Classrooms were dark and hallways sat  silent at Hillsboro Elementary School Monday as state-mandated school closures stretched into their second week due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Gov. Burgum announced March 19 that schools should continue educating students using alternative delivery methods and have a detailed learning plan submitted to the state for its review by today (Friday).

Parents lined up outside the Hillsboro Events Center on Monday morning to pick up packets and get instructions for tutoring their kids at home during the closure.

Vicki Buchholz snagged materials for her sons in eighth, sixth and second grades.

Buchholz, who works as a nurse in Fargo, said her boys have kept tabs on the spread of COVID-19 by watching Burgum’s daily press conferences.

“They have a good idea of what’s going on, although the younger one maybe doesn’t understand why he can’t play with his friends as much,” she said.
