Schools wrestling with reopening

Schools in Door and Kewaunee Counties continue to weigh out their options as the academic year sits for many just over a month away. On Monday night, the Gibraltar School Board took another look at its reopening protocol and even entertained suspending the fall athletic season if the district had to resort to all-virtual learning when classes restart. Superintendents from all eight local school districts have been meeting with First District Representative Joel Kitchens in recent weeks to discuss how to balance concerns around COVID-19 and addressing the educational and emotional needs of their students. He says administrators are going to be criticized no matter which direction they go.

Luxemburg-Casco, Algoma, Kewaunee, Gibraltar, Sevastopol, Sturgeon Bay and Southern Door School Districts have all shared their plans with the community and placed an emphasis on kids returning to in-person classes at least a few days a week. The plans also give the districts the flexibility to go to all-virtual instruction if needed.
