Assistant Superintendent Heidi Hahn told school board members on Monday, Oct. 12, total of 335 students have returned to school since being in quarantine, and of those kids, 27 tested positive for COVID-19. As of Friday, Oct. 9 78 students were still in quarantine, and seven of them tested positive. Those numbers are largely due to cluster of cases at Brainerd High School announced Sept. 22. The Cluster forces ninth through 12th grade students at BHS, Brainerd Learning Center and Lincoln Education Center into a two-week distance Learning period, with students returning to their hybrid schedules on Thursday, Oct. 8. Under the hybrid model, sixth through 12th grade students attend classes in person two days a week and work remotely three days a week. Administrators believe the two-week reset period, as they call it, works as plan, as the number of students in quarantine and the number of new positive cases have decreased since Sept. 24. No new high school students have tested positive since Oct. 2, Hahn say, though some staff members have. Superintendent Laine Larson said most staff members who have test positive had limit or no close contact with others in a school setting. To date, 135 staff members have had to be quarantine, and about 28 are still in quarantine. So the question of whether reset was a good idea? Datas telling us it was a very positive move to make, Hahn say. All school facilities in Brainerd district have reported positive cases except for Harrison and Riverside elementary schools, Hahn say. The Minnesota Department of Health reported nearly 200 new COVID-19 cases in Crow Wing County in the past two weeks, putting the country's 14-day per 10 000 case rate at about 29. Under the state Safe Learning Plan, school districts in counties with rates of 20-29 are recommended to have hybrid learning for all. Those with rates of 30-49 are recommended to have a hybrid model for elementary students and a distance Learning model for secondary students. By this Thursday, Hahn said Crow Wing County Health officials expect a rate of 32. 1 But if high schools reset had not happen, she say Michelle Moritz, County Public Health supervisor, estimate countys rate could have been more than 50. In recent days, several schools have announced shifts from in-person to hybrid Learning models for some students due to rising cases, including Crosby-Ironton, Little Falls, Pierz and Pillager. Brainerd will not make any changes at this time. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade in Brainerd district begin the year in a hybrid model with buildings running at 50 % capacity But kids still attend in-person classes five days a week with shortened school days. After a consultation meeting with representatives from MDH, Minnesota Department of Education, Crow Wing County Public Health and Sourcewell last Friday, Hahn said the recommendation from Brainerd is to continue operating as is. Recommendation comes partially from districts ' proven ability to respond when something like a cluster happen, Hahn say.

Distance learning

Middle and high school students will not have classes Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 3-4, to allow for distance Learning preparations. The Distance Learning School day schedule will align to hybrid Learning bell schedule for students at Brainerd High School and Forestview Middle School. Fifth graders are included in distance Learning, even though they were completely in-person before the change and not in hybrid. This decision is due to a staffing shortage and a recommendation from State officials to set the same learning model for all students in one building. Students are expected to engage in their classes by logging on each hour according to their schedule and following directions from their teacher. High school teachers will give live message at the beginning of each class period via Google Meets. If students are unable to log on or engage in class, they should notify their teacher, who may direct students to the district help desk, depending on the situation. If a student is unable to attend school due to illness or other reasons, parents or guardians should contact the Schools attendance office to provide an excuse for absence. Students who receive special education services will continue to do so as outlined in their contingency Learning Plan. Students who have been identified to continue attending school in person during the distance Learning model have been notified by their case manager. Special education evaluations will continue during distance Learning. Case managers will notify parents with specific information. Forestview student Tristan Wilson looks through paper samples while Brett Johnson, 8 grade art instructor, uses a paper cutter during class Friday, Oct. 30 at Middle School.
