Classes at area schools may be done for several weeks because of the fear of spreading the coronavirus, but that does not mean the buildings will fall silent. Teachers in some cases will still report to construct and distribute their e-learning lesson plans for the day. With no students around, Sevastopol School District Superintendent Kyle Luedtke says custodian will work during the break to disinfect every surface in the building.
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction announced on Monday that school districts will not have to make up the time lost as long as the proper paperwork is filed. The DPI is also lobbying the United States Department of Education to drop the mandated assessments that are usually taken at this time of the year.
