MILWAUKEE — Schools will be testing students and staff for COVID-19 before they head back to in-person learning next week.

The three MPS high schools listed below plan to offer testing from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

Pre-registration is required. These testing clinics are just for MPS students and staff.

Also on Wednesday, MPS will partner with the city health department to host a vaccination clinic.

It is free and open to the public. No appointment is necessary.

It's happening from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday at La Escuela Fratney.

MPS students are set to return to in-person learning on Jan. 18.
