The Preparing for E-5 In-Person Learning and Distance Learning Academy Guide is now available. This is another resource as we prepare for the transition that begins next week for Grades K-2 and February 1 for Grades 3-5.
Students in grades K-2 who are learning in-person can pick up a free bag breakfast in the morning. These students will also have access to free lunches, but they will need to request them daily with their teacher each morning. Students in grades K-2 who are in the Distance Learning Academy and students in grades 3-12 who are in distance learning can pick-up free meals at five different locations (AQ, HS, PH, PSI and SL) on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Families with a student eligible to begin Kindergarten in the Fall of 2021 should expect a mailing to arrive at their homes the week of January 18, 2021. This mailing will include the District's Kindergarten Guide brochure and the Park Spanish Immersion Elementary School application. The PSI application has a deadline date of February 16, 2021 for St. Louis Park residents.
The School Board for St. Louis Park Public Schools approved changes to the District’s Safe Learning Plan at a special meeting on Tuesday, December 22. District Administration will continue to monitor COVID-19 case counts in Hennepin County and locally in St. Louis Park, all safe learning model considerations, as well as guidance from state officials, and will consider updates to the District’s Safe Learning Plan when appropriate.
As a part of the process to hear stakeholder perspectives, Superintendent Osei will be hosting Listening Sessions over the course of this school year for students, parents/guardians, and staff to better understand the impact of the implementation of the District's educational delivery models.

I hope that this finds you and your family well on this snowy day! Our staff members are busy preparing for our family "connect times" and the transition to our return to in-person learning and our Distance Learning Academy. Please see the schedule below. For those K-2 families who will be joining us next week, please see below about bus route information. If you will be driving, we thank you in advance for your patience at the Kiss and Ride. We will utilize the same procedures that we had in the fall (also below), and we will monitor traffic and make adjustments as needed.
Even though we’re not physically in school, it’s important that you still call in when your child is sick – especially if it’s a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case. Our Health Services Team is here to help you even during distance learning to answer questions, work through guidance given by MN Department of Health, and support your family.
A new Elementary Family Handbook has been published and is now available on each of the four elementary school websites under both the Parent Resources tab and the Find it Fast section.
