Information for School Year 2021 – 2022


Effective Monday, October 18, 2021, the current ISD 518 masking mandate will end, and masking will become optional in all ISD 518 facilities. Masking on Busses will still be required according to the current order in place.  ISD 518 recommends masking to reduce the spread of and exposure to COVID-19.  However, we believe each person should be responsible for their health and well-being. The attached COVID-19 Protocols will be in place as we continue to deal with Positive COVID-19 cases and exposures in our school facilities.  It is important that if you feel sick you stay home until you are feeling better.  If you have been exposed to a Positive COVID-19 case and experience symptoms you need to stay home, and we encourage you to get tested.  ISD 518 will continue to monitor the current situation and work with local health officials to determine the best practices to keep our staff and students safe.  All positive Staff cases should be reported to the District COVID contact and all positive student cases should be reported to the building nurse so we can complete the required reporting to Minnesota Department of Health and notify our school community of positive exposures.

We ask that you respect others personal choice to mask or not to mask.  If you are asked to mask during a meeting with students, staff or community members due to personal health concerns, we would expect everyone to be considerate in their actions.

La orden del uso de mascarilla terminará el 18 de octubre 2021.

A partir del lunes 18 de octubre, 2021, la orden actual del Distrito 518 en cuanto al uso de mascarilla terminará y el uso de mascarilla será opcional en todas las instalaciones del Distrito 518. Pero,de acuerdo con la orden actual, se seguirá exigiendo el uso de mascarilla en el autobús. El Distrito 518 recomienda el uso de mascarilla para reducir la propagación y contagio de la COVID-19. Sin embargo, nosotros creemos que cada persona debe ser responsable por su salud y bienestar personal. Los protocolos COVID-19 que se anexan a este anuncio seguirán vigentes según continuamos lidiando con los casos COVID positivos y contagios en nuestras escuelas. Si usted se siente enfermo, es importante que se quede en casa hasta que se sienta mejor. Si ha expuesto a un caso positivo de esta enfermedad y está teniendo síntomas, quédese en casa, y exhortamos se haga la prueba del COVID-19. El Distrito 518 continúa siguiendo de cerca la situación actual y colaborará con los funcionarios de salud para determinar las mejores prácticas para mantener nuestros estudiantes y empleados sanos. Todos los casos positivos en empleados se reportarán al contacto COVID del distrito y todos los casos positivos en estudiantes se reportarán a la enfermera de la escuela para así hacer el informe completo al Departamento de Salud de Minnesota y avisar a nuestra comunidad escolar de los casos positivos.

Pedimos que se respete la decisión personal de usar mascarilla o no y si debido a un problema personal de salud, se pide que uses mascarilla durante una reunión con estudiantes, empleados o miembros de la comunidad, esperamos que todos sean considerados con sus acciones.
