In recognition of this important declaration, we encourage District 196 families to explore the rich history of indigenous people around the United States and in Minnesota.
Our committed staff works wonders with children every single day to ensure they reach their infinite possibilities.
Each school will share site-specific details about the change at their building. There will be no school for all preschool and elementary students only Nov. 19 and 20.
Applications must be submitted by Jan. 6, 2021, for elementary magnet schools and by Feb. 10, 2021 for Valley Middle School of STEM. Applications for the School of Environmental Studies are accepted throughout the year.
The district has a process and timeline for determining when to shift to a different learning model based on multiple data points and factors.
Both calendars are based on an all in-person learning model, although the district does plan to continue to offer the 196 Digital Academy as an all distance learning option for families.
Register now for fall learning opportunities. As always, the safety of you, your family and our staff is our primary concern.
District 196 students are eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch every school day, whether in school or distance learning at home. A la carte items available at school are not included in this program.
Quick Start Guides are being issued with the iPad and are also available online. The Quick Start Guide is also available in English, Spanish and Somali. Parents can use this guide to identify their child's password and connect the iPad to WiFi.
What happens if the iPad issued by the school gets damaged? In previous years the district offered an Optional Protection Plan for $20/device. The decision was made for this school year, 2020-21, to automatically enroll ALL iPads in this coverage at no cost to families.
