2020-21 School Year
Please visit our Reopening Plan web page for information related to the 2020-21 school year.
Building + Facilities Usage
Our District buildings are currently open, and summer programming - including the Recreation Department’s Summer Adventure Club and Right at School Summer Camp - will be held at various District facilities. All individuals who wish to enter a District building must comply with our Visitor Guidelines, which include wearing a mask and completing a form prior to entry. Individuals who wish to use a District facility must comply with our Athletic Department Guidelines, which include wearing a mask when not engaged in physical activity and maintaining social distancing practices.
In the event an individual who has entered a District building contracts COVID-19, the data collected via this form will allow us to identify and notify individuals who may have been exposed. Within 24 hours of receiving confirmation of a positive COVID-19 case, the District will send letters to individuals who have been identified as low and medium risk. Sample letters can be found in the Resources menu on the right side of this page. Individuals identified as high risk will be called via phone by the Wauwatosa Health Department.
Definitions of low, medium and high risk are as follows:
LOW RISK: Any individual in the building at the same time as the COVID-19 positive individual.
MEDIUM RISK: Any individual who came in direct contact with COVID-19 positive individual (less than 6 feet apart for 15 minutes, or depending on the situation, 15 minutes in the same room/location).
HIGH RISK: Almost exclusively those living within the same house at the COVID-19 positive individual. Other examples include an individual who was coughed on, sneezed on, or who came into direct contact with saliva of a COVID-19 positive individual.
If you have any questions, please contact District Nurse Katelyn Lasse via phone at 414-773-1961 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Slow the Spread of COVID-19
We all play a role in reducing coronavirus instances in our community. We encourage everyone to practice every day preventative measures including:
- Wear a mask or other face covering, unless advised otherwise by a medical professional. Click here to access valuable mask-wearing tips!
- Practice social distancing and remain at least 6 feet away from non-members of your household.
- Wash your hands regularly, especially after using the restroom and before preparing or consuming food. Using soap and hot water, wash for at least 20 seconds. Be sure to also wash your fingertips.
- Avoid coughing or sneezing into your hands or in the air. Always try to cough or sneeze into a tissue, and then throw the tissue away. If you don’t have a tissue, cough/sneeze into your elbow.
- As much as you can, avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.
- If children are feeling sick, please keep them home from school and/or other activities. Allow them some time to feel better so that they do not risk infecting others.
