Washington DC

June 2nd-5th, 2020

Every June, the 8th grade class at SCPA Middle School is able to take a trip to Washington, D.C. Our next trip will take place from June 2nd through June 5th (Tuesday-Friday).

Sites Visited

On the trip, students and faculty are able to visit many monuments, memorials, and museums that celebrate our nation’s history and diversity. Sites include:

  • White House
  • National Cathedral
  • Holocaust Museum
  • African American History Museum
  • Supreme Court
  • National Air & Space Museum
The trip utilizes wonderful and knowledgable tour guides, is transported from site-to-site either by charter bus or by walking, and stays at a hotel close to the city.

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.
