Major changes at B-B-E

A massive amount of information was released by Stearns County school superintendents today.

The big thing to share is that school buildings (B-B-E and other schools in Stearns County) are now prohibiting visitors and volunteers to enter, as of this time and going forward until further notice.

More on this will be explained over the weekend.

  • UPDATE: click over to the Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper website to read a large article explaining more on this rapidly-changing situation...this was posted at 02:28 on the morning of Saturday, March 14 (short link) Please share that link as you are able to!

The Monday, March 16 school board meeting at the elementary school will not be open to the public, however - it will be live streamed as to comply with Minnesota open meeting laws. With the Governor declaring a peacetime state of emergency, the lay of the land has changed significantly.

I'll remind people again of the 20-second hand washing guideline. Please follow the rules of good hygiene. These are things we should do whether there's a virus outbreak or not.

In the coming days, I'll slowly get caught up with online coverage and then, of course, print coverage for the winter sports teams. Here's one step forward...a very brief bit of coverage of the B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team in their sub-section finals loss on Wednesday. This web article features a 12-minute long video of the last three minutes of that hotly-contested game against Nevis (short link)
