NOW: MPS welcomes back 4-8 grades Monday

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Milwaukee Public Schools is welcoming back grades 4-8 into the classroom on Monday, April 19.

This comes after the district welcomed back Pre-K-3rd grade on Wednesday, April 14.

On April 14, there were widespread bus route cancellations across the district creating issues for the return.

When it comes to COVID-19 testing, the district says ten-percent of the student body, with consent forms, will be tested randomly every other week, regardless of whether they are very young or have special needs.

“We do want to make the testing available to all students that are available to participate," said Adria Maddaleni, MPS chief human resources officer. "If they aren’t, and they can’t at that capacity, we would not require them to perform that test. “

For students who cannot self-administer, school officials would contact the family on a case-by-case basis.
