With the Thanksgiving Holiday approaching, Waukesha County Public Health, in partnership with area schools, asks you
to evaluate your holiday plans to ensure they are safe and will not increase the spread COVID-19 in the community.
Thank you for your continued support and grace during this difficult time. As we work to stabilize our education system and sustain all teaching and learning options for our families, staff, and students over the long-term, we have an important announcement regarding a calendar adjustment post-Thanksgiving.
Last evening the District's Governance Team (Board President & Vice President, and Superintendent) endorsed the Medical Advisory Board's recommendation to change November 30 - December 4 from in-person learning to virtual learning for all students and staff. This action was endorsed by the full Board of Education (7-0 vote) at an earlier meeting, and extends temporary virtual learning from Monday, November 23 - Friday, December 4.

On Saturday, November 14, the Brookfield East Girls Swimming and Diving Team won their second straight Division 1 state championship while setting three WIAA records in the process.
On Wednesday, November 18, all in-person learning at Brookfield Elementary will transition to temporary virtual learning. This change is a result of the school's attendance rate falling below the 80% threshold established by the District's Governance Team (Superintendent, Board Leadership) and the Medical Advisory Board.

When school is closed due to inclement weather, the district notifies parents, students and staff in a variety of ways. While often redundant, student safety is our primary concern requiring a blanketed approach to informing all families. Typically, a decision to close school is made before 5:30am in order to give parents, students and the bus company enough time to respond.
Last evening the District's Governance Team approved the Medical Advisory Board's recommendation to change November 23 and 24 school days from in-person learning to virtual for all students and staff. The primary reason for this change is to limit contact tracing efforts over the Thanksgiving weekend. Over the past two weeks our contact tracing team has averaged 80-120 contacts per day.

This message is to inform you that beginning this Friday, November 13, we will transition all in-person learning at Burleigh to temporary virtual learning. This change has been necessitated by our school’s attendance rate falling below the 80% threshold established by the District’s Governance Team (Superintendent, Board Leadership) and the Medical Advisory Board. This transition also includes Elmbrook’s Preschool and Early Childhood Programs, which are both located at Burleigh.
Two seats will be open for school board members to be elected on April 6, 2021, one in Election Area IV (roughly the District's southeast quadrant) and one At-Large seat. Winners of these seats will serve three-year terms beginning April 26, 2021 through April 21, 2024.
