Two Sawyer Elementary 2nd Grade Classes Now 100% Virtual

In a recent update from Sturgeon Bay School Superintendent Dan Tjernagel, he informs us that late Tuesday evening a Sawyer Elementary staff member who works in a 2nd grade classroom notified Principal Smejkal that this person had just learned of a positive test result. Their public health liaison could not be reached at that point of the evening, so in an attempt to avoid a situation with families and staff scrambling Wednesday morning Principal Smejkal, the school nurse, and Superintendent Tjernagel agreed it was best to move the most-impacted 2nd grade classroom to 100%-virtual right away, as well as another 2nd grade class that a different staff member shared time with. Families with students in the two classrooms were sent school messenger communications Tuesday evening as well as all teachers and staff. Wednesday morning, members of the nurse team, public health, and Principal Smejkal met to ensure that all necessary information was assembled so contact tracing and any appropriate next steps could occur. So in summary, at this point, all four 1st grade classrooms are 100% virtual, as previously reported, due to what was learned last week. Now, two of the four 2nd grade classrooms are 100% virtual based upon what they learned since Tuesday evening.
