Fall 2021 Information
State and Federal guidelines now require school districts to post information about how a district plans to reopen in the fall of 2021. For some districts that were in hybrid or distance learning for a majority, if not all of the year, this is an important step. For Holdingford which was in person most of the year, this is a smaller step. The document below lays out the district's plan to return to a normal school setting.
If we have learned anything in the last year it is that things can change. At this time we don't foresee a school year like 2020-21 repeating itself and are planning to return to what is commonly understood as "normal".
