School year begins with a return to normal

The sight of school buses on your commute will start this week as classes begin over the next week in Door and Kewaunee counties. Algoma School District and St. Paul’s Lutheran School started their first day of classes on Monday. Pastor John Moll says they saw a small increase in their enrollment numbers over last year. As kids were dropped off at school for their first day of class, he was happy that the conversations were more typical of years past and not necessarily centered around COVID-19 like last year.

Southern Door, Kewaunee, Washington Island, Luxemburg-Casco, and Sturgeon Bay school districts are among the schools starting their classes on Wednesday. Kewaunee Principal Michael Bennett says there have been no changes to their policies since their school board met earlier this summer and will keep some pandemic-related features like streaming of live events in place. He says just as it has been since the pandemic started, they will be ready if they do have to change.

Gibraltar and Sevastopol will wait until after Labor Day to start their school years.
