Staff Distance Learning Letter
Wednesday, March 25th, Governor Walz issued a “Stay at Home” order. The “Stay at Home” order requires public and charter schools to continue providing essential services. Since performing these services may not require everyone to be in our building at the same time every day, district leadership will be working to create a system of staff rotation based upon meeting our mandate for providing essential services. Such a staff rotation may allow staff members to work from home some days, while rotating into their buildings as needed.

Our goal is to provide meaningful work for all staff. With that in mind, staff could be performing tasks that they do not normally do. Some staff will be working from home, some staff will be here providing the essential services required by the governor, some staff will be helping in other areas that need attention.

We hope to have these rotations in place for staff as soon as possible. Our goal is to provide these rotations while still maintaining the fidelity of services as we provide distance learning, nutritious meals, transportation, and childcare. As this is a very fluid situation, we will be revisiting our plans often to ensure that we are providing the services we need to provide, as well as taking care of our staff.

Teachers: For Monday, March 30th, Jill and Ryan will send a separate document defining your roles and outlining your expectations before the end of the day.

Paraprofessionals: For Monday, March 30th, Travis will be sending a separate document defining your roles and outlining your expectations before the end of the day. This will include to whom, and when, you report on Monday.

Other hourly staff: Your immediate supervisor will be in contact to clarify your roles and expectations.

Thank you.
