After learning of the Governor’s plan today local superintendents from Stearns county schools had a meeting and then the Holdingford Supt. and the School Board met for an emergency meeting. While the Governor is requiring closure of schools on Wednesday, the School Board and Supt. discussed all options and have chosen to close school on Monday and Tuesday as well. We have been given a lot of information and requirements to develop our plan for the upcoming weeks and are choosing to focus on preparing to meet those expectations.We as a district know that we are only beginning to comprehend the impact this is going to have on our students, staff, and community. There will be much more information to come in the upcoming days and weeks but there are a couple immediate items to mention.
First, our school nursing staff will be reaching out to families to have a conversation about the supply of prescriptions we have for individual students.
Next, there will be no Kids Zone services on Monday as they begin to plan for the care expectations set up by the state. Kids Zone staff will be in communication with families regarding the upcoming weeks.
Finally, if there are essential items that your child needs to get from the school. Please contact either the high school or elementary office to set up a time to do that starting Tuesday.
