BILLINGS — After school board meetings Monday, local trustees made the decision to keep up with online learning for the remainder of the school year in Laurel, Joliet and the Billings Catholic Schools.

Laurel School Superintendent Linda Filpula said the school board concurred with her position for students to continue learning online in an email to Q2 Monday night.

Joliet Public Schools confirmed its trustees decision in a Facebook post published around 7:45 p.m.

Billings Catholic Schools also announced its decision to keep students out of the classroom, as did Huntley Project, Colstrip and Billings Christian Schools.

Those schools now join Lockwood, Huntley Project, Shepherd, and Red Lodge in completing the 2019-20 school year online.

Billings School District 2 trustees made the same decision Monday night as well.
