Despicable. And then the Superintendent hides. What a complete abandonment of public duty to the kids.

The Mequon-Thiensville School District planned to bring kids back to class but decided Monday night to start school virtually.

Many parents said they were blindsided, but in a letter to parents Tuesday afternoon, the superintendent said the risk for COVID-19 spread is just too high to bring kids back in a few weeks.


WISN 12 News tried to ask the superintendent about the decision.

A spokesperson said he wasn’t available.
