Consolidated Elementary in Milton to shift to virtual learning due to COVID outbreak

MILTON, Wis. – Consolidated Elementary School in Milton will switch to virtual learning effective Friday, November 5 due to a COVID-19 outbreak, Milton School District officials announced Thursday.

Classes will be canceled Friday for all students, and Monday, November 8, will be an asynchronous learning day, the district said.

The district expects students to return to in-person classes on Thursday, November 18.

Officials say that a significant number of Consolidated Elementary students have had to be isolated or quarantined because of COVID-19, leading to the move. The decision to move to virtual learning was made after officials spoke with the Rock County Health Department.

To support learning during virtual instruction, parents and guardians of Consolidated students have been asked to come to the school between noon and 4 p.m. Friday to pick up students’ iPads.

Those unable to pick up an iPad on Friday should contact Consolidated Principal Sarah Stuckey by email to make alternative arrangements.

No other Milton schools have moved to virtual learning at this time.
