SHEBOYGAN — The Sheboygan Area School District has approved a plan for the fall and it involves a face mask requirement and online learning for some students.

According to the Sheboygan Press, the plan is essentially four plans within one, each plan differing based on age. However, all ages will experience some in-person schooling.

Masks will be required for all ages. However, parents will have the option to choose entirely virtual learning if they so choose.

For 4K students, they will attend school two days a week with limited class sizes.

Elementary school students will be in class, in-person, five days a week. However, the chosen model limits class sizes and utilizes all spaces in the school like the gym and cafeteria. Additionally, the school day will be shortened by one hour.

The middle school students will be split in half with each group attending school in-person two days a week. When students aren't learning in-person, they will be doing virtual learning.

Finally, highs schoolers will be assigned either a Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday in-person schedule. Similar to the middle schoolers, when the students aren't learning in-person, they will be doing their classes online.

The Sheboygan Press said the district will open windows when possible, limit traffic in hallways, and take additional precautions to ensure the health and safety of their students.
