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.
