Kewaunee school district going virtual, Sevastopol masks up

The Kewaunee School District will be switching to virtual schooling for three days starting tomorrow and is hoping to return to face to face on Tuesday of next week. Monday was already a scheduled workday for staff.


Superintendent Scott Fritz says the district has seen an uptick in all illnesses, not just COVID-19. He added that the district has had five positions vacant the last two days because of the increased number of illnesses and the small substitute teacher pool. 


The school will use this time away to perform a deep cleaning and sanitization of the school buildings and facilities.


Kewaunee is not the only district trying to weather the recent surge of COVID-19 cases. Sevastopol announced this week that masks will be mandatory for all students beginning on Thursday. According to the district's dashboard on its website, there are 12 active cases of COVID-19 in the school among students and staff.
