Administrators at Central Valley School said Monday they’re in the process of moving their entire classroom instruction online in the wake of the spreading coronavirus.

Students in grades 6-12 already had Chromebooks assigned to them previously, and school officials spent the past week issuing more tablets to kids in grades K-5.

“We’re preparing 100 percent to educate our kids through a variety of platforms virtually,” Superintendent Jeremy Brandt said Monday.

“But we’re still going to stress one-on-one interaction, whether that’s through phone, email or videochats.”

The rural Buxton school has four to five families without wireless internet at home. 

However, school officials have been working with Halstad Telephone Co. in Halstad, Minn., and Midco, a regional cable provider based in South Dakota, to deliver Wifi to those homes during the ongoing state-mandated school closure.
