Elmbrook 2020-21 Learning Hub

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.

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.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) updated its 'Close Contact' guidelines to "Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated." This change matches Elmbrook's practice which has been guided by the Wisconsin Department of Health and Waukesha County Health Department.
