2020-2021 School Year
We are following guidance from the Minnesota Department of Education and Minnesota Department of Health to design learning for the 2020-2021 school year that responds to local COVID-19 public health conditions.
The Spring Lake Park School Board reviewed the 2020-2021 School Year Plan and approved the recommendation that we begin the 2020-2021 school year in a Modified Campus Schedule (Hybrid) model and provide full-time distance learning for those who choose it. This plan is in alignment with Minnesota’s Safe Learning Plan for the 2020-21 School Year.
Part of this plan included pushing back the first day of school to Thursday, September 10, 2020. This provided two additional days of professional learning and planning to support teachers' work with students. Days of instruction scheduled for September 8 and 9, 2020 will be replaced on December 4, 2020 and February 11, 2021.
Make sure you have internet access
We secured high levels of internet access for students in the spring. If you need internet access, reach out so we can help with a solution.

For students who will be coming to school in the hybrid model:
• Make sure you are ready to do a health self-screen for days you are coming to school.
• Pick out and practice wearing a face mask.
• We’ll provide family resources in the coming weeks to help students prepare.
