Moose Lake High School moves to hybrid model
The case rate in Pine County has forced school district officials to switch learning models for high school students.
Moose Lake High School students will switch to a hybrid learning model Wednesday, Sept. 30 due to rising COVID-19 rates in Pine County, said Billie Jo Steen, superintendent.
About one-fourth of the Moose Lake School District is located in Pine County, where the COVID-19 case rate per 10,000 residents reached 10.3, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.
Grades seven through 12 are required to move to hybrid learning when the 14-day case rate is between 10 and 20.
“We anticipate we will be in this model through Friday, Oct. 23, unless things change and we are required to go to a more restrictive model,” said Steen.
She added that there are no cases in the school.
