Health and Safety

The health and safety of the entire University School of Milwaukee community was at the forefront of the school’s 2020–21 reopening plan, shared with families in August of 2020, and it continued to be the primary driver in all decision making. The primary goal of every decision that was made was to keep students, faculty, and staff as safe as possible while on campus while doing everything possible to prevent any spread of the COVID-19 virus in our community.

USM worked closely with the North Shore Health Department as the school monitored the COVID-19 data in the area, and also worked with other area health departments as needed. In addition, an internal USM health and safety team worked closely with medical professionals in various fields to assist the school in creating and modifying policies and protocols.
