Thank you to our staff and families for coming together during this unprecedented time! We have all seen firsthand just how incredible our community is as we navigate these once-in-a-lifetime circumstances.
We are incredibly proud of the efforts our administrative leaders and teachers made to quickly devise a plan for virtual learning and put it in place with the help of our entire staff - IT, Buildings & Grounds, Nutrition Services, Health, Student Services - it was all hands on deck and KM is truly shining during a trying time.
We will all get through this together!
May 22, 2020 UPDATEThe State Supreme Court struck down the Safer at Home Emergency Order 28 - except for the closure of schools for pupil instruction and extra curricular activities. According to the definition of Community Education, specified in State Statute 120.13(19) the school closure does not include Community Ed-related activities. School grounds remain closed through June 30, 2020. Clubs and recreational groups under Community Education that choose to operate are expected to do so under current guidelines that have been shared by the Waukesha County Health Department. They cannot operate on school grounds. To be clear, the District is not saying that these organizations should commence activities. We are saying that these organizations are not restricted by the current order 28, as it remains.The graduation ceremony for the Kettle Moraine campus will be held as a virtual ceremony, taking place on June 14. The guidance we have received from Waukesha County Health department is to avoid gatherings of 50 people and to hold a virtual graduation ceremony. This affirms our decision. If guidance from the Waukesha County Health Department allows, we will have an in-person celebration on August 8.The District's first priority is always the safety of our students, staff and families. We would like nothing more than a return to normal like everyone else and we will do so by adhering to the expert guidance coming from the Waukesha County Health Department.

This communication was sent to state superintendents regarding the Wisconsin Supreme Court's decision on the state's Safer at Home order. The court ruling changed many directives, but schools remain closed.
Dear District Administrators,
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 closed through June 30th, the end of the current school year. The DPI will continue to provide updates as they become available.
Mike Thompson, PhD
Deputy State Superintendent
