WHITEFISH BAY — Whitefish Bay High School will be going virtual Monday after an increase in COVID-19 cases and close contact quarantines.

The school district made the announcement on Sunday, saying all classes will be online through Nov. 2, saying they don't have enough "sufficient staffing to continue effective in-person learning operations."

Superintendent Dr. John Thomsen said in a letter to parents that they have considered all other options and decided that this was the best one.

"At this juncture, the High School plans to return to our blended model of in-person learning on November 2nd. Should there be a change to this plan, you will be notified as soon as possible," said Thomsen in the letter.

Cumberland Elementary, Richards Elementary, and WFB Middle School will continue in the blended model schedule for the week, as shown below:

  • Mon, Oct. 26 - Cohort A In-Person Learning
  • Tue, Oct. 27 - Cohort B In-Person Learning
  • Wed, Oct. 28 AM - Asynchronous Learning for all students & 4K-12 Parent Teacher Conf. as scheduled
  • Thurs, Oct. 29 - 4K-12 Parent Teacher Conf. as scheduled
  • Fri, Oct 30 - Non-Instructional Day/Students off and half-day Staff Professional Learning
