Lake Park, MN -- The Lake Park-Audubon School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night. At the meeting, they had some preliminary discussions about the different options they may have when it comes to education during the COVID-19 pandemic this fall. Governor Walz is expected to make his decision today, but if he were to leave it up to the local districts, Lake Park-Audubon Superintendent Dr. Paula Henry hopes that they can bring all students back for at least a short time and then switch to a hybrid model.
