Current Situation - Eden Prairie Schools Will Remain in Distance Learning the Rest of the School Year
Governor Tim Walz announced today that K-12 schools would remain in distance learning. For Eden Prairie Schools, that is through June 9 for K-11 students and June 4 for seniors. Eden Prairie Schools is living out its mission to inspire each student through these unprecedented times. Our teachers and staff will continue to refine distance learning so that each student is supported in personalized learning. We will continue to gather student and family feedback to help us improve and to maintain the educational excellence for which Eden Prairie is known. The success of our schools is due to the tremendous support of our community. Thank you.
May 1 and 4 will be non-student contact days, as ordered by the governor. These days will be used by teachers and staff to prepare for the rest of the school year. We will continue to follow our district calendar: May 8 is a scheduled non-school day and May 25 is Memorial Day. Please note meals will be distributed Monday, Wednesday and Fridays through June 29. As alternate plans are developed around end-of-year events, schools will provide you with updates.
Collecting items from schools
Look for an update from your principal with a schedule on when and how to collect personal items from school. We will take precautions for social distancing, but we will make sure students have time to collect their items.
Meals from Eden Prairie Schools will continue to be distributed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday through June 29. They are for any child 18 and under that resides in Eden Prairie, as well as ALL Eden Prairie Schools students (early childhood through TASSEL). We encourage participation and there is no economic requirement to receive meals and may be a relief during this time. Please review our distribution schedule.
Mental health and wellness
Technology support & devices over the summer
As your student continues to use their device for distance learning, please take advantage of support that is available by calling 952-975-7094 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students in grades K-11 can keep their district-issued device over the summer. Look for more information as we near the end of the year with details to include technology support over the summer and plans for 12th grade students to return their devices.
Thank you again for all you are doing to support your students during this time.
