Health and Safety
The health and safety of the entire University School of Milwaukee community is at the forefront of our 2021–22 back-to-school plan, first shared with families on Friday, Aug. 13, and it continues to be the primary driver in all decision making. Our primary goal is to keep students, faculty, and staff as safe as possible when on campus, while doing everything possible to prevent any spread of the COVID-19 virus in our community.
We work closely with the North Shore Health Department to monitor the latest COVID-19 data in the area, and we also work with other area health departments as needed. In addition, an internal USM health and safety team, which includes its head school nurse, Kathleen Roebber, works closely with medical professionals in various fields to assist the school in creating and modifying policies and protocols.
