Fall 2020 School Opening

Options

  • 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.

Decision

  • 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.

Masks

  • 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.
