Instruction for MPS students will continue this winter even on days when winter weather makes travel difficult. While some of us will be sad to see “snow days” go, the State of Minnesota has approved up to five “e-learning days” for schools annually. E-learning days allow students to continue learning and also reduce the chance that schools will have to make up days at the end of the school year due to snow days.
When severe weather occurs this winter and MPS determines that travel to schools and buildings is unsafe, staff and families will be notified that students should remain at home and continue instruction via e-learning. The decision to move to e-learning will be announced by 6 p.m. the night before or no later than 5:30 a.m. on the day of an e-learning day. Information will be shared via all major news media, the MPS homepage, MPS social media, and emails, robocalls and texts to staff and families.
Teachers will post lessons before 9:00 AM. Additionally, teachers will be available to respond to student needs via google meets during the times listed below. The google meet links for the Synchronous Morning meeting, and teacher google meets will be posted in students See Saw by the beginning of the day.
