WINDOM — Due to increased illnesses among students and staff, Windom Public Schools Superintendent Wayne Wormstadt announced a 10-day classroom break for students, with the district transitioning to e-learning.

There will be no class on Friday or Monday (previously a staff development day), with Jan. 18-20 as distance learning days for students in Pre-K through Grade 12. Jan. 21 is a teacher work day to mark the end of the semester, and students will not be in class (also previously scheduled).

In a note to parents, Wormstadt said the district has encountered cases of COVID-19, influenza, RSV and other illnesses, with 10% to 15% of staff out sick this week.

With the shift to e-learning, the district will not provide daycare or Adventure Club, although evening activities will continue as scheduled. Students who are sick should not attend.
