Clearbrook, MN – Like many schools in the area, concerns over COVID safety, in-person teaching and canceled activities are heightened. However, Superintendent at Clearbrook-Gonvick schools Ryan Grow states that case numbers are at a low for the district. As the new superintendent for the school, Grow looks forward to completing his first year like it started, in-person. Reflecting on his own time as a student, Grow advocates for staying in-person for as long as possible. Both the teachers and students of Clearbrook-Gonvick excel when in-person instead of through the E-learning option.

The safety protocol for COVID cases that Clearbrook-Gonvick schools follow is to let families know of a positive case in a grade level. Parents are then highly encouraged to monitor their child for any signs or symptoms of COVID. Some symptoms include high fever or chills, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or persistent pain or pressure in the chest. People with positive tests will have to isolate for 10 days. With this constant communication and information from the COVID Safety Committee, the reported cases have been kept at a low. Due to the low numbers, participation numbers in activities and events have been relatively high.

Upcoming events include the high school winter formal, elementary basketball Snowflake League and playoffs. Grow credits this successful start to the school year to the staff at Clearbrook-Gonvick schools.
