Sturgeon Bay Psychologist Dr. Dennis White says parents and children are not the only ones needing support during the current health crisis facing local school districts. Door and Kewaunee County schools are utilizing in-person and virtual learning, or a combination of both early in the academic year. Dr. White emphasizes that the entire school staff can be stressed in more ways than one.
Dr. White adds that administrators, support staff, and teachers all need our understanding and appreciation for putting themselves at risk to make sure students receive their education. He notes that at times a single positive test case can cause the quarantining of a complete shift of employees putting more pressure on other shifts.
