In these unprecedented times, we first and foremost want to say thank you! We are grateful that you share our belief in the difference the arts can make in the life of a child and that you have chosen the Wilson Center as one of your arts education partners by reserving tickets to a performance in our 2020/2021 Beyond the Classroom Performance Series for Students or attended a Beyond the Classroom performance in the 2019/2020 season.

We pride ourselves on making Beyond the Classroom an opportunity to bring literature, history, dance, and music to life on our stages in ways that vividly enrich students' classroom experiences. With the well-being of student groups as our top priority and the understanding that COVID-19 may remain a concern for our community in the months ahead, in partnership with our national touring artists, we have made the difficult decision to pause our Beyond the Classroom daytime performance series for the 2020/2021 season.

As we create social distancing practices and implement additional health and safety measures in our venue, our arts education team will be exploring alternate programs and opportunities that we can bring to classrooms throughout our community in the months ahead.

Thank you again for your support, flexibility, and understanding during these times. In the wake of COVID-19, the power of the arts has never been more vital, and while there are still challenges ahead, the Wilson Center is committed to poised to respond to those challenges as we reimagine the ways that we can continue to bring the arts to our community!

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.
