Pine City Elementary School to Transition into Hybrid Learning

Starting in the third week in October, the Pine City School District will have both elementary and high school students on a hybrid learning model.


This follows a rise in the rate of COVID-19 cases to 55.33 per 10,000 people. Even with Pine County factoring out the recent outbreak at FCI-Sandstone, the number of community cases would still sit above the Minnesota Department of Education's recommended threshold for in-person learning for elementary students.


Pine City Schools will implement a transition plan between now and Oct. 19, when they are set to switch over.


Pine City Elementary School will transition to its Hybrid Learning Plan on October 19.

  • The current week (October 5-9) continues "In-Person" learning for grades K-6.
