Middleton-Cross Plains parents surveyed about return to school

A little more than half of parents in the Middleton-Cross Plains School District would be comfortable sending their children back to in-person classes in the fall if public health officials said it was safe.

The results come from a survey presented Monday evening to the school board.

Fifty-four percent of the parents said yes, but they still have concerns.

Of those planning to have their children at home learning virtually, 66 percent said they would like to eventually return to in-person classes if safe.


Among the responses:

  • Those planning to keep a child home often say a vaccine must be available before sending a child back, while others won't send their child if they have to wear a mask.
  • Plenty of reservations about social distancing, hand washing and masks not being enforced
  • Lots of requests for class sizes to be reduced to practice social distancing.
  • Those with no reservations often indicated virtual learning experience wasn't great and can't continue to keep children home when they have to work.
  • Some wonder if schools might look quite different than it had previously if more children will want to stay home.

The district currently is evaluating what they believe to be the best options and will present the top three to the school board on July 20, according to a district spokesperson.

The parent survey was conducted June 20-30 and can be found here

The district also is sending out a survey to staff.
