The latest statistics show 82 Decorah School District students in quarantine or isolation because of COVID-19, an increase from 43 such students a little over one week ago.

Decorah School Superintendent Mark Lane said, "The data above reflects what we were concerned might occur."  At a special meeting on Monday, November 23rd, the Decorah School Board voted to have virtual learning days on Monday and Tuesday of this coming week.  Says Lane, "I am grateful to our staff and board for their foresight."

In a message to parents, Lane says, "We enter winter break and then the new year excited that our country is starting to see vaccine being administered to essential health care workers and high-risk populations. Yet, we know we are not in a position to let our guard down, and we must continue to work each and every day to manage our collective and individual health and safety."
