Beginning on Monday, March 16 - Friday, March 20, all Elmbrook Schools will move to virtual learning and no students will report to school.

On Thursday, March 12 Governor Evers declared a Public Health Emergency for the State of Wisconsin and called upon the people of Wisconsin to work aggressively to slow the spread of COVID-19. We take this responsibility seriously, as we consider the impact of our decisions on students and their learning, our families and staff and their personal and professional responsibilities, and the greater Elmbrook Community. As we learn from others' experiences with COVID-19 both across the country and around the world, we want to answer one question with confidence; 'Are we doing all that we can to keep our students, staff members, and community safe?'

To view the communication sent home to District families and staff please visit the Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage here.
