Pillager High School and Middle School To Convert To Hybrid Learning Model
By: Ben Aberg firstname.lastname@example.org (10/13/20)
Pillager, MN — Pillager Public Shcools Superintendent Michael Malmberg sent a letter Monday to families informing them of changes coming for Pillager Middle and High School students. The school started in complete in-person learning; Superintendent Malmberg discussed how COVID-19 cases have started to affect students.
County Health case numbers have helped determine the change that is being made October 20th.
Cass County has seen 71 new cases in the last two weeks, while Morrison has seen 170 and Crow Wing has seen almost 200 cases in the same time.
Grades up through 4th grade, though, are remaining as they have been; Superintendent Malmberg discussed the approach on wanting to keep students in-person as much as possible.
Students will be able to pick up pre-packed breakfasts and lunches for distance learning days.
We’ll continue to chat in coming weeks with Superintendent Malmberg, as the school district looks to keep the amount of change in the near future minimal.
The switch for 5th through 12th grade to hybrid learning will have no additional effect to extracirrucular activities.
Full interview below. We will chat with Pillager Schools Superintendent Mike Malmberg following next Monday’s school board meeting.
