Safe Schools Plan Update: The current Safe Learning Plan of all grades being In-Person was fully implemented on February 16, 2021, and will remain in effect until all COVID-19 restrictions required for Minnesota Public Schools officially expire on or before June 30, 2021.
The 2021-2022 School Year will be fully In-Person without the option of Distance Learning unless mandated by the State of Minnesota at a later date (as of this update on 6-7-2021, that is not the case).
Public Input on Safe Learning Plan: The public may provide input to help us improve our plan and procedures relating to response to COVID-19. We will review our plans periodically. We realize that although the COVID-19 pandemic is greatly improving, the situation is fluid and ever evolving, and if circumstances change, we may also need to adjust.
If you have any questions or input, you may provide this input via email prior to June 21, 2021, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
