An area school district was able to maintain in-person learning for the entire first semester.
Mt. Pulaski Superintendent Fred Lamkey says while other school districts have had to go remote for a couple of days or a week at a time, Mt. Pulaski schools have defied the odds and stayed in person.
Mr. Lamkey notes while they had positive cases in both staff and students, the mitigation efforts the district put in place have prevented mass quarantining.
Mr. Lamkey indicates the idea of switching to all remote learning, even temporarily, was never discussed.
