At its Aug. 17 meeting, the School Board approved the Moorhead Area Public School's Return to Learn plan. On September 8, 2020, students PreK-12 will began the year in a learning model to transition safely back into school and help students develop the necessary skills and practices necessary in each model. Spud Academy is available for families who want a full time virtual option.
Though the school year started in a hybrid model, we will likely pivot to the different models below at some time during the school year. An Incident Command Team is meeting weekly to monitor county case counts, trends, community factors, and the state's guidance. We will continue to work with our local and state public health agencies and the Minnesota Department of Education throughout the school year to determine the most appropriate model for staff and student health and safety, while providing our students with high quality education.
The chart below shows the most recent Clay County COVID case rates per 10,000 people. On the right you will see the Minnesota Department of Education learning model recommendations. These numbers along with other community data points are reviewed weekly by the Moorhead Area Public Schools Incident Command Team to determine the appropriate local learning model designation.
