Superintendent: Sioux Falls schools closed until "at least" April 14

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Sioux Falls School Superintendent Brian Maher gave an update on the school district’s response to COVID-19 on Monday.

Superintendent Maher says remote learning will begin on Tuesday and teachers will be reaching out to students soon. He also says school buses will be used to deliver lunches and school supplies to students.

Superintendent Maher says schools will be closed until at least April 14, as the school district awaits an announcement from Governor Noem which is expected Tuesday.

Superintendent Maher says he’s not worried about state assessment or testing at this time.

"We're going to work on resilience, adjusting to a new environment, how to adapt to our new reality. We're not sure how we're going to assess those areas, but coping with those things promotes growth, development," said Superintendent Maher.
