KALISPELL — On Thursday Kalispell's West Valley School decided to move to a remote learning platform.

In a letter to families, Superintendent Cal Ketchum writes that based on a high COVID-19 infection rate and the need for several staff members to quarantine, remote learning begins Friday.

Online classes will continue through at least Friday, November 13th.

Approximately 13 staff members have tested positive for COVID-19 or been identified as close contacts.

There are also several quarantined substitute teachers, which has left West Valley understaffed.
