The Sheboygan Falls School District is moving all high school students to an all-remote model starting on Friday.
Starrlene Grossman, Sheboygan County Division of Public Health – Health Officer and Sheboygan Falls High School principal Kevin Krutzik sent a letter to staff, students and parents and said they anticipated returning to in-person learning on Dec. 3.
“We have experienced an increase in absences due to COVID19 testing within the last five days and a large number of close contacts to the positive cases have been issued into a formal quarantine and will need to remain home. The best way for our staff and student body to stay safe is to move to an all virtual model,” the letter said.
Students will need to log on virtually on Friday. There will be no classes in-person or virtually on Thursday for any high school student as staff will be meeting and preparing for their virtual launch.
When students join class on Friday, they will follow their virtual learning schedule and utilize Canvas to access class activities and Google Meets. Students will continue to follow their same daily schedule and attendance will be taken during each class.
The letter said that the district has been working in partnership with the Sheboygan County Division of Public Health to conduct contact tracing.
All school sponsored sports or activities at the high school level will be canceled while they are in virtual school.
