Sheboygan schools report 30 active cases of COVID-19 among students and staff

SHEBOYGAN — As of Thursday afternoon, the Sheboygan Area School District reported 30 active COVID-19 cases among students and staff.

On Wednesday, an online dashboard was launched to track active cases as well as a historical summary of COVID-19 cases within the Sheboygan Area School District. “We are monitoring and updating two data points daily: student absences and a COVID-19 dashboard showing positive staff and student cases at each building,” said Superintendent Seth Harvatine in a letter to families. “Both of these resources will be updated by 12 noon each school day with information from the previous school day.”

On Thursday, the school district reported 26 active cases among students and four cases among staff. Sheboygan North High School has the most cases with five followed by Wilson Elementary School with three. An active case indicates that an individual has been tested and received a report verifying an acute infection of the virus that causes COVID-19. Active cases are removed as people are released from isolation according to the district.

Masks are recommended but optional for all students and staff in the Sheboygan Area School District. However, masks are required for riders on all school buses and Shoreline Metro buses.
