Schools K-12 Covid Plan Workshop


The Milwaukee Health Department and local educators present a workshop on Covid-19 school plans and requirements.

Hear from Deputy Commissioner Marlaina Jackson, Patricia Hoben of Cities Forward Collective and Joan Shafer of Seton Catholic Schools.

The City of Milwaukee Health Department (MHD) acknowledges the decision to open schools is an emotional one for all parties involved. Children and their safety and development are our priority during this pandemic. We will be doing weekly school safety plan updates on Fridays in order to keep the community apprised of the school plans submitted and approved. As of September 3, MHD has received 54 total complete plans. In order for a plan to be complete, it must include a MHD K-12 Safety Assessment Checklist. 

MHD is continuing to review COVID-19 safety plans for schools that are located in the City of Milwaukee and desire to have options aside from virtual. Plans are reviewed in the order that they are received and prioritized by the open date. Schools will receive an approval letter from the Commissioner of Health. Next update will be on Friday, September 11, 2020.
