    • Mukwonago School District: Dousman Trasnport at 262-363-7176 
    • Muskego School District: Dairyland Bus Co. at 262-203-9938

Inclement Weather

If Mukwonago Public Schools close due to inclement weather, St. Joseph School will also be closed, regardless if our school name is listed on local tv/radio stations.  St. Joseph School may also choose to close independent of the public schools.  In that case, St. Joseph School-Big Bend would be listed individually on tv/radio stations.  If school closes once the day has started, parents will be notified personally by phone informing them of the closing.

Closings will also be announced on television on channels 4, 6, and 12.  If the closure occurs before school begins, the announcements can be heard after 6:00AM.  If we start school with a two-hour delay, the staff will report to school between 9:30AM-9:45AM.  Please do not drop your child off before 9:30AM, as there may not be adult supervision available.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are many diverse ways for family and friends to be involved with St. Joseph School.  We are always welcoming new faces and ideas!  Here is a brief overview:
