Milwaukee Public Schools employees have returned to work Tuesday after weeks of being out due to the coronavirus pandemic.

MPS Superintendent of Schools Dr. Keith Posley says that health precautions will be implemented in order to keep all staff safe and healthy.

"We are confident that we can return to work with new safety measures in place as many other organizations have in recent days," said Dr. Posley in a release. "There will be some differences in how we work and interact together but I am confident that we can adapt to this new normal and continue our mission to educate the children in Milwaukee Public Schools."

Those safety measures include:

  • All MPS buildings will remain closed to the public. Visitors are prohibited.
  • Torn, dirty or frayed clothing will not be allowed
  • Personal protective equipment will be available
  • Signs will be posted with maximum capacities for conference rooms, public spaces, elevators, offices and restrooms
  • The cafeteria will remain closed
