Due to the discovery of two positive COVID-19 cases within our small learning community, Discovery Woods will be moving to Distance Learning for approximately four weeks beginning tomorrow, Sept 16, 2020.  If you have extenuating circumstances, please email, and we will help you find a resolution. At this time, we are planning to return to in-person instruction on Monday, October 12th. Unfortunately, due to the nation-wide electronics shortage, the Chromebooks we ordered are still backordered. If you have a device your child can use, please do so, and, if you need a device for your child, please contact us. Specific classroom plans will be coming from your student's teacher.  Thank you so much for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.

Discovery Woods Administration

Dear Discovery Woods Families:

The health and safety of all students in Discovery Woods is a priority for our district. There was a phone conference this morning with all school leaders regarding the announcement made at 10:00am this morning to the public. Due to the COVID-19 status in Minnesota Govenor Walz
and his staff have issued that MN Schools need to close by Wednesday, March 18th and continue to be closed through Friday March 27th to begin talks of distance learning if it is needed. After reaching out to ISD 181 regarding their plan I was invited to attend their administrative decision meeting this morning.

Discovery Woods has made the decision to close beginning tomorrow, Monday, March 16, 2020. The Discovery Woods Board will be meeting tomorrow afternoon prior to their meeting to discuss distance learning and making sure students are still getting the appropriate education that they need. Teachers and staff will continue to discuss distance learning options as well.

Please continue to watch for communication from Discovery Woods as we work through this issue.

Kristi Crocker
Executive Director
