The North Dakota Department of Health, the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction, and the North Dakota Governor’s Office have issued the North Dakota K-12 Smart Restart Guidance for the 2020-2021 school year. Together with our local public health unit and school board, we will be working to meet these expectations by updating our existing Distance Learning Plan, as well as developing a Health and Safety Plan. Both plans will serve as a compass of sorts, to help us navigate through the uncertainty of educating our students during a pandemic. Once these plans are approved by our school board, they will be published both in our Facebook group as well as our school‘s website. While it’s an incredibly overwhelming process, we are anxious and eager to begin developing a plan that will allow us to get our kiddos and teachers back into our classrooms where they belong! If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
