Fosston, MN — Everyone’s favorite term has become more and more prevalent in the local news as of late and if you haven’t guessed it, it’s covid-19. The virus continues to spread throughout the United States and is now running wild through our local communities forcing school districts to re think their learning models. Some schools have closed and went to complete distance learning for the time being while others, such as the Fosston School District, continue to move forward with in person learning at the elementary and hybrid learning at the high school despite Polk County now being deemed a hot spot. School Superintendent Sue Chase explains the entire thought process of choosing not to move to distance learning.

Cases continue to rise within Polk County causing concern that the school district could be overrun with cases and as much as the district doesn’t want to move into distance learning they are still staying prepared for if and when the day comes and Superintendent Chase says parents and students should prepare too.

Chase says they are doing a good job of “keeping a lid on things” and credits the staff for doing the right things so everyone can stay healthy.
