WAUKESHA — Schools across the Waukesha school district are closed for learning but the doors are open to help students and staff process Sunday evenings tragic events in downtown Waukesha.

Deputy superintendent Joe Koch Said multiple students we’re participating in the Christmas Parade when an SUV plowed through the crowd. To help students and staff process and cope with the tragic events, the district has counselors on hand at all school locations.

“We felt it would be important to have our doors open and be there for our kids and staff and community that did need support,” said Koch.

As a community comes together to try to process why, Koch said it’s important to support one another and hold your loved ones a little tighter

“Hug your loved ones, stay close to your family, support your neighbor, support each other,” said Koch.

Koch said they will assess the situation on Monday afternoon and decide sometime Monday evening weather school will be open on Tuesday
