Distance Learning

Distance Learning

Distance Learning means that students will learn at home with access to educational materials and daily interaction with their teacher(s). Distance Learning can be accessed online through a computer or tablet device. Distance Learning without technology will only be available to families who have requested modifications. 


The State of Minnesota has ordered Distance Learning for schools to begin on Monday, March 30 and will continue through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
