The spread of coronavirus cases in students and school employees is mostly happening off-campus, according to Manhattan-Ogden school district and K-State officials.

“I’m proud to say there have not been very many cases with spread within our facilities,” said Eric Reid, assistant superintendent at USD 383. “So hats off to all the people on the ground, my teachers, our kids, our families, they’ve been doing a phenomenal job. I don’t think anyone would have even thought at beginning of September that we would be able to maintain face-to-face as long as we had, and even getting to the point where we’re considering bringing back more.”
