Pewaukee Schools COVID-19 Numbers


Active child cases in Pewaukee school district boundaries: 3 (no age range given.) The active child cases number comes from the Waukesha County Health Department. That’s the number that includes all children in the district.

Mike Cady, Pewaukee School District Superintendent, told Wisconsin Right Now on Sept. 11: “As of this time we have had zero positive student or staff tests for COVID 19.”

We asked Waukesha County’s Health Department to break down the active child cases by school and they wrote us this back, “Waukesha County’s COVID-19 dashboard currently provides cases of school-aged individuals and the geographic boundaries of the school district they live in. The information is provided at this level in order to preserve Protected Health Information (PHI), as regulated by HIPAA. PHI is any health information that could be used to identify an individual.”

Elizabeth Tomev, Director of Communications for the state Department of Public Instruction, told Wisconsin Right Now that DPI “does not track the number of COVID-19 positive tests among students and staff. A principal, teacher, or school nurse per state statute must report a case of a communicable disease to local public health officials.”
