Pettit Ice Center

by: Mindy Binnie

Come Skate with Options Virtual Charter School! KOI Ambassadors conduct a brief safety lesson where students learn the importance of warming up, how to fall correctly, get up and stop on the ice. These skills enhance each student’s experience at the Pettit. When the KOI Instructors give the okay, you can skate on your own as a group, just like a public skating session. KOI Ambassadors stay on the ice to assist those who may need a little extra help and make sure everyone is having fun. Cost: $5.50. This fee includes ice time, skate rental, KOI Ambassador(s) and loads of fun! Lunch: Lunch is on your own. Please bring a bag lunch. COVID POLICY: As of June 1, 2021, per CDC guidance, due to the transmissible nature of the Delta variant, masks are strongly encouraged for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, in public, indoor settings. Masks are not currently mandated by the Milwaukee Health Department. We respectfully request your consideration of others at all times in your social distancing and your health decisions. If you are not feeling well or have been exposed to someone with COVID in the past 14 days, then do not come to the Pettit Center. The Center has been fortunate with the health of its staff and its users to date because all have been thoughtful and respectful of others in their activities here. We request the same going forward so that public skating can be enjoyed safely.
