Milwaukee Public Schools to remain closed for the remainder of the school year
Gov. Tony Evers gives order for all Wisconsin K–12 schools to remain closed
“Our priority remains focused on the health and safety of all students, families, and staff,” MPS Superintendent Dr. Keith P. Posley said. “We will continue to serve and educate our students through our online platform while adhering to the guidance of our state leaders and health officials.”
Milwaukee Public Schools has already started the process of distributing Chromebooks to students and providing new enrichment materials at our Stop, Grab, and Go sites throughout the city. MPS will continue to serve meals at those sites for the remainder of the school year.
Dates of device distribution are below. School staff will work with families to determine a time for pick up.
- April 16 & 17 for high school students
- April 20 for middle school students
- April 22, 23, 24 for elementary school students
On Tuesday, the district launched its Online Learning Resources for students and families to continue learning remotely. MPS is providing new online learning opportunities to reinforce academic skills, minimize instructional loss, and provide routine to help students stay engaged and connected. Educators and staff are currently supporting students with online learning and reviewing grades to ensure they meet academic proficiency and complete graduation requirements.
