• 2021-2022 Academic Year Planning

  • The D.C. Everest District is currently planning for the 2021-2022 school year with the aim of returning all students to five days of in-person instruction each week following a normal school calendar. We realize families have questions concerning what next year will look like. We have done our best to answer these questions below based on the information we have at this time. 

    Please note these plans are subject to change based on the levels of COVID, the prevalence of new COVID variants, the rate of vaccination in our community, and revised guidance from federal, state, and local health officials. To keep our families apprised of plans for the 2021-2022 school year, this webpage will be updated as new information becomes available and monthly updates will be provided. As we near the start of the 2021-22 school year, schools will reach out to families with specific back-to-school information.

    K-12 iPad Pick Up Dates are August 3-5!

    We are offering 3 days for families to pick up new student iPads if they did not get them through summer school or AP classes. If your child still has their old iPad, that device will need to be returned to pick up their new iPad.

    If you are not able or interested in picking up your device during these dates, students will be able to get them at their individual schools at the start of the school year.

    Pick up location:  Idea Charter School, 4704 Camp Phillips Road, Schofield, WI 54476

    Dates and times: August 3, 4 and 5 from 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM

    Please provide the information below when you arrive:

    • Your child's name: student.firstName student.lastName
    • Your child's grade: student.grade
    • Your child's school: sch.name
    • Your child's student ID: student.studentNumber

    Construction may be happening in the area but access to the building will be available.

    Students in Everest Virtual Academy and Idea will be notified separately of their device pick up time and location.
