Distance Learning Begins

March 25, 2020

 Dear WPS Families:

Governor Walz has announced the implementation of distance learning for all schools for students in Minnesota through Monday May 4. 

Warroad Public Schools will continue to provide educational services that we began implementing this week.  Continue to communicate with your teachers through Schoology and email for educational content.  We will continue to provide sack lunches for all students on a “grab and go” basis from the school as well as designated satellite locations. 

If you are a member of the emergency services profession (law enforcement, fire department, EMTs, etc.) and/or the medical profession (direct care staff) that has school aged children enrolled in the Warroad School District from pre-kindergarten through 12 years old we will continue to provide supervision for your children during what would be regular school hours including extended care, 6:00 A.M.-6:00 P.M.

Please remember the basics for prevention – thorough and frequent hand washing, covering sneezes and coughs, cleaning frequently touched surfaces, practicing social distancing (maintain a 3 – 6 foot separation between you and others) and staying away from large gatherings of people.

As more information is made available, we will post on our website, Facebook and through Schoology.

This is the plan as of now. Like everything involved in this crisis, this plan has been evolving and this is what we have in place as of Wednesday, March 25th.

We are in this together as a school and a community. As we know more, we will share more.

Thank you,

Dr. Shawn W. Yates, Superintendent
