Dear Prep Community,
Like many of you, we are closely following the evolving situation on COVID-19. This morning I, along with District 834 leaders and leaders from other local charter and parochial schools, participated in a conference call with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE). At this time, MDH has provided guidance to schools to help slow the transmission of COVID-19 and protect the most vulnerable populations, however, broad school closures are not being recommended or supported. In addition, distance learning options are not being allowed at this point.
Governor Tim Walz is planning a news conference at 1 p.m., which may provide additional guidance to schools. We will be tuning in to the press conference and reconvening to continue our planning. We will provide you with further information later today.
Thanks for your attention to this.
Jon Gutierrez
Executive Director
