Oak Creek-Franklin schools pivot to all-remote learning

In a letter to families, the Oak Creek-Franklin Joint School District on Thursday night, Oct. 15 announced that all instruction will pivot to all-remote learning.

The decision came following a school board meeting, the district citing a "critical" COVID-19 disease burden in the area, according to a Medical College of Wisconsin update.

Hybrid instruction will end on Friday, Oct. 16 until gating criteria are met to return to the classroom.
