Pelican Elementary School is switching to virtual learning for all students for the next two weeks.
In a letter to students and their families, the district superintendent said the reason for this decision is the impact of COVID 19 on students and staff with both positive cases and in quarantine for close contacts.
It said it exceeded a critical number as established by Oneida County Health to remain in person at the school.
On top of those in quarantine or isolation it has several others in the building awaiting tests or that are ill.
It’s the second school in the School District of Rhinelander to go remote.
Crescent Elementary School also made the switch earlier this week.
