As long as Door County’s COVID-19 activity level stays high, students at Gibraltar Area Schools will stay home. Superintendent Tina Van Meer sent the letter out to parents detailing the threshold plan adopted by the Gibraltar School Board Monday night. Every COVID-19 activity level has a corresponding amount of access students and staff are allowed at their buildings. Currently, Door County’s activity level is high, which means the district’s buildings would be closed for in-person instruction if school started this week. The activity level has to drop by August 19th in order for the district’s buildings to open for in-person instruction in time for the start of classes on September 8th. Parents uncomfortable with sending their kids to school could still choose virtual learning opportunities. Van Meer and Gibraltar Secondary School Principal Gereon Methner could not be reached for this story.
