Waukesha County Area School Closings

Waukesha County Area School Closings

We generally use post to keep our families up to date on snow and other weather-related closings, but the coronavirus and COVID-19 has caused the closure of some schools in our area. Please take note below which schools in Waukesha County have closed. 


Does your child have school today? We asked on Lake Country Family Fun’s Facebook page for readers to check out the snow day calculator and see what the percentage was if their school (zip code) would close and call a snow day. We loved the responses! It seemed like a snow day would in fact happen! Did your school agree? Find out below through our handy links in our Waukesha County Area School Closings Guide!
