March 20, 2020 – Washington Co., WI – State Senator Duey Stroebel issued a release this week commending high schools in his district for moving quickly to implement virtual learning as schools closed because of COVID-19.
As COVID-19 closes schools across Wisconsin, I wanted to highlight school districts in the 20th Senate District that are continuing to educate students using the valuable taxpayer resources that we have entrusted to them. The 20th Senate District includes most of Ozaukee and Washington Counties as well as portions of Calumet, Fond du Lac, and Sheboygan Counties.
The Hartford J1, Holy Hill Area, Northern Ozaukee, Port Washington-Saukville, Plymouth, Random Lake, and Slinger School Districts have already started a virtual learning program for their students in reaction to the current environment.
I applaud their preparation to ensure our students have the resources they need to succeed. I look forward to other districts joining their ranks to minimize the interruption to our children’s education.

In Jackson, Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School immediately had students on board with virtual learning. Students and parents were informed of the program Monday. Since then classes have been in session along with deadlines for homework. Below is an example of Friday’s class schedule as all students access the website to continue their education from home and not fall behind with assignments or educational /college goals.
Parents raved about the dedication of staff and aggressive approach to support their child’s education.
