    As a district, PSD will do what we can to provide education-based extra curricular opportunities for our students.  During this unprecedented time it is important to utilize all resources available to mitigate risk and ensure the safest possible environment for participation. Although the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletics Association (WIAA) is the primary organization providing leadership and guidance for Wisconsin high school athletics, guidance from other pertinent sources will be included.  We will continue to monitor guidelines from the WIAA, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), the Waukesha County DHS Guidance, and the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) to help Pewaukee School District develop procedures that best fit our population and resources.  We recognize the mental health benefits that extra curriculars provide, therefore, we will do our best to provide extra curricular activities for our students.

    It is important to note that things are going to be different this year.  Any changes that are made are not changes for the long term.  They are changes for this season.  Hopefully, things will be back to normal next year.  Our goal is to provide an experience for kids.  It’s not necessarily to win a state championship or conference championship, as those opportunities might not be available for us.  It’s to provide an experience for kids this year.  In doing so, our metric for success needs to change.  It will be a success if we are able to mitigate spread and risk which allows us to provide an opportunity for our kids to play, practice and compete.  This aligns with our school district’s and Waukesha County’s motto of Staying Safe to Stay Open.
