DULUTH, MN. (KBJR) - A Duluth elementary school is shifting to remote learning for a week due to staffing issues.

According to the release, 25-35% of the staff at Laura MacArthur Elementary has been out due to illness or COVID-19 protocols.

From Jan. 25-31, students grades 3-5 will be remote learning.

“We understand the significant impact remote learning will have on district families,” Superintendent John Magas said. “We want our students to learn in our buildings and continue to do everything possible to do so safely, but this pause will allow our staff time to get healthy.”

In-person learning stays the same for PreK-2 students.

After school Keyzone, Northwoods mental health support, and Valley Youth Center will continue to run as normal.
