is in a sound financial position in advance of the two referendum questions the community will consider on Tuesday, April 6. Learn more: http://bit.ly/SCCReferendum
Tuesday, April 6th is a very important education election that will shape the future for SCC. The following educational decisions are on the ballot: - State Superintendent of Public Instruction - SCC Referendum - Three SCC School Board Seats Polls are open at your local municipality from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Why invest in our staff at SCC? Because people make the difference. The quality of our staff equals the quality of our school. Although many things determine employee engagement and satisfaction, SCC believes that competitive compensation is fundamental to attracting and retaining an outstanding workforce. Great staff make a great school.
If both referendum questions are approved on April 6, district residents would see an estimated property tax increase of 99 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. This would result in a tax increase of about $198 for the owner of a home worth $200,000, over the course of a year. Learn more about the questions on the ballot, the tax impact, and other important information on the upcoming referendum: http://bit.ly/SCCReferendum
If the community approves the facilities referendum question on the ballot for St. Croix Central on April 6, the district would be able to expand Career and Technical Education (CTE) programming. These programs allow students who learn critical, foundational knowledge in one set of classes to use technical skills to design and build—often with the same tools used in industry. By expanding our CTE opportunities, we provide all students a clean, safe, and modern space that facilitates learning and allows students to gain important skills they can apply to a well-paying job after graduation. We can also meet our goal of helping ensure students gain the knowledge and skills that will serve them well in the future, while meeting local businesses’ needs for skilled employees.

Dear SCC Families, Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the USDA has announced that all students will be eligible for free breakfast and lunch regardless of family income through December 31st, or until funding is depleted. This is retroactive back to September 1st. All student accounts charged the last few days will be credited. The free meals program does not include a la carte items. Students will still use their accounts for tracking purposes. It is very important that families still complete the free/reduced applications. The application can be found here. Virtual learning students are also eligible. We are working on the details of how we will provide those meals and more information will follow in the coming days.
So many SMILES behind the masks over here at SCC Elementary! Feels so good to see kids back together. We want to thank our families for being patient and understanding with all the new changes...especially at the parent pick up line! It was 5 minutes faster today than yesterday. Hopefully we will just keep getting better!
Drop off went great this morning! Thank you! We have several parents picking up this afternoon as well. Please be patient with us until we get it all ironed out. Please know that there are two pick up locations. There will be supervisors at both and will call your child out. Please have your yellow card tag up in the window! Younger children can walk out with older siblings to street level. Location for 4K-2nd Grade – car loop by front door Location for 3rd-4th Grade – Eastside of Division Street Keep the flow going by pulling all the way forward Stay in your car In order to help with congestion we are going to try staggered pick up times. We will change as needed. If you are able, please try to pick up at the following times. If you cannot, please do what is best for your schedule!

We all know the economy is tough, and I’m trying to spread the word about a federal grocery benefit that a lot of people still haven’t claimed – and the deadline to apply is July 31 st ! Remember when schools closed down in the spring? Well, part of the federal government’s response was the creation of a program to help families replace the missed school meals during school closures. It’s called Pandemic-EBT (you can read about it here: https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid- 19/forwardhealth-foodshare.htm), and each eligible child is issued up to $324 in benefits for the months of March-June. Many families got the benefit automatically – it was added to their FoodShare called called “QUEST.” Others have had EBT cards mailed out to them. But tens of thousands of kids haven’t gotten the benefit even though they are eligible. If your child would’ve received free or reduced-price meals when the schools closed down, they are eligible for this benefit! If you haven’t gotten it, you have to apply by July 31 st . You can apply here: https://bit.ly/P-EBT_APPLY But you can also email or call Matt Stienstra at Hunger Task Force in Milwaukee if you have questions. Matt.firstname.lastname@example.org or 262-510-7528

Good Day! I am excited to be able to share that we were able to get access to a Viewing of Screenages-Next Chapter. Stress is a complicated and dynamic physical and emotional response a person may have as they interact with their circumstances. It is a subjective experience - what feels stressful on one day may feel easy the next, and what is stressful to one person might not be to another. Furthermore, some amount of stress can be useful and increase productivity, where too much stress can be debilitating. Because of all these factors, identifying, measuring and treating stress can be challenging, but it is important to know that it is possible and necessary to learn how to manage stress. Dear Parents, We hope this guide and movie helps with your talks with your tweens and teens about mental wellness. Consider having short weekly conversations on topics in the film such as stress resilience, emotional agility, and healthy screen habits. To View Screenagers-Next Chapter click the following link: https://www.bigmarker.com/screenagers-starhouse/SCREENAGERS-NC-STREAM-St-Croix-Central-School-District Sincerely, Delaney Ruston, MD & Lisa Tabb Screenagers Next Chapter Resources: There is a great powerpoint (Jonah Tab) in the folder below that will assist you with understanding the purpose of the movie and why we shared it.

We HAVE water at the elementary school! Thank you to the many crews that have worked endless hours. Thank you to the families for your patience and understanding. We are looking forward to seeing all the kids tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 27!!
We would like to thank you for your patience as workers continue to work hard to repair the water main break at the elementary school today. They are currently still out working and Unfortunately, they’ve run into further complications and the water is still not turned back on at the school. This means there will not be school for students again tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 26. There will not be 4K at the Trinity location as well in order to maintain consistency in our 4K Program. All Elementary staff will be asked to report to school as usual. Kids CARE will be open 6am -6pm and all details remain the same as today or any non-school day. Please contact Chelsy Strom via email to confirm placement at Kids CARE. Again, thank you for your understanding. We will share more tomorrow as we continue to correct this problem.
St. Croix Central Elementary School is closed Tuesday, February 25th due to a water main issue. 4th Grade Play Practice is also canceled. Middle and High Schools will have a regular day of classes and activities. Kids CARE will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Thank you.
