COVID-19 & Influenza Information 🇪🇸 🇸🇴

May 27, 2020

Dear Saint Peter and MVED Community and Families,

Good evening. Tomorrow is the end of our “Distance Learning” 4th quarter and the last day of the 2019-2020 school year. This has certainly been an unusual and stressful time for students and their families, as well as for our staff and administration. That being said, we want to congratulate everyone on doing their very best to make Distance Learning work these past ten weeks.

We encourage everyone to participate in our end of the year events scheduled for tomorrow evening. Information on the activities can be found on our website.

We also want to provide you with the following information:

  • The Virtual Graduation Ceremony will take place on Friday, May 29th beginning at 7:00PM. The ceremony will be broadcast on the local access television station and via the school district website.
  • School-owned technology, equipment, textbooks and other materials will be collected over the next few work days. Specific plans for your child’s school have been shared by the building principals.
  • Credit Recovery for the Class of 2020 will take place in June. All other summer school will be held between July 20th and August 14th. Specific information about different summer school options will be communicated to you by each site in the district.


We also want to let you know that plans are being developed for a variety of return to school scenarios for the fall of 2020 and beyond. Whether back in a normal manner, continuing with a Distance Learning format, or offering a Hybrid Model of education, we want to ensure you that we will be prepared to offer the best education possible to all learners in the school district.

Please know that we will continue to do all we can to support our “Saint Peter Saints.”

Sincerely,

Jeff Olson, PhD
Superintendent, Saint Peter Public Schools

Dear Saint Peter and MVED Community and Families,

Good evening. Beginning tomorrow, we have 10 days left in our “Distance Learning” 4th quarter of the school year. We plan, with your help, to finish the school year strong with an “eye” on providing time for our teachers to connect with students and time for students to connect with one another.

We also want to provide you with the following information:

  1. Plans are being developed to collect school owned technology, equipment, textbooks and other material at the end of the school year. Specific information on the process we will be using will be shared with you by your student’s Principal next week.
  2. We are awaiting direction for the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) regarding whether summer school will be in a Distance Learning or in-person format. We hope to share plans with you no later than May 22nd.
  3. We are planning to continue our distribution of meals over the summer months. Information on the distribution plan will be shared by May 28th.

Please know that we will continue to do all we can to support our “Saint Peter Saints.”

Sincerely,

Jeff Olson, PhD
