Parent starts petition for requiring masks in Sturgeon Bay schools

A parent of two Sturgeon Bay students has started a petition requesting the school board to reverse their August 16 decision to not require universal masking for all students and staff.  Tracy Andropolis says the petition received nearly 200 signatures overnight and continues to garner support after she and other parents expressed concerns over sending their children to school if masks are not required.



Andropolis and other parents requested a special meeting to revisit the masking issue, but Board President Mike Stephani told them that the matter could be brought up at the next scheduled meeting on September 15.  The Sturgeon Bay School Board had voted 6-3 earlier this month to keep masks optional.  Stephani could not be reached for comment on Friday.  Gibraltar and Washington Island are currently the only two school districts in Door and Kewaunee counties that are requiring face coverings for all students and staff.  Most area schools begin classes next Wednesday, September 1.
