WAUWATOSA — The Wauwatosa School District voted early Tuesday morning to have a 'phased-in' plan for returning to school.

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.
