Minneapolis Public Schools Superintendent Ed Graff said the district has no plans to move all schools into distance learning.

Minneapolis school leaders say they intend to keep students in classrooms as the rapidly spreading omicron variant of COVID-19 means more teacher absences and student quarantines.

Superintendent Ed Graff said in a letter to parents on Sunday that the district has no plans to move all schools into distance learning, although individual schools may temporarily switch to remote learning if needed.

"We've moved from fatigue to exhaustion," Graff said during a news conference on Monday. As of Monday morning, 285 teachers were absent due to illness or travel delays, he said. "Obviously that puts pressure on the district and our system."
