Our COVID-19 Safe Learning Plan has been a work in progress and has evolved and changed as new requirements and guidance have been issued by the State of Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Health, the Minnesota Department of Education and the Centers for Disease Control.

Per State Executive Orders all current COVID-19 related restrictions are scheduled to expire on or before 11:59 p.m. on June 30, 2021.
