COVID cases rise in Watford schools
By Neal A. Shipman
As the number of positive COVID cases remains at record highs in McKenzie County, Steven Holen, McKenzie County Public School District No. 1 superintendent, is also seeing an increase in the number of students and staff that are testing positive.
And he has a strong message to parents who are sending sick children to school.
“We appreciate the families who are respecting the quarantines and keeping their sick children at home,” states Holen. “That is the best way we can keep our schools open.”
