            Increasing COVID-19 infections have moved the Morris Area School District to adopt their Hybrid model for classes.

            Supt. Troy Ferguson sent a letter to the school community on Monday stating they will use the Hybrid model for the high school starting today. Under the High School Hybrid Model, grades 7-12 will be on an A-B schedule. Students in the “A” group will attend in person Tuesday and Wednesday this week and students in the “B” group will attend Thursday and Friday this week. Families of high school students will be receiving follow-up communications from the MAHS with more specifics on the A-B schedule moving forward.

            The District’s Incident Response Team meets weekly on Wednesday and will continue to monitor the situation.

            Meanwhile, yesterday another five cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Stevens County by the Minnesota Health Department. Horizon Public Health reports there are 24 active cases on isolation.
