Face Coverings

Thank you for your continued support of the district’s face covering requirement. As noted in the Parent Reentry FAQ and student/parent handbooks, face coverings are required and will remain required unless otherwise communicated. We have been impressed with how well students have acclimated to wearing face coverings and following other mitigation measures implemented under the guidance of Waukesha County Health Department and the Stay Safe to Stay Open campaign. These additional health precautions are designed to keep the virus from spreading within our community and help our schools stay open for in-person learning.
