The weekend will start a little earlier for Sturgeon Bay School District students. Beginning on November 6th, the district’s schools will have an early release on Fridays throughout the rest of the school year. The plan allows teachers to meet with students one-on-one either virtually or in person, talk with parents, set up assessments, and upload materials to its remote learning platform for the upcoming week. Superintendent Dan Tjernagel is appreciative of the flexibility being shown by parents, employers, students, and staff as they work through the school year.
Outside of an eight-day stretch in September where several grades had to be quarantined due to COVID-19 issues, Tjernagel is happy that the numbers have allowed them to keep most of the students in the classroom learning. Sturgeon Bay School District updates the COVID-19 dashboard on their website on Wednesdays.
