A person with connections to Kennedy Elementary School in Willmar has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Willmar Schools Superintendent Jeff Holm said there will not be any change in student schedules this week.

In a letter to parents, Holm wrote that the exposure dates were Tuesday, September 8 and Wednesday, September 9, and that the district has been in communication with those who had close contact with the individual. The risk of exposure for other individuals present in the building on those dates is not greater than the risk of contracting the virus in the general community.

The District reminded families that if symptoms develop, stay home and contact your physician.
