Superintendent's Corner
Happy snow day! We hope that our decision to not hold classes has kept everyone safe and warm! I thought this would be a great opportunity to remind our families of our closing procedure.

The decision to close will be made by 5 AM and will be communicated in the following ways:
  • An Infinite Campus message
  • A post on our website's homepage
  • By these TV stations:
  • TMJ4
  • Fox 6 Now
  • WISN 12
  • CBS 58

In the future, if we decide to conduct school but you feel the conditions are too dangerous, we respect your judgement and your decision to keep your child at home.

Please consider attending the first of our referendum informational sessions on Thursday of next week at Hales Corners Elementary at 6:30 PM. A list of upcoming referendum events can be found on our Referendum 2018 page.

Feel free to contact me at lolson@whitnall.com and follow me on Twitter !
