Dear Saint Peter Public Schools Families,

The last year and a half have changed how we do almost everything in our daily lives. We have learned a lot about living in the midst of a global pandemic. The situation, however, continues to change as new variants spread around the world. We are fortunate to have a little over half of the population of Nicollet County vaccinated. Those who are not vaccinated, including those under the age of 12, remain at risk of contracting the virus.

Our 21-22 Covid Plan includes protocols and practices to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Our protocols will vary dependent upon the health of our community, and guidance from the Minnesota Department of Ed- ucation, Department of Health, the Governor, the Center for Disease Control, and the Federal Government. We will continue to alter and adapt the plan as we learn more or as needs change. There may be times when we need to add more protocols for protection and other times that we can remove the requirement.

As we begin the 2021-2022 school year, we are excited to have a more “normal” start to our school year with everyone attending in-person, five days a week. We look forward to cheering on our Saints from the sidelines, listening to the choir and the band, attending musicals and plays, and continuing the traditions we all love to be a part of— including partnering with the community to provide our students with the best possible educational journey.

Kind Regards,
Bill Gronseth
Superintendent, Saint Peter Schools
