Schools Remain Closed Following WI Supreme Court Action

May 14, 2020

You may be aware last night (May 13) the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down almost all of Gov. Ever's Safer at Home order. What does this mean for schools?

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has provided the following guidance:

"The Wisconsin Supreme Court yesterday struck down almost all of the “Safer at Home Order,” Executive Order 28. The Court did not, however, strike down the section of the Safer at Home Order that closed public and private K-12 schools. That section of the Safer at Home Order, as well as the defined terms referenced by that section, remain applicable and enforceable.

Therefore, the Court’s decision does not reopen schools, which remain physically closed through June 30th. The DPI will continue to provide updates as they become available."

We will continue to watch for guidance from DPI and our local Health Departments. Thank you for your patience as we work through the details and adjust our plans accordingly.
