Bagley, MN — The Bagley School District is calling for a two-week reset in the Elementary as over 100 students and staff have been quarantined and coronavirus cases are climbing just over a month into the school year. The Bagley School Board called an Emergency meeting on Monday, where they approved a 14 day period of distance learning for the Elementary. Bagley Superintendent Erich Heise says they ultimately were running out of options and that’s what led to the board decision on Monday night.

The leaning model for the High School, which is already in distance learning, will remain the same, according to Superintendent Heise.

Despite all the students being in distance learning modes, it will not have an impact on extracurricular activities. Heise says unless the state mandates the distance learning, they can continue with their sports and other activities.

The distance learning period for the elementary will begin at the start of the MEA break. Bagley elementary students are expected to return to the classroom on October 29th.
