Student drop-off changes
As of this past week, there has been a change in drop-off locations over at Sevastopol School. Hoping to improve safety, the buses now drop off students on the north side of the building, toward the elementary gym.
Parents and grandparents who are driving their children to school should use the front entrance, which is available from 7:30 to 8:05 a.m. Commuters, please remember that the speed limit in Institute is 15 mph when the lights are flashing and children are present.
Wanted: Cheese factory photos
The Sevastopol Historical Society is seeking old photographs of Sevastopol cheese factories. In the early 1900s, Door County had 38 cheese factories and five creameries. The Sevastopol area was a rich farming community, with the dairy industry being one of the best in the County.
Please search your albums for any pictures of the old cheese factories from our area. Call Don Rudolph at (920) 743-5358 if you have photos or questions.
Now that the election season is over, the state elections board will send out postcards to those registered voters who have not voted in the past four years. The notice will indicate a status of "active - suspended." If you receive one of these postcards and want to continue your registration status, simply respond by May 15. If you have any hesitation or concern, just call your local clerk; in Sevastopol that would be the town office at (920) 746-1230.
