North Star School District announced Sunday that North Star Elementary School in Gildford would be remote this week with the hope of returning to in-class learning next Monday, Jan. 18.
The school went remote Thursday after a case related to the school was confirmed to allow for contact tracing and planning for schedules this week. The district uses a four-day week and does not have class Fridays.
The release Sunday said a case related to the school was confirmed that day and the decision to hold classes remotely was made to reduce the chance of transmission and due to lack of staff.
North Star Middle School and North Star High School are not closed this week, a release from the district said.
