Inclement Weather and School Closing

St. Croix Prep is dependent upon ISD 834 (Stillwater) for bus transportation. Because of this, St. Croix Prep will close when Stillwater closes its schools. 

St. Croix Prep and Stillwater currently provide WCCO-4, KSTP-5, KARE-11 and FOX-9 with school closing information. We recommend tuning to these TV stations and their websites for school alert information.

We also post our school closing information on our website.

Fall 2020 School Opening


  • Distance Learning Model. This is how school operated from March 30 to May 31 with instruction being done while students remain at home.
  • Back to School as Normal. This would be bringing everyone back to school in full attendance.
  • A Hybrid Model. This is a model that is in between the two previously listed, where some students attend one day, others attend another, etc.

Please note:  Per MDE, given local pandemic circumstances, it is possible that schools could use all three models throughout the year.


  • The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) will make the decision during the week of July 27.
  • All MN public schools will be required to adhere to this decision.


  • Current guidance from MDE is that masks will not be required, but their usage is strongly recommended.
  • We will let families make their choice based on this recommendation.

Please note: This guidance from MDE is subject to change.
