Students of the Hinckley-Finlayson High School will remain in distance learning through Friday, November 12, due to a lack of staff.
According to Superintendent Rob Prater, the closure is due to having a high percentage of staff in quarantine after being in close contact with COVID-19; however, they expect to reopen to students on Monday because many of the staff affected will be done quarantining over the weekend.
Hot lunch will be available to HFHS students. Parents are asked to call the high school office between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. to let staff know they would like lunch. It will not be delivered, but students can eat at the school during their regular lunchtimes.
All other schools within the district including Hinckley Elementary, Finlayson Elementary, Empower, Pine County Transition, and New Direction are open as usual.
