The stadium is the home of the Milwaukee Milkmen, an independent professional baseball team; it is located about 20 minutes south of WLHS. Two large, free surface parking lots
are available near the stadium entrance; they hold more than 1,000 vehicles and have handicapped-accessible spaces.

We recognize that some individuals in attendance prefer to wear a mask and certainly respect that choice.
The graduates will be given a “WLHS Class of 2021” mask for the ceremony.
