A summary of recent School Board action
Statement of student support
At the beginning of the meeting, Board chair Jonathan Weinhagen read the following statement from Mounds View Public Schools, acknowledging that this is a troubling time for many.
“Schools are a reflection of our communities. And our communities are struggling. As a district, we are angered by the police shooting in Brooklyn Center that ended the life of Daunte Wright. We extend our deepest condolences to his loved ones and to all who have been impacted by the unnecessary and tragic loss of yet another Black man. Events like these can understandably trigger trauma in children who are trying to make sense of the world around them. These events include the recent shootings in Boulder and Atlanta -- as well as the ongoing trial of Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis. In Mounds View Public Schools, our staff members are talking with students about what they are feeling, seeing or experiencing. Please know that we are committed to addressing the inequities that exist in our schools and helping support students and families during these trying and difficult times.”

The Board approved a recently revised 2021-22 school year calendar. The calendar was updated with a modified start date of Wednesday, September 8, due to the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashana. The previous start date was Tuesday, September 7. Visit the calendars page at moundsviewschools.org/calendars to see the current calendar and the next two school year calendars.
