COVID-19 Update
Updated Mask Policy: On February 25th the CDC announced new metrics for determining COVID-19 community levels. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area.

Under the new metrics, the community level for Hennepin County is now Medium.

You can read more about community levels and COVID prevention steps based on community levels at the CDC website.

Effective Monday, March 7th, masks will be “strongly recommended” instead of “required”    during times when the community level in Hennepin county is Low or Medium. When the community level is High, masks will be required. This applies to all staff, clinic clients, and students in the school and adult education programs regardless of vaccination status.

The sick policy will remain the same. Quarantine and isolation requirements will remain the same.

If you have any questions, please contact Allison Barosko at [email protected]. Thank you!

2022-23 School Year Re-enrolment
Being that AOWL has Evergreen Contracts, the contract you previously signed ensures continuous enrollment for your child. This means that you don’t have to hassle with a contract every year; your student will be automatically enrolled in the next school year unless you notify [email protected] of withdrawal by Friday, March 11th.

Reminder: we will be placing a $1,000 deposit for next year on your SmartTuition account after the 11th of March.

We are honored to serve all of our AOWL students and families, and we look forward to seeing your family again next year.
