ALBERTON — Alberton students will be transitioning to remote learning until after the holidays.

School District Principal Mica Clarkson said in a letter that remote learning will begin immediately following Thanksgiving Break and will and through December.

"The Montana Nurses Association recommends this action and in reviewing recent spikes in Mineral County it seems inevitable that the wave of positive cases could hit Alberton and impact the school family in a most negative manner,” Clarkson said in the letter.

The Mineral County Health Department reported a total of 18 active COVID-19 cases as of Thursday morning. To date, there have been a total of 32 confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 19 recoveries and one death.
