Fremont School District 79 will switch to remote learning beginning Monday, Feb. 14, after planned protests and demonstrations prompted the decision.

In a letter to parents, students and staff, district officials announced an adaptive pause would remain in effect until further notice in anticipation of protests that would “confront and/or interact directly with students.”
