These are challenging times for all of us. As the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we anticipate that there will be continuous changes in planning and updates from the Minnesota Department of Health and the Department of Education. We will continue to make decisions with the safety and well-being of our student and staff in mind, and provide up to date information to our families as we all do our part to slow down the spread of this virus.
We wish all our students and families a safe spring break. Take care of yourselves and your families, and we look forward to welcoming our students back to school after spring break.
