Students, Parents, Guardians, Staff & Community: 3/17/2020
On March 14, 2020 Governor Walz issued Executive Order 20-02 that announced all Minnesota schools would close to students on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 and extend through March 27, 2020 in response to COVID-19 pandemic.
On March 18-20, Pine City Staff will be preparing instructional plans that will allow meaningful, relevant learning to take place if schools remain closed beyond March 27, 2020.
Pine City teachers and staff are developing lessons utilizing a distance learning model for every level in grades PreK-8 and each graduation requirement course for grades 9-12. Distance Learning has been defined by the Minnesota Department of Education as: Students engaging in distance learning; having access to appropriate educational materials; and receiving daily interaction with their licensed teacher(s).
March 23-27, 2020: Pine City Schools will observe the prior scheduled Spring Break.
March 30, 2020: Please watch for additional updates and information regarding school operations. According to the Governor’s proclamation, all students will return to their studies on March 30, 2020. Yet to be announced is whether schools will implement distance learning or return to face-to-face instruction at school.
