Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary will hold an orientation for all new students on Monday, August 24. In the afternoon, all returning students will attend a special COVID orientation. That evening at 7 p.m. the opening worship service will be held. In-person attendance is limited to students and faculty only. The service will be streamed for all at https://livestream.com/wlslive.
After ending the second semester of the 2019-2020 school year in an online environment, the seminary begins the 2020-2021 school year with face-to-face instruction. Six classrooms have been set up that allow for social distancing and chapel has been moved to the auditorium. In addition, Governor Evers’ face covering order requires that students, staff, and faculty to wear face coverings whenever they are in a room or enclosed space when others are present. Everyone making use of the library will be required to wear a face covering. All students, staff members, and professors will also be required to take their temperatures and conduct a health screening each day.
“We trust the Lord and we do what we can to be safe. It’s not one or the other, but both. We know that the Lord is guiding all of this for his good purposes. The one who chose us in eternity to be his own and brought us to faith in Jesus in time will use this to bless us,” said President Earle Treptow.
