The Wauwatosa School District recently implemented new guidelines for when to keep your child home from school. For more information, click here.

Parking/Drop-off/Pick-up

Please read the parking reminders for drop-off and dismissal below:

  • NEVER stop on the East side of 68th Street. There is NO stopping or parking on the East side of the road.

  • Do not park where you see orange traffic cones.

  • Only use the three (15 minute) parking spots at the corner of 68th Street/Garfield Avenue. Cars should NEVER be parked or stopped on the East side of 68th Street near the front door.

  • DO NOT turn around in our neighbors' driveways. Be patient and go around the block.

  • IF you are using the hug and go on 67th Street, do not leave your car. Stay in your car and a staff member will call your child down.


Thank you for your cooperation.

Cold Weather Reminder

Just a reminder to send your child(ren) with a coat, gloves, hat, snow pants and boots everyday. Please have all items labeled with your child's name including their boots. The only time we have indoor recess is if the temperature or wind chill is below 0 degrees or it is raining outside.
