School Day Experience

University School of Milwaukee made a concerted effort to try to minimize changes to the typical school-day experience for students and teachers, starting with the daily academic schedule, which still follows the regular eight-day letter calendar schedule for classes. Although the division-specific dress codes were left in place, including for distance learners, they were relaxed somewhat for students, faculty, and staff for the 2020–21 school year.

The lunch experience was also modified for all students, faculty, and staff with these individuals choosing from various hot and cold items served a la carte by dining staff either in the Palermo Hall servery or delivered directly to classrooms for distribution. Assigned seats for lunch in various spaces around campus also helped to ensure appropriate physical distancing remained in place during lunch. In addition, modifications were made to other school-day experience, such as student lockers and cubbies, study hall spaces, school store access, and more.
