Under the new plan, all students will start the year entirely virtually. The earliest opportunity to go back to school in-person will be September 21st.
The district will monitor COVID-19 statistics when making decisions on the next steps including a hybrid of in-person and virtual learning.
Ultimately, the district hopes it can resume regular in-person teaching five days a week. Not all parents think this is a good idea though.
"I don't feel comfortable sending my child back to school when I don't even know what metrics you are using," Amanda Etim, a Wauwatosa resident said.
Whenever students to go back to school, everyone will be required to wear a mask. If anyone tests positive for the coronavirus, they will have to stay at home for 10 days.
