Jan 6, 2022 Hello and Happy New Year! Because there was enough interest to pursue a vaccination clinic here at Kickapoo, Vernon County has agreed to allow Kickapoo Schools to host a vaccination clinic on January 13th. However, we need to have 40 students committed to getting vaccinated here on that day. We will also have the booster shot available for 16 and older if your child is ready for the booster. The booster shot for students ages 12-15 may be available, but we were not able to confirm that yet. Please fill out this survey so I can confirm the 40 interested individuals to Vernon County Health Dept. and secure our vaccination clinic. With the prospective date of January 13th fast approaching, this survey will close Friday at 5:00 pm. I will send a notification of results along with any needed forms and further directions on Monday afternoon. Remember, vaccinations are not required to attend school, this is just an opportunity for those who wish to vaccinate their children. Thank you! Mrs. Johnson https://forms.gle/wwG3Ry3nG9tZhaXX8

Dear Families, We have recently become aware of a troubling post that has been shared nationally this week on the social media platform TikTok. The post refers to a threat to school safety “for every school in the USA, even elementary,” on Friday, December 17. The post did not originate in our school district and is part of a national TikTok trend. While we do not believe the threat to be credible and no direct threat has been made to Kickapoo Area Schools, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking it seriously. We work closely with the Vernon County Sheriff's Department. They are aware of this challenge and will have a presence at our school tomorrow. As always, any threats made to the school will be taken seriously by Kickapoo Area Schools and the Vernon County Sheriff's Department. This situation serves as a good example of why it is important to avoid sharing posts online that refer to school safety threats. Even if they are not credible threats, they can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety for our students, families, and staff. We ask our families to monitor their children’s social media activity and speak with them about proper behavior online. If you or your child become aware of any potential threat posted to social media or anywhere else, please notify a school staff member, trusted adult, or the Vernon County Sheriff's Dept. right away. As always, thank you for your partnership as we work to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment for our students. Sincerely, Doug Olsen Kickapoo Area School District Administrator
