According to their Facebook page, 17% of the student population has been affected by absences related to first contacts or positive COVID-19 tests.

Mahnomen, MN — The Mahnomen School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night, September 13th. The school district is currently keeping a close eye on the COVID situation as more cases pop up in the student body. Mahnomen Superintendent Jeff Bisek says they haven’t enacted any mask restrictions yet, but they will act if need be.

And because of the progression of the coronavirus, this week the Mahnomen School Board denied the FFA’s request for their trip to the National Convention, according to Bisek.

Superintendent Bisek did report some good news in that enrollment appears to be up to start the year.

And JLG Architects recently completed their facility planning studies and stakeholder input sessions over this past summer. Superintendent Bisek says as they look back at the reports, they are starting to notice some trends when it comes to facility needs.

The Mahnomen School Board also approved setting their preliminary levy at the maximum amount.
