About Distance Learning
Governor Walz announced on March 25 that we will be moving to a ‘Stay at Home” status as of Friday, March 27 at 11:59pm. This means Distance Learning will begin Monday, March 30 and will continue until at least May 4.
On Sunday, March 15, Governor Walz issued Executive Order 20-02 in response to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and announced that all Minnesota public schools will close no later than Wednesday, March 18 and remain closed through March 27.
Based on Governor Walz’s directive, no instruction will occur during this time as staff plan for the implementation of distance learning.
In the event that our schools enter into a Distance Learning platform on or after March 30, our entire school staff is committed to doing our best for every child. We will provide instruction in many ways. Much of this communication relates to our technology use. Please take a few moments to carefully review it. Critical to the success of Distance Learning is that students are ready to engage every morning. As a result, it will be important for parents to ensure that their student’s learning device is charged and ready for use at the start of each day. Thank you for your partnership in your child’s education.
The District will work with families based on information from a March 18 Skyward survey. Questions include access to a technology device, internet access, and meal transportation and delivery.
