We appreciate the help and support of our staff, students and families as we address this continually evolving situation.  We’ll continue to communicate as often as possible using many tools, including www.ISD709.org/updates   

As part of the state’s coronavirus response, Governor Tim Walz ordered that schools be closed to students by Wednesday March 18 through Friday March 27. The purpose is to allow schools and districts time to plan for longer-term school closures.

In accordance with the Governor's order, Duluth Public Schools will be closed beginning Wed March 18 through Friday March 27.  
•    We plan to provide school for students on Monday 3/16 and Tuesday 3/17. We know there are families who may choose to keep their children home.  Please call your school and it will be considered an excused absence. 
•    Beginning Monday 3/16, all after school activities and clubs are cancelled with the exception of the KEY Zone program.  KEY Zone will remain open Monday and Tuesday.  
•    Consistent with the Governor’s order, the Minnesota State High School League announced that effective from March 18 through March 27 there will be no MSHSL activities and athletics at any member school.
•    Before the end of the day Tuesday 3/17, families should make arrangements to pick up their child’s medication from school. 
•    Everyone has questions about COVID-19, including children.  Here are a few tips for talking with children about this subject.

Thank you for your patience and commitment as we navigate this unprecedented situation.
