Important District Update: January 2, 2022
Milwaukee Public Schools was scheduled to resume in-person learning January 4, 2022. Due to an influx of reported positive COVID-19 cases among district staff, as an emergency safety measure it is necessary for all MPS schools to transition to virtual learning beginning Tuesday, January 4, 2022. All district staff that are not in quarantine in accordance with MPS COVID-19 protocol are expected to report to their work location.
Beginning Tuesday, January 4, students should log into their learning platforms Google Classroom or SeeSaw to receive further instructions. Families may contact school leaders for assistance with technology needs.
MPS will continue providing expanded COVID-19 testing opportunities for MPS students and staff Monday, January 3, 2022 at six MPS locations from 9am-7pm. When in-person learning resumes, testing will continue to be available for students and staff at each school location.
As a service to students and families during virtual learning, student meals will be provided daily at various Stop, Grab & Go locations from 11am-1pm. More information on student meals will be posted on the district website, school websites, and social media.
All students, staff, and families should continue to follow public health guidance to help mitigate COVID-19:
- Wear a well-fitted face covering
- Practice social distancing
- Wash hands frequently
- Isolate and quarantine as necessary
- Practice respiratory etiquette
- Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces
- Stay home if sick
- Test if symptomatic or exposed to COVID-19
While it is our goal to resume in-person learning Monday, January 10, 2022, we will continue to assess the situation and provide updates as new information becomes available.
Dr. Keith P. Posley
Superintendent of Schools
