Every school district is unique when it comes to its reopening plans, and Washington Island will be no different when it makes its decision. The district has made no definitive plans for reopening, but the Washington Island School Board welcomed Dr. Amy Fogarty from Door County Medical Center to give her thoughts on safely welcoming kids back to class and to answer questions from parents. Principal Michelle Kanipes says because of the size of its school, there are some extra considerations they need to make before in-person classes can resume.
Kanipes applauded her staff for the work they are putting in this week preparing for whatever plan may come up. Sevastopol, Kewaunee, and Algoma are just some of the school districts that have released preliminary reopening plans.
