MN Governor Walz and the MN Dept. of Ed. take a localized, data-driven approach to the 2020-21 school year to help students learn safely.

COVID-19 Information Center

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our district is currently planning for three educational models for the 2020-21 school year. The models outlined by the Minnesota Department of Education are as follows:

  • In-person learning for all students
  • Hybrid learning with strict social distancing and capacity limits
  • Distance learning

Governor Walz issued guidance on safely reopening schools on July 30, 2020. At this time, based on our district’s current infection rate data, it is likely our 6th-12th grade students will be starting hybrid learning and our K-5 elementary students will begin either daily in-person or hybrid learning. The Governor’s plan prioritizes keeping younger children in the classroom, understanding that transmission is less likely for younger children and that in-person learning is particularly critical at their developmental stage. A final decision will be made on August 17 based on the two-week infection rate data and in consultation with the Minnesota Department of Health.

Please refer to the Return to School Guide for Parents for specific information regarding our health and safety protocols, academic learning models and technology support. This is a fluid document that will be updated on a regular basis.
