MPS students prepare to return for in-person learning

Roadmap to ReadinessMilwaukee Public Schools teachers and staff are looking forward to welcoming students back to school buildings in April! The Milwaukee Board of School Directors has approved a schedule for students to return to in-person learning.

  • April 14, 2021: Students in K3 through grade 3 begin in-person learning (attending Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week).
  • April 19, 2021: Students in grades 4 through 8 begin in-person learning.
  • April 26, 2021: Students in grade 12 and students who are in danger of failing begin in-person learning. Students in grades 9, 10, and 11 will remain virtual.
  • Note that all students will learn virtually on Wednesdays beginning April 21.


Starting the week of April 19, students will attend class in-person on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Wednesdays will be virtual for all students.

A survey was shared with families to indicate their preference for virtual or in-person learning. Results of the survey reveal that 59 percent of students will rejoin their classmates at school.

Survey results by school are available at for download.

MPS is committed to success for every child. We look forward to seeing students in-person and virtually!
