Sauk Rapids-Rice Schools to Remain in Distance Learning Through Jan. 15
SAUK RAPIDS – Sauk Rapids-Rice students will not return to their school buildings until at least mid-January.
District Superintendent Brad Bergstrom Monday announced distance learning has been extended through at least Jan.15 for all students, pre-K through grade 12.
Bergstrom says extending distance learning will give district officials the ability to review updated community testing data for the two-week period following the holidays.
“The review of this information is necessary and important to help avoid future emergency learning model transitions due to COVID-19 infection and spread in our learning communities,” said Bergstrom.
If COVID-19 case rate data supports it, students will be transitioned into a less restrictive model on Jan.19.
All middle and high school activities are set to resume on Jan. 4.
