The 2020–21 school year got underway on August 17 with students engaging in virtual learning. MPS early start schools across the city, including all high schools, middle schools, and select elementary schools, were back in session. At Milwaukee School of Languages, virtual students were welcomed with a visit from Superintendent Dr. Keith P. Posley, guests, and media.
Dr. Posley, Milwaukee School of Languages Principal Dr. Juan Baez, and MTEA President Amy Mizialko offered remarks to wish success to students and emphasize the importance of a quality education during the pandemic.
“As a district, we are committed to providing a top-notch education,” said Posley. “Our students have Chromebooks and our teachers are prepared for virtual learning. This plan will optimize the health and safety of our students and staff until we can all safely return to our schools.”
MPS schools on the traditional calendar (most elementary schools) will begin Tuesday, September 1. Families who have questions about start dates should contact their child’s school. View all school calendars on the Student Days Off web page.
Families are reminded to help their students be ready for learning.
