Hibbing school leaders announced a two-week reset during this pandemic. Starting on Monday, all in-person classes, activities, and sports are cancelled. So is Tier 1 childcare and district provided meals. This runs through December 1st.

Teachers will begin distance learning on the 17th.

According to Superintendent Rich Aldrich, this was done at the direction of the Minnesota Department of Health.

In the letter sent to parents, he said, "A reset is intended to provide the district time to deep clean our facilities, practice mitigation, and hopefully return healthy and ready to learn. It is also encouraged that students and staff quarantine during this period, cease gatherings outside of their homes, and practice mitigation strategies that promote our safe return. Thank you for your continued support."
