As different as this next school year will be, I am making a commitment to you that we will do absolutely everything within our power to ensure all our students have the quality education they need and deserve–whether they are learning in-person or online, whether they are preschoolers or seniors, whether they are receiving special education services or ELL services. Our mission is that every child learns, grows and excels. I am as dedicated to that mission as ever.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters.

COVID-19 Updates

As you may have heard in Governor Walz’s announcement this week, he is loosening restrictions related to COVID-19 effective Memorial Day weekend. While this is good news, we want to remind you that the pandemic is not over and case rates continue to be high in Hennepin County. Please continue to follow best practices like regularly washing your hands, staying home when you are sick, etc. Here is additional guidance from the State of Minnesota.

We are excited to share with you the plans for the expanded hybrid programs at the secondary level. Hybrid learning students in grades 6-12 will be able to attend in person four days per week. Distance learning is still an option for all students.

We would like to share with you the plan to expand our in-person program for elementary students. Starting on Wednesday, March 17, all elementary students who have been on a waitlist for hybrid/in-person learning will be able to attend school five days per week.
