For this entire school year we have done everything possible to keep our students and staff safe while prioritizing in-person learning. Of all the safety and risk mitigation measures and efforts implemented, none has been more impactful than masking. The science and the data support this, and we stand behind it. We will continue to follow the science and rely on our Medical Advisory Board to help guide policies and procedures. To be clear, regardless of the political action in Madison, masks will be required in all schools for anyone entering a facility in the School District of ElmbrookRead more for additional information.

The 4K offering will be tuition-free and hosted at each District elementary school.
