Email News Alerts

Students in Park Rapids have started to be sick but aren't yet displaying flu-like symptoms, according to the school nurse.

"We've had a few more students sick but not significantly more," said Marianne Gilbertson, Park Rapids Area High School nurse.


The nurses have been busy but the school hasn't reached the threshold of 5 percent of students being sick, she said. At that point, the district would need to notify the state.
