CHISHOLM, MN-- For the next two weeks, an entire Chisholm elementary school will be learning from home due to COVID cases spreading in the classroom.
In a letter St. Louis County health experts sent to Vaughan Steffensrud School leaders, they pointed to an "increasing" number of cases, but school leaders were not able to share exactly how many.
Starting Thursday, Sept. 16, kindergarteners through 3rd graders will be learning from home for at least 14 days.
County health leaders say Chisholm families should self-quarantine from activities and other group gatherings and watch out for symptoms.
The Chisholm School Board chairperson said masks were optional for students and staff.
No word yet if they plan to reconsider that down the road.
