Though we have not had an outbreak of cases in our school buildings, we have seen an increase in staff and students impacted by quarantine recommendations due to exposures that most frequently occurred outside of school. The goal of this temporary learning model shift is to return to our current hybrid schedule on November 30th. This goal may need to be adjusted based on the status of COVID-19 in our schools and community at the end of the month.
During the next two weeks, grab-n-go breakfast & lunch will be available for any student who needs them 11am-12:30pm at the main gym doors at the middle/high school (door 23 – this is an adjustment from our current grab-n-go. Parents/guardians may request grab-n-go meals for their students by emailing or calling our Nutrition Services Director, Brittany Zuhlsdorf at firstname.lastname@example.org or 218-894-5400 x3164.
Middle/High School activities will remain in-person as scheduled during the next two weeks, as we have not had any COVID-19 spread within our activity groups at this time. We will continue to closely monitor these groups and make adjustments as necessary.
To all our families, we ask that you take this two weeks to minimize your exposure to COVID-19 so we can meet our goals for returning to school. Please follow the MN Department of Health’s recommendations of physical distancing, wearing a face covering and washing your hands frequently. The efforts of our families and communities are essential to our return to on-site learning.
Thank you for your flexibility as we continue to adapt to this unprecedented year in education.
