On Tuesday, December 22, ISD 318 Superintendent Matt Grose delivered an early holiday gift to parents. Kids would be returning to buildings on January 11. “Our goal has always been to have as many students return to our buildings as was safely possible. The announcement from Governor Walz last week has helped us to lay the ground work to implement a less restrictive learning model,” said Superintendent Grose.
Cases in the county and among our staff have begun to decrease which means elementary students will return from the distance reset on Monday, December 14. At Grand Rapids and Cohasset Elementaries, K-2 learners will be in-person every day and grades 3 through 5 will be in the hybrid model. At Bigfork School, grades K through 6 will be in person every day starting. Middle and high school students will continue in distance learning through the rest of December.
