Since the West Allis Rec department has decided that all parks and facilities will be closed for the summer, we feel fortunate that we can still offer a summer program to keep our kids engaged in healthy, meaningful activities.  

As we progress through the challenges of COVID-19, we continue to make decisions in the best interest of the health and safety of our staff, students, parents, and community.  At this time, we are following the Wisconsin Department of Health Services recommendations.   As a result, we are offering a virtual summer school this year. This gives us the unique opportunity to tailor curriculum to individual student interests. 

We are considering a few different models for this year’s program. 

  • One model would give students the chance to pursue another passion project(s) where they chose the subject and activities they participate in. Our teachers would then work with students to infuse math and reading into those activities.   

  • Another would be a more traditional model where students would get direct online instruction in reading and math. 

  • Or a hybrid of the two

In the registration form there is a question about your family’s program format preference- ie passion project vs traditional. We will use those responses to create a program that fits the needs of our community. Please note *what you chose on that question doesn’t guarantee that choice. 

Virtual summer school is designed to improve reading/writing and/or math performance while engaging students with daily meetings, at-home projects, and computer-based programs.

We will be providing computer devices and supplies on a TBD drive-up, pick-up day.
