(Hill City, MN) --- The Hill City School Board continued to review their plans for the 2020-21 school year at their regular meeting Monday night.

In our latest conversation with Hill City Schools Superintendent Pat Rendle, he discussed with us the District’s plans that involved more emphasis around the hybrid model of in-school and distance learning.

Even as Governor Tim Walz laid out his decision to go with a district-by-district basis for the start of the year, many factors still remain for Hill City and Northland Schools.
