Learning Model Update Underway
Today, Gov. Tim Walz announced adjustments to Minnesota’s Safe Learning Plan to bring elementary students back to school in person. Last month, Eden Prairie Schools set Jan. 4 as the date for returning from distance learning, while committing to monitoring the data and aligning to the guidance provided by the Safe Learning Plan. District administration immediately began working on a plan to implement the updated state guidelines to ensure we can start bringing elementary students back to school in a safe and sensible way following winter break. The updated guidance does not contain significant changes that impact learning models for secondary students, although the Governor did announce that practices for activities and athletics can begin following January 4th. Please watch for details in the coming days now that we have updated guidance.
