Announcements

Severe Weather Building Closure

The decision to move to e-learning will be announced by 6 p.m. the night before or no later than 5:30 a.m. on the day of an e-learning day. Information will be shared via all major news media, the MPS homepage, MPS social media, and emails, robocalls and texts to families. Please ensure that your family‚Äôs contact information is updated by contacting your school office. 

  • Distance learning is for all student classes pre-K-12, as well as early childhood programs and Transition Plus
  • School buildings will be closed to staff and students
  • All after-school field trips and after-school student activities and events will be canceled unless specifically stated
  • All student-based events sponsored by MPS or its schools will be canceled unless specifically stated
  • Minneapolis Kids before and after school childcare will be closed
  • Athletic events will be canceled unless specifically stated
  • Community Education and Adult Education events and classes will be canceled
  • Outside events that have obtained permits to operate within MPS facilities will be canceled unless specifically stated

Technology is a key component of e-learning, so please take steps to ensure your student has both a device and internet connection.

  • Devices should be brought to and from school every day, ensuring that students have their devices at home with them each evening should e-learning be needed. Every student who needs one should have been assigned a device that allows them to connect to an online learning platform, such as Seesaw or Google Classroom. Please see your school if you have questions about this.
     
  • Internet service at your home should be available for your student. If your home is not currently connected to the internet, consider:
    • The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB), a low-cost program to help households pay for internet service and get a discount on a device.
    • Contacting your school about alternative internet options such as a hotspot. MPS has limited hotspot availability, so other options should be explored first.
