Summer Programming

Summer Programming 2021

Registration is Now Closed

Families were sent confirmation of placement in summer programming based on registration in late April.

Parents: Offerings are different from past years, so please read the descriptions fully so that you know what options exist for your child and sign up for those that will be the best fit.

Camp SOAR

  • Two 3-week long sessions, students will be able to attend only one session

    • Session 1: June 14th thru July 1st

    • Session 2: July 12th thru July 29th

  • Days: Mondays thru Thursdays

  • Hours for students: 9am-2:45 pm

  • Classroom size of 5-6 students who are 17 years and younger

  • Enrollment will be limited and based on available staffing. If more students sign up than we have capacity for, a lottery will take place.

  • Confirmation of registration will occur by May 1st

  • Transportation will occur from one location in six of our districts (not WDP)

  • Families will have the option to sign up for “Supplementary Instruction” while their child is at Camp SOAR (see information below)

  • Fee for Camp SOAR:

    • $300 for the 3 week session for Brown County Residents

    • $575 for the 3 week session for Non-Brown County Residents using busing

    • $470 for the 3 week session for Non-Brown County Residents not using busing

Supplementary Instruction

  • One DPI-licensed special education teacher will provide instruction to students whose families sign up for it focused on IEP goals and/or targets from the school year. Performance data will be kept and provided at the end of the term. This is to supplement in-person instruction that was lost during periods of school closure during the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years. It is available to all students who attended SHS in 2020-21 and will attend in 2021-22.

  • Students attending Camp SOAR

    • Supplementary Instruction will be provided while the student is at Camp SOAR

  • Students not attending Camp SOAR

    • Supplementary Instruction will be provided at alternate times, but during times when school is in session during the six weeks of Camp SOAR. The length of instruction for each child will be determined once the registration window has closed, but is anticipated to be less than one hour per week for students selecting this option.

  • The amount of instructional time will be determined based on the number of students who sign up. It is anticipated that this would be for up to one hour per week for three weeks in duration.

  • There is no cost to families for this instruction

Sensory Courtyard Saturday

  • Four Saturdays during the summer will be designated for open sensory courtyard time when families can bring their SHS student to school to play in the sensory courtyard and/or playground.

  • SHS Staff will be present and monitor, but parents will be responsible for supervising their children.

  • This is available for students who were primary-age in the 20-21 school year (i.e., Morrissey, Stonelake, Dudek, Jensky/Zabel, Huettner, Manders, Mendolla, Perry, Lunn, Larson, Vande Voort, Sukowaty).

  • Families must register by April 15th and RSVP ahead of time so the exact number of participants is known for each opportunity.

  • There is no cost to families for this opportunity

Teen Social Outings

  • Four outdoor outings will be planned for teen and young adult SHS students during the summer.

  • SHS Staff will organize and be present during the outings, but parents will be responsible for supervising their children.

  • This programming is available to students who were intermediate age and older during the 2020-21 school year (i.e., M Vertz, Gerhardt, Laatsch, Senft, J Vertz, Fick, Gayhart, Gehring, Holten, Fry, Berg, Sagrillo).

  • Families must register by April 15th and RSVP ahead of time so the exact number of participants is known for each opportunity.

  • There is no cost to families for this opportunity
