  • Grafton Summer Learning Academy- VIRTUAL LEARNING ONLY
    After careful consideration and in the interest of keeping everyone safe, the Grafton Summer Learning Academy will be offered through VIRTUAL LEARNING ONLY.

    This difficult decision was made after recent guidance from the Ozaukee/Washington County Health Department, the State Department of Health Services, and Grafton School District's medical advisor all recommended that in-person summer school sessions not happen. Therefore, the Grafton School District will follow these guidelines and not hold in-person summer school this year.

    A number of teachers will be offering virtual enrichment classes for sessions B & C. Parents will need to re-register for all virtual enrichment classes. More information will be sent out on Wednesday, June 3rd. 
    For families that do choose to participate in virtual classes, if you are currently in grade 3 - 7, please keep the district device that is currently loaned out to your child if you have one. All paid fees will be reimbursed to you by crediting your family food service account by mid-summer. Non-district families will receive a check in the mail.

    Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work through these unprecedented times. Please do not hesitate to email Joy Steltenpohl if you have any questions.

  • Temporary Food Benefits for Children
    Since schools are closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, children who usually get free or reduced price school meals through the National School Lunch Program can instead get temporary food benefits. These benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT. Children can get these benefits in addition to any other school meals they are getting. 
    The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is automatically providing these benefits to most children who usually get free or reduced price school meals based on information they have on file. If the Wisconsin Department of Health Services is able to verify your information, the benefits will automatically be provided on your QUEST card if you have one or on a P-EBT card you will get in the mail. You can use these cards like a debit card to buy food. You will get a letter in the mail letting you know if you are automatically getting the benefits. You may also get an email in addition to the mailed letter. 
    If the Wisconsin Department of Health Services does not have your information or is not able to verify your information, you will need to apply for the benefits. If you have not been notified that you are automatically getting these benefits, please complete this application. You must apply for the benefits by June 30.

    It is very important that the information you provide for each child who usually gets free or reduced price school meals exactly matches the information your school has on file. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services will look at that information to make sure you can get the benefits. If you apply and your information cannot be verified, please check with Kari Wall, the District's Nutrition Financial Coordinator, at to make sure your information is correct. We will work with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to make sure the correct information is on file.
