The Leland School District had an emergency day off Friday and will be moving to remote learning for the next week because of COVID-19 exposure, the district confirmed.
Superintendent Jodi Moore says the shut down is happening because around 20 to 25 percent of the district population has either tested positive for COVID-19 or has been quarantined because of a positive case. Moore says the district and the LaSalle County Health Department are still working on contact tracing.
Moore says students are to return to class in person on Monday, September 20. She says the decision to move to remote learning was done in coordination with the LaSalle County Health Department.
