District Learning Schedule

Updated January 5, 2021 

On December 17, 2020 Governor Walz announced changes to the Minnesota Safe Learning Plan. The updated plan allows for full-time in-person learning (Monday-Friday) at the pre-k and elementary level if schools are able to comply with new comprehensive health and safety measures.

This is the timeline for returning elementary students to in-person learning: 

— January 14-15: There will be no school for pre-K-5th grade. These will be planning days which are required by the Minnesota Safe Learning Plan and the Minnesota Department of Education prior to students returning to the classroom.
— January 18: There will be no school in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day
— January 19: Pre-K-2nd grade students previously in hybrid will begin in-person learning. Students in grades 3-5 and Farmington Academy will continue in distance learning. This rolling start is due to the Minnesota Safe Learning Plan requiring that no more than three grade levels return to a building every two weeks.
— January 22: There will be no school. This is a regularly scheduled staff development day.
— February 1: 3rd-5th grade students previously in hybrid will begin in-person learning. Farmington Academy will continue in distance learning.

If you have specific questions regarding this transition to in-person learning please contact your learner’s school directly.

What about secondary students? 
The guidance from the Minnesota Department of Education in the 2020-21 Safe Learning Plan has not changed regarding the learning model for secondary students. We continue to meet with our regional support team and, as the COVID-19 case numbers in Dakota County decline, we hope to return secondary students to the classroom soon. We will continue to update you as information becomes available.
