WHITEFISH — The Whitefish School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved action to continue remote learning for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

Under the approved action, class will remain online until the final day of school June 11.

The board also unanimously passed a declaration of unforeseen emergency through June 30, based on Covid-19 risks.

The emergency declaration allows the school district to continue to receive state funding, including transportation funding.
