Moorhead public schools moving faster toward in-person classes
“As you know, our goal from the start has been to get our students into the classroom as much as possible while keeping students and staff safe," Superintendent Brandon Lunak said in a statement.
MOORHEAD — The Moorhead School District announced Wednesday, Dec. 30, that it's expediting the return of more students to in-person instruction after winter break.
The district previously announced that starting Jan. 5, pre-kindergarten through second-grade students will return to in-person instruction.
The district now says that additionally, grades 3-8 will transition to a hybrid learning model on Jan. 6 and to an in-person learning model on Jan. 19.
Currently, all Moorhead public school students are learning remotely.
Moorhead High School students will transition to a hybrid learning model on Jan. 25, when the second semester begins, the district said.
“We hope this news brings hope and encouragement to you as we work together to help our students thrive during a global pandemic,” Superintendent Brandon Lunak said in a statement. “As you know, our goal from the start has been to get our students into the classroom as much as possible while keeping students and staff safe.”
Regional and school COVID-19 data will be monitored closely during the transition, Lunak said.
Fargo and West Fargo school districts have had in-person instruction four days a week for elementary schools, and middle and high schools attend classes in-person part time.
Fargo Public Schools are expected to move toward in-person classes starting in the second semester.
