Parents with students at Crescent Elementary School in Rhinelander may pick their children up Friday due to the high absentee rate.

The District said in a media release that they have contacted parents/guardians to inform them that they are welcome to voluntarily come and pick their child up and take them home, even if the child is not ill. The district said the day will not count against the 10 parent excused days.

School closure is important to reduce contact among children and stop the spread of the illness.

The students that cannot be picked up will take the bus home at the end of the day. We will keep your child safe. Your child’s health and safety is our number one priority.

The Crescent Elementary School based CHAMPS Program will also be cancelled Friday.

Thursday, the district announced Pelican Elementary School would be close Friday, also due to illness.
