We are thrilled that a significant number of our staff will have the opportunity to get their vaccination on Friday.  As the clinic is during school hours, it puts a significant strain on our ability to provide in-person learning. As a result, Friday, February 26 will be an asynchronous learning day for ALL students, including those in the Online Learning Academy.

As many of you have likely heard, earlier today Governor Walz announced more changes to Minnesota’s Safe Learning Plan. Much of his update today focused on potential changes for our middle and high school students. You may be wondering how this will impact your students. For the moment, nothing will change.  We have been thrilled to have all our elementary students back full time as of February 1. Tomorrow, February 18, we look forward to welcoming back our “B” students at the middle and high schools back in-person in a hybrid model, with our “A” students returning on Monday, February 22.
