Governor Walz issued an executive order that all public and charter schools will remain closed through May 4. That means that beginning Monday, March 30, Fridley will implement its Distance Learning initiative for students.

Fridley Public Schools teachers and staff have been hard at work finalizing plans for continuity in instruction through Distance Learning, continuation of services (including meals for students, social emotional learning and supports), support for students with special needs, and evaluating the needs of students who may not have access to technology. While modified due to social distancing, our services to Fridley students will still continue.

Information has been sent to parents on how to access distance learning and materials, school meals for their children, and any additional student support services that may be needed. Parents are urged to continue to monitor their emails for classroom and school specific news and updates.  It is important to ensure that parent email addresses are up-to-date to receive this information. You can check the email address you have on file through the Parent Portal. Click here to find a link to the Parent Portal log in page.  If you are still not receiving information, please contact your child's school.

Our district is here and committed to supporting our students and families as best as we can during these challenging times. We wish our students and families continued health and safety and look forward to welcoming them back into our school buildings.

Below, please view a video message from Superintendent Dr. Kim Hiel to Fridley families.

While Fridley is on spring break, several of our neighboring schools districts who are not on spring break are providing meals to children. Columbia Heights Public Schools district has graciously extended their meal distribution to ALL Fridley students.  In addition, Fridley students whose home school districts are Spring Lake Park or Minneapolis Public Schools can pick up meals at locations those school districts have set up.


Please remember:

  • Meals are available free of charge for children ages 18 years and under, and anyone over 18 years old who is eligible for transitional services as determined by the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE).

  • You do not have to be enrolled in your home school district to receive a meal.

  • You do not have to be eligible for free/reduced meals to receive a meal.

  • Children ages 18 and under can pick up a meal onsite. If an adult is picking up a meal for a child, that child must be present to receive a meal.

  • To comply with social distancing requirements, meals cannot be consumed on site.

These are challenging times where things change frequently as health officials learn more about the COVID-19. Please continue to practice the same recommendation for cold and flu prevention:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for a minute each time

  • Keep children home when they are sick and stay home when you are sick

  • Cover coughs and sneezes by coughing/sneezing into your arm (not hands)

  • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands

  • Seek appropriate medical care when you or your child is sick


Governor Walz's executive order closing schools also requires schools to provide care to any district enrolled student ages 4 years to 12 years old, if the student’s parent/parents are considered Emergency (Tier 1) or Essential (Tier 2) workers.
