After discussion between district administration and principals, the decision was made to observe December 21st and 22nd as eLearning days.  Factors leading to this decision included difficulty in finding substitutes to cover both COVID-19 related absences and normal requests for leave on those days, as well as conflicts with some events that were scheduled prior to the two-week delay in starting school.

Superintendent Dr. Michael Thorsland said, "Our plan for eLearning days was for them to be used solely for inclement weather and that will absolutely be our plan going forward into next school year.  With that being said, having the ability to move to eLearning during this difficult year is helpful.  While not ideal, we feel this decision is the best call under our current circumstances."

Students will not come to school buildings on these days.  Assignments for both days will be available no later than 10:00 am on Monday, December 21st.  Students will have 5 days upon returning to school to turn in assignments.  If those assignments are not completed and turned in by Friday, January 8th, students will be marked absent for December 21st and 22nd.
