Sturgeon Bay Schools COVID Update

In a recent letter from Sturgeon Bay School Superintendent Dan Tjernagel, he details the latest developments in Sturgeon Bay Schools. The high school administration learned late Friday afternoon of a positive COVID test result, the 2nd positive result of last week. This led to 15 additional high school students and one staff member being quarantined. It was learned that 7 of these positive cases may have occurred through a community sports team, non-school related. Sunday evening they learned of 2 more positive cases, a 5th-grader and an 8th grader, both from the same household. The entire 5th grade has now been switched to 100% virtual for the time being, this due to staffing difficulties even before the positive cases. The entire 7th grade and now 8th grade are also switched to 100% virtual as well, also due to staffing difficulties. These staffing difficulties were announced and discussed over recent months. Regular staff and substitute teacher availability have become increasingly critical components in such a strained school year. Superintendent Tjernagel anticipates another grade level moving to virtual soon for a period of time. This, too, would be from lack of available in-person staff and would likely occur even with no additional positive test results.
