Royall adjusts to latest state order

Like other school districts, Royall put together a new game plan after Gov. Tony Evers announced Wisconsin’s ‘safer-at-home’ order Tuesday.

The order prohibits all nonessential travel, with some exceptions, until April 24. As a result, all Royall custodians, paraprofessionals and secretaries were instructed not to report to the school, other than those who are assisting with food delivery. Teaching staff will continue to teach online from home if possible.

Superintendent Mark Gruen said he interpreted the board of education’s motion last week as indicating the support staff would be paid in full through the entire ‘safer-at-home’ period. The board will review the matter at its meeting April 27.

The district office will continue to operate, principals Darcy Uppena and Scott Uppena will continue to report to work, and buildings and ground director Tim Marshall will do walk-throughs in the morning, but otherwise mostly work from home. Also, Justin Howe, director of technology, will be at school to assist with online learning.
