Honoring History events

Honoring History events


At the end of this school year, the Kenosha Unified School District will have six schools closing, one merging with another, and one changing locations. To honor their legacy in our community, the district will be celebrating the history of each of the buildings impacted prior to the end of the school year.


All current and past students, staff and families, as well as general community members, are invited to celebrate the history of each of these schools in various ways. Most events are open house style, allowing individuals to move freely throughout.


In early 2023, KUSD embarked on a rightsizing process in order to address its estimated $15MM budget deficit for the 2024-25 fiscal year. Among the many difficult decisions made was the choice to close EBSOLA-Creative Arts, Jefferson, McKinley, Stocker and Vernon elementary schools; close Lincoln Middle School and move Washington Middle School to the EBSOLA building; and to merge the Dimensions of Learning of Academy with the Brompton School. This led to the building celebrations below.
