COVID booster clinic for 12+

District 622 is partnering with Ramsey County Public Health to offer another COVID booster clinic on Friday, January 28 from 3 - 6 p.m. at North High School.

Clinic staff will use the Pfizer vaccine to provide boosters for anyone 12 years and older. Boosters are available for people who received their second dose 6 months prior to Jan 28. People who received the Moderna or J&J vaccine initially can get a Pfizer booster.

Parents do not have to be present for 16-year-olds, but parents/guardians need to provide consent virtually through the registration link.

Next Possip survey coming soon

We use Possip to routinely survey families to learn more about their recent experiences in the district. We want to learn what is going well and what needs or concerns you have. Be on the lookout for their text or email soon.

Free Covid-19 Tests available

Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order 4 free at-⁠home COVID-⁠19 tests. The tests are completely free. Visit covidtests.gov to order your home's tests.

Help with food costs

Minnesota families who rely on free and reduced-price school lunch programs will soon get extra help to cover food costs when COVID-19 keeps their children home from school.

In January, the first round of Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer food benefits will go to a small number of families whose children attend schools that closed or shifted to remote learning for at least five consecutive days in September, October, or November. Future rounds of P-EBT benefits will include families whose children have to stay home because of quarantines for individual students, groups of students, or entire classrooms.

More than 200,000 Minnesota schoolchildren will be eligible for the P-EBT benefits for the 2021-22 school year, with $186 million in federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act. Families will receive $7.10 for each child for each missed day.

Learn more and see if your students qualify by visiting the District 622 P-EBT website.

New ovens, new skills!

Nutrition Services did training for all secondary schools nutrition staff on how to properly roast vegetables and use our new Rational ovens. They also trained on the new Lincoln Impinger oven on how to cook pizza using roasted vegetables! Yum!
