The Dassel-Cokato School Board released a statement this morning in regard to its meeting yesterday, which ended abruptly due to a medical emergency.  The statement reads:

“The Dassel-Cokato School Board met for a special meeting tonight (Wednesday, January 12th) to take action on pending Policy 491- Vaccination, Testing and Face Covering.  Legal council joined the meeting virtually to answer questions and provide advice before voting.  During the course of the meeting, a medical emergency occurred prompting the board to recess.  A decision was made to postpone the meeting and reconvene next week due to an evolving medical situation.   The board adjourned with no action on the policy, another special meeting will occur next week, time and date to be determined.”

Approximately 75 people were present in the audience during the meeting.  Board Chair Bill Aho told the audience at the beginning of the meeting that it was not a public forum.
