2020-2021 School Year
We are following guidance from the Minnesota Department of Education and Minnesota Department of Health to provide learning for the 2020-2021 school year that responds to local COVID-19 public health conditions.
We are preparing for students in preschool through sixth grade to return to learning full-time at school beginning January 21, 2021. There will be no school for preK-6 students on January 19-20 as teachers prepare for the transition. See details in the January 7 message to families.
Students in grades 7-12 continue in Extended Flexible Learning (distance learning). The state continues to direct schools to use county-level infection rates as the foundation for decision-making for older students. Our regional support team, which includes representatives from Minnesota Department of Health and Minnesota Department of Education, has directed that Anoka County numbers must dip below the threshold of 30 cases per 10,000 residents to return grades 7-12 to school. We hope to be making a transition in February.
We continue to operate in alignment with Minnesota’s Safe Learning Plan for the 2020-21 School Year and monitor county case numbers and trends in data from Minnesota Department of Health provided weekly.
