Recreation Department


South Milwaukee Residents 
To mitigate the spread of COVID-19 The School District of South Milwaukee will be closed effective March 14, 2020, through April 24, 2020.  This includes all schools, recreation department events, athletics/activities, the PAC and the Fitness Center.  

Dear Dance Parent/Guardian:
The South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center is closed
.  Therefore, it is with deep regret the Recreation Department will be cancelling the dance recital scheduled for Saturday, April 4, 2020. 
Please note, if you wish to donate your refund to the South Milwaukee PAC, that donation would be greatly appreciated.   Please send an email with the first and last name of the ticket purchaser to no later than 5 pm Thursday, March 26th.

If you prefer a refund, no need to do anything. We will begin processing after March 27th

If your ticket purchase was made with a credit card, purchases will be refunded to the card as long as it is within your banking institution's required time frame for the refund. If the time frame has expired, your refund will be issued as a check from the School District of South Milwaukee and mailed to the ticket purchaser's billing address.

Cash or check purchases will be issued in the form of a check and mailed to the ticket purchaser's billing address. If your billing address is not your current address, you must email the current address to

We ask for your patience since SDSM employees are working remotely and it may take longer than usual to process. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
