Windom board extends distance learning through Christmas break

The Windom Area School Board approved a plan calling for the district to implement a distance learning model for grades PreK-12 that will run through the Christmas holiday break.

Supt. Wayne Wormstadt stated that the number of COVID-19 cases in the county has grown exponentially. In total, the school district has had 395 students and 80 staff members out of school from either positive tests, COVID symptoms or contact tracing to close contacts of positive cases.

The district moved to distance learning for all students last week, after initially moving the high school, then grades 6-12.

Wormstadt said the recommendation allows for two incubation cycles to pass. However, he stressed that if numbers in the community don't show improvement, the district could potentially see distance learning continue well into January.

The board approved the distance learning plan and approved scheduling special meetings on Dec. 21 and Jan. 4 to assess the situation within the school.
