Catholic Memorial High School’s (CMH) campus is closed in response to the COVID-19 outbreak in Wisconsin, but students continue to thrive in a virtual learning environment! Our business operations are also open! Staff members are available to assist you from remote locations. (Please refer to our Faculty and Staff listing
for contact information.) Our top priority remains the health and safety of our CMH community. We are continuing to follow the guidelines and recommendations of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and State and Federal governments. We look forward to returning to our building as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.
Our students continue to rise during these unprecedented times! School is in session and learning continues
through a number of online platforms and other resources. Our extraordinary faculty adapted quickly to a virtual instruction environment, developing creative remote learning options to ensure the continued academic success of every student. They are utilizing a number of online platforms that allow for class instruction as well as efficient teacher-student communication.
During this period of remote learning, we continue to expect a high standard of conduct from our students and staff, and adherence to our eight core values known as the Memorial Way: Memorial, Faith, Trust, Respect, Inclusiveness, Professionalism, Excellence and Caritas in Omnibus
To ensure continuity of learning during this unprecedented time, we have adjusted our calendar in regard to Spring Break and Easter Observation. Spring Break has been moved to March 30-April 4
. In observation of Holy Week and Easter Sunday
, the students will have a four-day Easter break from April 10 (Good Friday) through Monday, April 13 (Holy Monday.) This adjustment will provide for more continuous learning for our students as they prepare for end of year assessments.
All CMH Administrative Offices are closed but school staff are working remotely to ensure the best possible service to our families and prospective families.

Consistent with Governor Evers' Executive Order and the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) guidelines, all athletics have been suspended. This includes, but is not limited to training, practices, scrimmages, and contests on or off campus. We will resume athletic activities as soon as we are advised it is safe to do so by the CDC, State and Federal authorities and the WIAA.
All school sponsored events and trips on or off campus have been postponed. It is our goal to reschedule as many of these as possible once it is safe to do so.
At times like these, more than ever, it is important that we all lean on our faith, steadfast in our belief that our Lord has us in the palm of his hand. We bring faith into our virtual school every day. We start with morning prayer and Fr. John Gibson continues his video series (posted to the CMH Facebook page
). Both he and our Campus Minister, Claire Hoffmeyer, provide various resources to families which are shared in communications with families throughout the week. We have provided a list of service opportunities that can be done remotely. Many of our favorite liturgical events have been postponed but planning continues, and we look forward to celebrating together soon.
