Minnesota school officials face decisions amid latest wave of COVID-19 cases

As many districts are forced into remote learning, some experts are still saying in-person learning is possible.  It’s a similar situation for students at two Robbinsdale schools this week. “The question is, can you still have school in the middle of a surge? And the answer is, you can,” Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, said. “Because if people are vaccinated, teachers should all be vaccinated and boosted. If people wear high-quality masks, even without those other upgrades which I would like to see, it still is safe for kids and teachers to be back in school.”

District and school buildings are closed to the public, and all after-school activities are canceled for the day. Minneapolis school officials say they made the decision because of the extreme wind chill Monday and a lack of bus drivers with the number of COVID-19 cases reported over the weekend. 

Fridley school officials also made the decision to move to remote learning starting Monday because COVID-19 cases are impacting its ability to staff classrooms and buses. Several districts made the call over the weekend to move classes back online, including Minneapolis Public Schools and Fridley Public Schools. 

As of now, Minneapolis students will be back in the classroom Tuesday. In Minnesota, schools are making decisions on the individual level based on what they’re seeing in their schools.
