Friday afternoon, the Peninsula Preschool posted on Facebook that there would be a delay to the school year. A new start date has not been set, although Director Jill Harkaway hopes it comes soon. She says that parents aren’t comfortable with sending children to school yet.
The class size was already small, at just 18 students, which Harkaway suspects is related to the current health crisis. She says the primary fear is that a child picks up the disease at school and brings it home to elderly relatives such as grandparents. Harkaway expressed that school will most likely be off until Door County’s COVID activity is classified as low.
