Climax-Shelly & Fisher Schools Switch to Distance Learning Over the Weekend
By Mark Askelson email@example.com (11/2/20)
Climax, MN — Both the Climax-Shelly and Fisher School District made announcements over the weekend that their students would immediately begin Distance Learning for the next two weeks. Climax-Shelly made the announcement on Friday afternoon while Fisher followed suit on Sunday. Climax-Shelly Superintendent Michael Underwood says it got to the point where there were too many cases of close contacts and the district needed a reset.
The Climax-Shelly Elementary is continuing with in-person learning during this time and hopes to return their high school to their A/B hybrid learning model on November 16th. All Fisher students are impacted by the switch to distance learning, but they also plan on returning to full, in-person learning on November 16th.
Superintendent Underwood anticipates with the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Polk and surrounding counties, people are likely to start seeing more of these two-week resets in other schools in the future.
