Seniors deal with loss of school year

The last day of school usually comes with a dose of excitement, but not necessarily for high school seniors in Door and Kewaunee counties. Schools have been restricted to remote learning since March 18th and their buildings will likely remain closed for the duration of the academic year. That means no prom or traditional high school graduations for the area’s seniors, many of which that have gone to the same building for classes since they were in kindergarten. Gibraltar student Brandon Stillman was planning on playing baseball this spring before the school board closed their buildings for the year last week and the WIAA officially axed the spring sports season on Tuesday. Before he starts this fall as a sports business major at Arizona State, he wished he would have known when his time at Gibraltar was going to end before it did.

Stillman has still been able to connect with friends while away from school and looks forward to coming back to the building as a proud alum. Even though the doors are closed school districts across the state are still required to offer remote learning opportunities through the end of their scheduled year for their students.
