Upper School Closed -2/9, 2/10

Posted by Rebekah Peterson on Feb 8, 2017 11:33:04 AM

Due to a widespread illness at the Upper School campus we are closing the Upper School for the remainder of the week starting at noon today (Feb. 8). The school building will be closed February 9 and 10, 2017. Lower and Middle School remain in operation.

Our school nurse has been in touch with the MN Department of Health who has shared that the symptoms are indicative of the Norovirus. As a precaution from further spreading this virus, we are closing the Upper School and the building starting at noon today. We are bringing in an industrial cleaning service to thoroughly clean and sanitize our building. 

We plan to resume our regular hours for school and business on Monday morning.  If you do contract this illness, please stay home for at least 48 hours after all symptoms end. 

We will conduct Digital Learning days for Upper School students on Thursday and Friday, and are directing them to check Schoology and email the rest of the week. Activities in the evenings or weekends will be decided in the near future.
