As you are aware Governor Walz announced the MN Safe Learning Plan for the Fall of 2020. With this Executive order I want to assure you that Litchfield Public Schools are ready! We are looking forward to the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year and our staff continue to work to make your child’s educational experience a positive one. If, for any reason you have questions or concerns about your child returning to in-person learning, please reach out to our building Principals for more information regarding online learning models.

As we plan for the 2020-21 school year, we are working with MDH and Meeker County Public Health, to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and determine how to keep our students, their families and our staff healthy. Our preparedness plan is available by clicking it on the lefthand side of this screen. The three scenarios of instruction we have prepared for are listed below.
• Scenario 1: In-person learning for all students
• Scenario 2: Flexible learning (in-person with social distancing and capacity limits & online learning) (referred to by MDE as Hybrid Learning)
• Scenario 3: Online learning only (referred to by MDE as Distance Learning)
Scenario 1: All students and staff return to school
Scenario 2: Flexible Learning
Wednesdays: Advisory check in, grade level meetings, remediation, deep cleaning of buildings
Scenario 2: Schedule
Scenario 3: Online Learning
-This scenario may be implemented if COVID-19 metrics worsen significantly enough to require the suspension of in-person learning.
