Sturgeon Bay will be the latest school district to share its thoughts on masking as a part of their reopening plans for the upcoming year. Luxemburg-Casco, Sevastopol, and Kewaunee School Districts are requiring face coverings when social distancing is not possible according to their reopening plans. Southern Door is not making masks or other face coverings a requirement, but highly recommends it. Superintendent Dan Tjernagel expects the school board is conscious of what is happening in different communities not just locally, but across the state.
Tjernagel does not expect action on a potential masking requirement when the school board convenes for a special meeting on Monday at 6 p.m. They are set to approve the hiring of a new director of technology and teacher associates along with submitting an order for more personal protective equipment.
