Bagley Superintendent Erich Heiss reported Clearwater County’s COVID-19 case rate is in the 90s, and public health officials there recommended distance learning for 14 days.
The Bagley School Board, according to a notice, took no action during a meeting Monday night but will discuss the recommendation this Friday.
Heiss wrote that “while masks and vaccinations are not required in Bagley Public Schools, national, state, and local health officials highly recommend that everyone in schools wear masks to reduce the spread of COVID and that all eligible people get vaccinated.”
Since the school year started, 30 Bagley students and seven employees have had a positive COVID test.
Heiss said that a large challenge is finding substitutes to cover staff quarantine times.
