Important News

  • Summer School Update:

    This year, the Port Washington-Saukville School District will be conducting a remote/virtual summer school program. The program will provide a boost for your child to prepare him or her for the fall.

    High School Information

    No registration will be required from the student/parent/guardian. After the finals week on June 5th, the student support team (made up of the school psychologist, counselors and administrators) will reach out to the students and their parents/guardians who need to complete missed work over the summer in order to pass.

    Based on the needs, students will have one of the following options:

    • Participate in remote/virtual core classes Monday-Friday from July 6 - 31, with a teacher until they have completed all the missed targets required to pass.
    • Enroll into a modular on-line course in Grad Point (with a teacher available for online support) over the summer. This option will start mid to late June and run through the summer.  
    • Retake the course next school year.


    The Jumpstart to High School class is still undetermined at this time. The Jumpstart class is scheduled to run in mid-August and we would prefer to have that class in-person. There will be future communication about that when decisions are made.

Important Work Permit Information

  • “The Department has temporarily suspended the requirement that minors under the age of 16 have a work permit before beginning work. The emergency rule that authorizes this is valid through at least September 1, 2020.

     Instead of getting a permit, the minor may begin work if the employer emails information to the Department's work permit mailbox (workpermits@dwd.wisconsin.gov) including a statement that the employer has reviewed the minor's proof of age documents, a job offer from the employer including the hours and job duties of the minor, and the parents' consent for the minor to work.

     When the emergency rule expires, employers will be required to retroactively obtain work permits for minors employed during this period.”
