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.
Students in grades 7-12 are learning in a Modified Campus (hybrid) model. Students in grades preK-6 are learning full-time at school. Students who have chosen it are continuing in Extended Flexible Learning (distance). On February 17, the state's safe learning plan was updated to provide direction for planning toward a transition to full-time learning at school for grades 7-12. A transition for Spring Lake Park Schools students would happen no earlier than the beginning of the third trimester - following spring break. An update on transitions will be provided no later than March 3. See the latest message to families sent February 17, 2021.
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.
