Review our Health and Safety Protocols for 2021-22

We are so excited for our students to begin school activities next week and hope you share in the excitement for the infinite possibilities that the new school year brings for each child.

Our back-to-school days for next week are as follows: 

  • August 30 and 31 are Kindergarten Transition Days for all kindergarten students (half days), and 

  • September 1 and 2 are Assessment Days for elementary students (by appointment) and Student Success Days for our middle school and high school students. 

These important opportunities at the start of the school year will help students build relationships with their teachers and classmates, and confidence to begin the year strong. Following these transitional back-to-school days, students in grades 1-12 will begin their traditional classes on September 8 and kindergarten students on September 9.

The disruptions in learning last school year were difficult for students, families and staff. This year, our main goal is to keep students learning in person at school all year. To do that, we must all do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our school communities. At a special meeting Thursday night, the School Board approved our district’s updated COVID-19 operational plan for the 2021-22 school year. The plan explains how school staff will handle positive cases and outlines the health and safety protocols we will continue to use in our schools this year.  

Face masks will be required in all District 196 buildings beginning Monday, August 30 because the spread of COVID-19 in Dakota County is currently at a “high transmission level.” The district plan uses the CDC’s transmission matrix to determine when face masks will be required or recommended. Face masks will be recommended when spread is “low” (a seven-day case rate of 0-9.99 per 100,000 residents) or “moderate” (10-49.99 cases per 100,000). Face masks will be required when the spread is “substantial” (50-100 cases per 100,000) or “high” (more than 100 cases per 100,000). The seven-day case rate for Dakota County on August 26 was 141, so face masks will be required to start the school year. We will monitor the case rate weekly and publish it on our district COVID-19 dashboard. Guidance on use of face masks will change to recommended after the transmission level in Dakota County drops to moderate for seven consecutive days, or additional guidance is provided.

Please take time to review the 2021-22 COVID-19 Operational Plan for Students, Families and Visitors to Schools and help us achieve our goal of keeping students learning at school all year. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school. Wishing you a great start to the school year!

Estimada comunidad del Distrito 196,

Estamos muy emocionados de que nuestros estudiantes comiencen las actividades escolares la próxima semana y esperamos que compartan la alegría por la infinidad de posibilidades que el nuevo año escolar trae para cada niño.

Los días 30 y 31 de agosto son días de transición para todos los alumnos de kínder y son jornadas de medio día. El 1 y 2 de septiembre son Días de Evaluación para los estudiantes de primaria(K-5)  y se hacen con cita previa. Los Días de Éxito Estudiantil son para nuestros estudiantes de secundaria(6-8) y preparatoria(9-12).

Los estudiantes de los grados 1 a 12 comenzarán sus clases tradicionales el 8 de septiembre y los estudiantes de kínder comienzan el 9 de septiembre.

Se requiere el uso de máscaras en todos los edificios del Distrito 196 a partir del lunes 30 de agosto porque la propagación del COVID-19 en el condado de Dakota está actualmente en el "nivel alto".

El plan del distrito utiliza la tabla de transmisión del CDC para determinar cuándo se requerirán o recomendarán mascarillas. Las mascarillas serán recomendadas cuando la propagación sea "baja" y serán requeridas cuando la propagación sea "sustancial" o "alta". Supervisaremos la tasa de casos semanalmente y la publicaremos en nuestro tablero de control COVID-19 del distrito.

Por favor, tómese un momento para revisar el Plan Operativo COVID-19 2021-22 para Estudiantes, Familias y Visitantes a las Escuelas y ayúdenos a lograr nuestra meta de mantener a los estudiantes aprendiendo en la escuela todo el año.

Si tiene alguna duda, comuníquese con la escuela de su hijo. Les deseamos un buen comienzo de año escolar.
