SASD 2020-21 Calendar Changes & Reminders

October 2, 2020

Dear Sheboygan Area School District families,

As we look forward into our school year, we want to share several calendar updates as well as a few reminders and resources.

Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences
November face-to-face parent-teacher conferences will not be held given our current COVID-19 limitations. Instead, we have made the following adjustments to our school schedule for Friday, November 13, 2020:

  • Elementary Schools - Classroom teachers will be reaching out to parents to schedule conferences by telephone or videoconferencing.
  • Middle and High Schools - There will be no formal scheduling of parent/teacher conferences in Fall. Due to the disproportionality of cohort “A” and “B” days, a day of school on Friday, November 13 (in lieu of conferences) allows for an additional cohort “B” in-person day. Teachers will be reaching out to parents of students who are receiving a “D” or “F” to discuss student progress and learning.

2-Hour Early Release Days now No School Days
The following days were scheduled as virtual days under the Hybrid model plan. However, given our ability to meet instructional minute requirements, there will be No School on:

  • Wednesday, November 25
  • Wednesday, December 23
  • Friday, March 26
  • Wednesday, June 9

The last day of school will now be Tuesday, June 8 (full day).

You can find the 2020-2021 School Year calendar on our district website at

End of First Quarter
We will be asking families of our online students if they plan to remain in the virtual setting or return to the classroom the week of October 12. This gives us time to adjust our classrooms and rosters to ensure we are following all recommended mitigation strategies.

Masks in Schools
Governor Evers has extended the state-wide order requiring face coverings until November 21. Regardless of a statewide order, all students and staff within the Sheboygan Area School District will be required to wear a mask or face covering as outlined and approved in our Fall Reopening Plan - Hybrid Model. Accommodations will be made for students when physical, medical, or developmental needs exist.

Technology Support

  • Video Tutorials - Our Instructional Technology team has created a variety of short videos explaining many of the programs students are using. Visit the parent resource site here.
  • Internet Access - Charter Communications relaunched its 60-day free internet offer to connect new households with students and educators on Sept. 21. For information on the new offer, click here or call Charter at 1-844-310-1198 for more information.

We will continue to communicate with families regarding health, safety, and any changes to school learning models. Please ensure your contact information - including an email address - is up to date with your school office. You can also customize your communication preferences, including adding a phone number for text messages, in the Skylert tab in Skyward Family Access. Click here for directions.

I encourage you to visit our Sheboygan Area School District website, our School Nurse Resources page, and the Sheboygan County Public Health School Resources for Parents page for the most up-to-date information.

Thank you,

Seth A. Harvatine
