Reminder! Update Demographic and Emergency Contact Information in Infinite Campus

When the school district switched over to Infinite Campus(IC) this summer all emergency contact information was lost. If you have not done so already, please go into your IC account parent portal ASAP and check your families demographic information (phone/address/email address change, etc) and enter in emergency contact information.

If you have not created an account for Infinite Campus yet and do not think you received an email, please check your spam folder. You should have received an activation code from the district.

All students in grades SK-5 will take the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) test in math next week. We administer MAP to determine instructional level and to measure

academic growth throughout the school year and also year to year in the areas of Reading and Math.

MAP tests are unique in that they are taken on a computer and can adapt to the child’s learning level. As a result, each student has the same opportunity to succeed and maintain a positive attitude toward testing. These tests are aligned to the Wisconsin State Standards and provide valuable instructional information to assist teachers with your child’s learning in the classroom.

For more information about MAP, please contact your child's teacher or can click HERE and learn more about it.

Attendance Reminder

If your child(ren) will be late or absent from school, please be sure to leave a voicemail on the absence/illness line (414)773-1802 or email Mrs. Gordon hillgobr@wauwatosa.k12.wi.us and your child's teacher.

Thank you!
