The Minocqua J1 School District is the latest school to temporarily switch to remote learning.

In a letter to families of students, the district said the decision was made because of the increase in COVID-19 cases, related close contacts, and a shortage of available substitute teachers. The district doesn’t have enough the capacity to safely or effectively provide in-person instruction.

The district will move to remote learning start Thursday, October 22. The goal is to resume in-person classes on November 2.

Crescent Elementary School, the School District of Crandon, and other districts in the region have had to make similar decisions lately due to the surge of COVID-19 cases in the Northwoods.
