Independent School District 518 will resume in-person, grades 7 through 12 extra-curricular activities starting Monday, January 4

ISD 518 Students, Families, and Community Members,


Independent School District 518 will resume in-person, grades 7 through 12 extra-curricular activities starting Monday, January 4 in accordance with Minnesota Emergency Executive Order 20-103 issued by Governor Tim Walz. The Big South Conference will work within Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) bylaws to reschedule events that were postponed due to the pause. MSHSL requires each sports team to have a set number of practices before competition. 

Winter activity schedules will be updated in the next few weeks on the ISD 518 website and can be found under the “Activities” tab on the homepage. The activities department will work with our coaches to communicate when and where each sports team will practice on Monday, January 4. Student athletes must have a physical on file, submit a complete activities participation form, and pay fees before they are allowed to practice or participate in contest. Activity participation forms can be found on the district website under “Activities” and may be turned into the office at the middle school or high school. 

District 518 along with the Big South Conference and the MSHSL are committed to providing the safest environment possible for our students. Each program has put into place safety measures that are required to be followed during practices and events. The Big South Conference will provide each student-athlete with two guest passes admitting spectators into events for free. Spectators are required to wear a mask covering their mouth and nose throughout the contest. 

Unfortunately, spectators will not be allowed at home middle school girls and boys basketball games due to limited seating and required spacing at Worthington Middle School. The athletics department will be streaming as many events as possible through the website nfhsnetwork.com and Facebook Live. 

The District 518 Activities Department looks forward to a safe January 4 return and will provide further updates through our media outlets.


Josh Dale,
ISD 518 Activities Director

A partir del lunes 4 de enero el distrito escolar independiente 518 reanudará las actividades extracurriculares presenciales para estudiantes del 7º al 12º grado

Familias, estudiantes y residentes del Distrito Escolar 518,


A partir del lunes 4 de enero y de acuerdo con el decreto ejecutivo de emergencia del estado de Minnesota 20-103, decretado por el gobernador Tim Walz, el distrito escolar independiente 518 reanudará las actividades extracurriculares presenciales para estudiantes del 7º al 12º grado. La liga deportiva del sudoeste del estado funcionará de acuerdo con los reglamentos de la liga de escuelas secundarias de Minnesota (MSHSL, por sus siglas en inglés), para volver a programar los eventos que fueron pospuestos debido a la pausa de actividades deportivas y MSHSL exige que cada equipo deportivo tenga programada una cantidad de prácticas antes de competir.

El itinerario de las actividades deportivas de invierno será actualizado dentro de unas cuantas semanas en la página web del distrito escolar 518 y se podrá encontrar en la página inicial bajo la pestaña “Activities”.  El departamento de actividades deportivas colaborará con los entrenadores para comunicar cuando y donde cada equipo deportivo practicará el lunes 4 de enero. Los estudiantes deportistas deberán tener en su expediente un examen médico general, deberán entregar el formulario de participación deportiva debidamente llenado y deberán pagar la cuota de participación antes que se les permita practicar o participar en los torneos. Los formularios de participación están en la página web del distrito bajo la pestaña “Activities” y se pueden entregar en las oficinas de la Middle School o High School.

El distrito 518 junto con la liga deportiva del sudoeste de Minnesota y MSHSL están comprometidos a proporcionar a nuestros estudiantes el entorno más seguro posible. Cada programa ha implementado medidas de seguridad que exige su cumplimiento durante las prácticas y torneos. La liga deportiva del sudoeste de Minnesota proporcionará a cada estudiante deportista dos boletos que permitirá la entrada gratis de invitados espectadores a los torneos y se pide que durante todo el torneo los espectadores usen una mascarilla que cubra la boca y la nariz. 

Lastimosamente, no se permitirá espectadores en los juegos locales de baloncesto femenino y masculino de estudiantes de Middle School debido al límite de cupos y requisitos de distanciamiento en Worthington Middle School. El departamento de deportes transmitirá digitalmente tantos torneos como sea posible a través de la página Web nfhsnetwork.com y Facebook Live.

El departamento de actividades deportivas del distrito 518 anticipa con mucho gusto un regreso seguro el 4 de enero y proporcionará más actualización por los medios de comunicación. 


Josh Dale,
Director de actividades deportivas de ISD 518

All ISD 518 Students to Return to Hybrid Learning Model on January 4, 2021

The ISD 518 School Board has voted to move to a hybrid learning model for all ISD 518 students beginning January 4, 2021. Worthington Middle School and Worthington High School students will be in a 25% model, with students attending class in-person one day a week and distance learning the remaining days. Prairie Elementary and Learning Center students will be in a 50% model, with students attending class in-person two days a week and distance learning the remaining days. This is the same learning model that was utilized at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.

The board also discussed a possible move to a 50% plan for WMS and WHS students towards the end of January. The goal of the board in moving towards less restrictive models is to reach a full in-person learning model by the middle of February, if it is possible to do so safely. All changes to less restrictive models need to be approved by the ISD 518 School Board. If needed due to health and safety concerns, the district may move to a more restrictive model without board approval.
