COVID-19: 2020-2021 School Year

  • ISD 728 will take direction from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Department of Education (MDE)  involving COVID-19. ISD 728 has primary responsibility for the health and safety of its students and employees in school. Therefore, ISD 728 will react swiftly and decisively to assure the good health and safety of those individuals if the need arises.

    This plan for addressing any COVID-19 incident is intended to serve the best interests of students, employees and families in the remote event of an incidence or threat of the Coronavirus infecting an Independent School District (ISD) 728 student, employee, volunteer or a family member.

    District and school teams continue to work on a variety of plans for a safe return to school in fall 2020. This page will be updated as plans and state guidance evolve.
