Distance Learning Plan

Distance Learning begins on Monday, March 30

We are prepared to begin our distance learning program on March 30. We know you, and your children, have been receiving communication related to the commencement of this. We want to gradually roll this out, get everyone comfortable with how this works, and we will make adjustments along the way. Any division or classroom changes will be communicated to you by the Principals or teachers.

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.
