The Mineral Point School District in Iowa County announced Monday it would be closing for at least two weeks and switching to online learning.
The move by the Mineral Point School Board Monday night followed a recommendation from the Iowa County Health Department.
School will be closed Tuesday for a preparation day, and digital learning will start Wednesday, the district said in a Facebook post.
Regular season games for volleyball, cross country and boys soccer will also be suspended, but postseason games will be allowed, the district said. Football is also suspended for two weeks.
The earliest the district plans to return to a hybrid of in-person and digital learning will be Oct. 27, the district said.
