Summer Learning Academy Update

Due to the change in dates for SLA as well as revisions in programming and course offerings, there will be a new registration process which interested students and families must complete, even if you had previously registered during the March registration window. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Currently, we are planning for online SLA registration to be completed via Infinite Campus Monday, June 1 through Friday, June 5. **Exceptions to this are noted below for Muskego Power, Fab Lab, and the July Swim Lessons*. Please refer to this letter for important details.

Parent Resources

Make sure to review the Parent FAQ document frequently where you will find answers to the most commonly asked questions during this time. Updates will be highlighted in blue throughout the upcoming weeks. Along with the Parent FAQ document, our student services staff have created a presentation to provide resources on how to help your children cope with mental health. You will find fact sheets as well as age specific information in the presentation.

Yearbooks are coming!

We will be distributing yearbooks at the event on June 9th, from 4:00pm - 6:00pm.


If you are unable to make it at that time, you are welcome to stop by anytime between 8:00am and 3:00pm on Wednesday, June 10th for Library Drop Off & Pick Up.

Google Meet: NEW Gridview extension

We've heard from some of you about issues with GRIDVIEW on Google Meet lately.

This is the new Gridview extension we are recommending everyone use, including your students.

This is the old Gridview extension we are recommending you uninstall.


Here's how to tell the difference/which one you have:

1) The original/bad "Grid View" extension (4-squares icon) is the one causing the problem.

2) This new/good "Grid View" extension (9-shares icon) is the new one that users should install.
