Health & Safety

Masks Required on Buses and Inside Schools

State officials have given school districts the responsibility to determine COVID-19 mitigation strategies at the local level this school year. The 2021-22 COVID-19 Operational Plan for Families, Students and Visitors to Schools that was unanimously approved by our School Board on August 26 requires all students, staff and visitors in all District 196 buildings to wear a face mask indoors when the local transmission level is “substantial” or “high” as measured by the CDC transmission matrix. Currently, the transmission level in Dakota County is high, meaning face masks will be required in our schools to start the year, just as they are required to enter a growing number of businesses, government buildings and on all public transportation and airline flights.

Your partnership is critical to the success of our students. We expect students, staff and visitors to comply with the mask requirement, as outlined in Administrative Regulation 708.7, COVID-19 Masks, until the COVID-19 spread in Dakota County drops to the “moderate” level of transmission. Masks help reduce spread and give us the best opportunity to provide consistent in-person education all year. Just like last year, students will have opportunities for mask breaks during the day, such as at lunch or while outside. If parents and guardians are concerned about their child’s ability to safely wear a mask, they should refer back to Administrative Regulation 708.7 COVID-19 Masks.

Our district is committed to doing all we can to ensure students can continue learning in person this school year. This includes HEPA filters in all learning spaces, social distancing, recommending COVID-19 vaccinations for those who are eligible to receive them and requiring masks when the local transmission level is substantial or high.

Review and Update Emergency Information

If you haven’t already done so, please update your family’s information on record with the district by completing the online review in your Infinite Campus Parent portal account. This is the one time each year the district asks parents to complete the review to ensure schools have up-to-date contact information, emergency contacts, student health records and more. It is important for schools to have current information in order to be notified in case of emergency, changes in the school schedule and to receive regular communication from the schools and district.

All District 196 parents and guardians are encouraged to have an Infinite Campus Parent account of their own to stay involved in their child’s education, and to access end-of-term report cards, transcripts, attendance and other important information. Parents who do not have their own Infinite Campus Parent account can request an activation key from the office at their child’s school. For information on setting up an Infinite Campus Parent account and completing the online review, visit the Family Resources page on our district website.

We look forward to partnering with you to make 2021-22 a safe, fun and productive school year for all of our students and families.

New: Sports Results/Scoreboard



The boys cross country team competed at today’s Rovn/Bauman Invitational at Galewoods Farm in Minnetrista. The weather was pristine and the course was in great condition for today’s race.

The day started off with the JV athletes taking to the trails. Right from the start sophomore Charles Mathews lead the JV contingent up the hill and through the first kilometer of the race. Over the next two kilometers his teammates slowly began to gain on him, but running in a position that he had never been in before gave Mathews a new strength to hold off his teammates, and most of the field, to finish in a new personal best time of 19:06 which was good for 14th out of nearly 300 runners. The JV contingent continued to maintain a small gap, from Mathews in first to junior Charley Setterlund in 5th was only a separation of 32 seconds and 17 places. This tight group helped the Lightning finish in 4th place. The other members of this top 5 were senior Alex Breimhurst, and juniors Eli Munson and Nate Buckley. Sophomore Kyle Dungy and freshman Brady Belinske each knocked almost 40 seconds off of their PR.

In the varsity race the Lightning were initially lead through the first 1k by senior PJ Lasota, he was closely followed by seniors Hunter Dunne and Nate Getman. Over the next thousand meters Dunne and Getman reeled PJ in to take over the lead for the Lightning. At this same time senior Ethan Agoranos took over the lead of Eastview’s #5, 6, & 7 runners of himself, senior Ethan Taylor and junior Thomas Adamson. From 2k-4k Hunter Dunne consistently clipped by runners moving himself up from the mid 40th place to the top 20. Running the final 1000m with a confident and purposeful stride (and two shoes unlike last week), he was able to clip a few more runners to finish in 18th place overall and run the 9th fastest time in school history on this course of 16:51.1. Getman finished in 27th place. Agoranos, like Dunne, with a consistency and purpose during the middle portion of the race that helped fuel him to pass nearly 80 runners, possibly making the largest move of any athlete in the field finishing with a new personal best time of 18:10.4. Ethan Taylor also made the most of good weather and favorable running conditions to finish with a 20 second PR.
