To respond to a heat advisory issued for Milwaukee on July 18 and 19, Milwaukee Public Schools is making important changes to the Summer Academy and Summer Recreation sites and programs.
All students in Summer Academy should report to their regular summer sites. After students are served breakfast, students from select schools will be bused to another MPS location for the remainder of the session.
Students who normally go home after lunch will be bused back to their regular school site; those students who are normally bused home will continue home on the bus. Students who normally stay for the afternoon extended care program will be bused back to their regular school site at 5:00; those students who are normally bused home will continue home on the bus.
Some Summer Recreation Child Care Camp, Community Learning Centers (CLCs), Safe Places, and Summer Enrichment Camps will be relocated.
For a list of all site changes to Summer Academy and Summer Recreation, please see the list below.
Summer Academy field trips that take place at air-conditioned off-site locations will take place as scheduled. Outdoor field trips may be cancelled—families should check with their child’s program for details.
