Elementary Moves to Distance Learning



November 9, 2020



We are evaluating our staffing situation for this week and next. We have significant staffing concerns in covering our classrooms due to expected staff absences as we follow the Minnesota Department of Health COVID-19 Decision Tree. 

We have made the difficult decision to do a two-week reset in the hopes of improving our staffing situation. This means there will be no elementary in-person instruction for two weeks from Tuesday, November 10, through Friday, November 20. With Thanksgiving break the week of November 23, the next day planned for in-person instruction is Monday, November 30.  

All students will be required to complete distance learning during this time period. We appreciate your understanding and patience toward teachers as they make necessary changes to their lesson plans to ensure this time period runs smoothly for students.

We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 county case rate and decisions made by surrounding schools. Additionally, we are meeting with our regional support team this week to consider distance learning beyond Monday, November 30. But for the time being, we are planning to do our two-week reset and resume in-person instruction on November 30. 

Please let us know if you have any questions.
