SCHOOL CHOICE DISCUSSION


For any and all information related to this topic and discussion, please CLICK HERE.


SCHOOL CLOSING INFORMATION

Star of Bethlehem will always follow the New Berlin School District with school cancellations due to weather or bussing issues, late starts, or early dismissals. If New Berlin closes, so does Star. We may still, however, post Star of Bethlehem’s status on TV (WISN12 and TMJ4) and online at WISN.com and tmj4.com. We will also use this communication tool for after school activity cancellations. If there is early dismissal, we will follow the directions provided on the school registration form and either send your child home on the bus or keep your child in Extended Care until he or she can be picked up. If you do not remember which you stated, please call the office at 262-786-2901.
