School Closure Update

March 17, 2020 

Dear Peace family, 

As promised, I will try to inform you as soon as possible with more information about this changing situation.  
On Friday, Governor Evers closed all K-12 schools from March 18th until April 6th.  This afternoon, Gov. Evers announced gatherings should be limited to 10 people and that bars and restaurants would close at 5pm this evening.  Included in the executive order is a change in the school closure language.  Instead of listing April 6th as the end of the closure, the order has changed for schools to be closed “for the duration of the public health emergency or until a subsequent order lifts this specific restriction”.  
What does that mean for us?  School is closed until Gov. Evers tells us otherwise.  This could be April 6th, or it could be later.  As our teachers plan to deliver distance learning we will be mentally preparing to do so for a longer period of time.  
The next few weeks will certainly be new and changing times for us.  I will do my best to keep you informed.  
Looking for some calm in the midst of this uncertainty?  Read Psalm 46 which reminds us that our God is our fortress and strength.  Pray God brings peace to this situation and keeps our Peace family safe and healthy.  
In Christ,
Principal Ben Washburn
