Please help us keep our students and staff safe! No staff or visitor should enter the school building if they:

  • cough
  • shortness of breath
  • muscle aches
  • sore throat 
  • chills
  • loss of taste
  • have been in close contact with a person with diagnosed or suspected COVID-19

We encourage you to follow the advice of the Minnesota Department of Health to help prevent the spread of this illness:

  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick
