Back to school update

First, I want to thank all of you for your patience as we work through our directives and options. As you know, Governor Walz released the final direction for Minnesota Public Schools on Thursday. Since that time, we have been breaking down the expectations and cleaning up our final plans. As promised in an email on July 22, I will send out our plan within a week of the Governor’s decision. I am hoping to get that out by Friday of this week. We are working with our transportation company and private schools to determine how we can coordinate to provide the best education for all students.

On Friday, you will get several messages from the District. One will be a survey that we will need you to complete for each child in your household. The survey will ask you for a definite answer about your student transportation needs and if your child(ren) will return to school this fall or if you will keep them home for distance learning.

Right now, our plan includes having students in PK-4 come to school every day and learn face to face with teachers. In grades 5-12, we will use a hybrid plan likely with students in two groups. “A” group will come Monday and Tuesday to learn face to face in the classroom and will be distance learning with the classroom teacher on Wednesday through Friday. “B” group will distance learn Monday through Wednesday and be face to face with classroom teachers Thursday and Friday.

Please watch for more specific details about these plans on Friday afternoon. The number of positive Covid-19 results in the school district counties determines our ability to have students in the school. This plan will be fluid and can change as we are provided with new data and positive counts for the counties. If we all exercise good practices to minimize the spread of Covid-19, we hope to have all students back in school soon. Please do your best to help keep these numbers down: wear a mask, wash your hands, and slow the spread.

Dear parents,

La Crescent School district requires students in grades 5-12 to utilize a device (Chromebook) for instruction. All students entering 5th or 9th grade and any student new to the district in grades 5-12 for the 2020-21 school year has two options for his/her student device. Students may choose the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) option or purchase one of the four recommended devices from Best Buy online store August 3-October 31, 2020.

If you choose the BYOD option, the student’s device should have a minimum of 10-inch screen size, wireless access, and be capable of running the Internet. Please note iPhones/Android phones/Ipad Mini/7 inch Nexus tablet does not meet this requirement. iPad is not recommended either, due to some issues with Google apps integration and state testing needs.

The Best Buy option is only available to students entering 5th or 9th grade and any student new to the district in grades 5-12 for the 2020-21 school year.

A detailed procedure, along with a unique code per eligible student for ordering your student Chromebook, will be emailed on August 3rd.

If your student qualifies for free or reduced lunch, the district will order the Chromebook for you, and it will be available for pick up from the Secondary School office during the first week of school(if the school is onsite at that time). If you think you qualify for Free/reduced lunch, be sure to submit necessary forms posted on our website or through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal: www.isd300.k12.mn.us.
