Students or staff who participated in the DI event are generally considered to be at low-risk for being exposed to the COVID-19 virus. Attendees are being notified out of an abundance of caution. The recommendations for low-risk individuals are to self-monitor for fever and respiratory illness symptoms, and to self-isolate and contact their local health department or provider if symptoms appear.  There is no recommendation for asymptomatic people who had a low risk exposure to quarantine themselves. Anyone considered to be more than low-risk would be contacted individually by their health department for further assessment.  Please contact your provider or your local public health department if you have questions or concerns.

The Hudson School District has learned a confirmed case of coronavirus (COVID-19) has been identified in Pierce County. It is our understanding that the individual with the confirmed case was present at the recent Destination Imagination(DI) competition this past weekend at Osceola High School. There were Hudson School District students in grades 3-12 at the DI event. Out of an overabundance of caution we are communicating this to you today. 

We are unaware of any confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Hudson School District. According to guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), spending time in the same indoor environment as persons known to have COVID-19 is considered to represent a low risk of exposure to the virus.  While the risk to others is considered low, we cannot know for sure that there is absolutely no risk.

The Hudson School District has a plan in place to address COVID-19 if it spreads to our staff and students (click here to view Hudson’s plan). As part of this plan, the School District will be following the guidance of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Wisconsin Department of Health Services, St. Croix County Public Health, and WI Department of Public Instruction. 

As confirmed cases are identified closer to our Hudson community, the Hudson School District will closely monitor the health and attendance of our students and staff.

We recognize this may cause anxiety among our families and we will do our best to address your concerns. We are committed to ensuring students are supported with love, compassion, and care.

The CDC provides the following:

While the immediate risk of this new virus is believed to be low at this time, everyone can do their part to help respond to this emerging public health threat:

  • It is currently influenza and respiratory disease season. The CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine, taking everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs, and taking flu antivirals if prescribed.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing – throw the tissue away immediately after you use it. If a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your inside elbow area.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. If you are not near water, use an alcohol-based (60-95%) hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick.
  • If you get flu-like symptoms, stay home from school, work, and social gatherings to prevent others from getting ill.
    • If you have a fever of 100 degrees or above, you should stay home.
    • Your fever should be gone for a full 24 hours, without using fever-reducing medication, before returning to work.

“In Wisconsin, adolescents who experience episodes of major depression have steadily increased. At the same time, there has been a growing body of evidence to suggest the amount of screen time usage may initiate or worsen symptoms of anxiety and depression, reduce social connectedness, and contribute to poor social and emotional wellness.”

Leading up to the lab simulation, students study economics and finance in their World Studies and Math classes. Students complete resumes, job applications, and participate in job interviews in their Language Arts classes. During their time in the lab, students work to operate a profitable business, manage their finances, gain an understanding of local government, and experience being an “adult?for the day. 

This year’s “Mayor?Lily Welle, from the Raider White House had this to say about her BizTown experience, “This experience will be very hard to forget. During the day my job was to run the whole town, answer questions or concerns, and spot out who was being a good worker and citizen. As mayor in others?eyes, it seems that all you do is walk around and talk to people, when that is not it. As mayor, you have many responsibilities like making sure all of the citizens get paid the right amount, do all of the bank loans, give speeches about what’s going on in the town, set up the voting station, encourage others to have fun and get their work done, and more. Being mayor of BizTown was an amazing opportunity, and the staff and volunteers were so nice and encouraging. I hope that someday I can have a role or job just like this.?/span>

Next they planted a salsa kit which included heirloom cherry tomatoes and jalapenos peppers. The students spent three-four months noticing how the tomato plants grew more quickly than the peppers. Students were responsible for watering and adding nutrients to the garden. They were excited to see each flower turn into a tomato or pepper. After testing the ripeness of the tomatoes, students made salsa.

正规365体育投注Given the choice to start new plants, students chose to try more tomatoes so they can put together tomatoes, basil and mozzarella for Italian crostini.
