First Sevastopol School COVID-19 case reported

Sevastopol School District officials learned over the weekend that one of its primary school students tested positive for COVID-19. Parents received notification of the result on Sunday as the district worked with the Door County Public Health Department with contact tracing. In-person classes will remain in session for all students except for those who opted for remote learning and the one section of first grade affected by the positive test. Superintendent Kyle Luedtke says those students will be quarantined and learning remotely until at least September 24th.

In the letter sent to parents, Luedtke stated if you did not receive a call from the  Door County Public Health Department that you were not within close proximity of the student and do not need to quarantine. The school district performed additional cleanings of the specific areas used by students in the affected class as an extra precaution. Sturgeon Bay and Luxemburg-Casco School Districts each had their opening weeks altered due to positive tests on their respective staffs while Gibraltar Area Schools will remain in virtual learning through at least Wednesday due to Door County’s COVID-19 activity level being considered “high.”
