Weekly Update

Dear Students and Familes

The weeks are going by quickly. We are heading into the last month of Trimester 1. All families should have access to their child's' classes and can monitor their progress. If you are still have difficulty with that please contact our Technology Department at 651-674-1097 or email at parentsuppot@isd138.org

Sign Up for onsite support

Remember that onsite support sign up is now located on our Distance Learning Webpage. More and more students and families are utilizing this service. Thank you!

Picture Day Information

There has been a slight shift in our schedule for student picture day which were out of our control. In order to ensure 6 feet socially distancing we need to organize students according to their last name. Please do your best to adhere to your designated time slots. We also understand that it may be challenging for families to do so and we will accommodate those families.

**Picture Ordering after 48 hours of the time the picture was taken**

The links above are active for 48 hours after picture day. Once this code expires, families can still order pictures through MyLifetouch.com for their students with the codes (Portrait ID & Access Code) that are provided on the proof sheet. These proof sheets come with the bulk shipment of packages approximately 3-4 weeks after picture day. Every student that had their picture taken will receive a proof sheet.


If a parent has questions about their order, or are having troubles ordering, they can contact Customer Care.

K-5 Social Groups

We are excited to announce K-5 DLA will be starting social groups for each grade level. Social groups will give students an opportunity to interact with grade level peers in a positive environment twice a month for about 30 minutes. Participation is optional and not a requirement. These sessions will be led by Mikaela Matheny, an Educational Assistant in our DLA program. During social groups, students will interact with peers by playing fun games and activities as well as talking with one another.


We will be monitoring participation in the social groups and adjust the calendar as needed. If the demand and participation is there, we want to ensure we are aligning our resources to that need. Communication will be coming from the teachers on how to sign up.

Grade 9-12 Trimester 2 Registration

Attention students in grades 9-12. Please watch your email for an announcement regarding Trimester 2 schedules next week.
