MORA RETURN TO SCHOOL PLAN 2020-21

The following information and link was emailed out to all parents.


****Please have only one adult per family complete this survey by Thursday, July 23rd.****


In June, the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) told districts to begin planning for 3 different learning models for the 2020-21 school year. MDE will direct districts the week of July 27th on which model will be used for returning to public schools across the state. Even though we do not have final guidance from the state, we would like your feedback now so survey results can be used to guide decisions in the development of the Mora Return to School Plan 2020-21. The 3 learning models are:


  • In-person Learning Model: All students return to learning at school with space created for social distancing in classrooms and on buses.
  • Hybrid Learning Model: All students participate in a hybrid learning model which is a combination of both face to face instruction at school and distance learning instruction from home.
  • Distance Learning Model: All students receive remote instruction while at home.


School will undoubtedly be different this upcoming school year. Our goal is to continue to partner with families in providing the best educational experience we can regardless of the learning model and always with the safety of everyone as our #1 priority. Please know we will get information out to families as quickly as possible, most likely the week of August 10th.


****Thank you for your participation in this survey!****
