Summer COVID Protocol for Staff and Programs

  • According to the Minnesota Department of Education, the mandatory Safe Learning Plan ended after the last student-contact day of the 2020-21 school year.

Stay Safe and Healthy

  • It is important everyone in the Lakeville Area continues to take measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community. The most important actions we can all take at this time are:

    • Know the symptoms of COVID-19 which include a fever, cough and/or shortness of breath.
      • You can learn more about how COVID-19 symptoms present on the MDH website.
    • Stay home if you are sick
      • If you feel the need to give your child fever-reducing medication, your child should not come to the school building. Children who are mildly ill are still contagious. 
    • Practice simple, everyday hygiene habits
      • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
      • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
      • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
      • Don’t share personal items like water bottles, chapsticks, utensils, etc.
      • Cover cough and sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue and place immediately in trash

     

    Get Vaccinated

    The Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector is a tool that helps Minnesotans find out when, where, and how to get a COVID-19 vaccine. After you fill out a simple form, the Vaccine Connector will:

    • alert you when you are eligible to receive a vaccine;
    • connect you to resources to schedule a vaccine appointment; and
    • notify you if there are vaccine opportunities in your area.

    Discrimination Surrounding COVID-19

    Lakeville Area Schools is committed to the safety and well-being of all students, and therefore will not tolerate discrimination against anyone for any reason. The combination of anxiety and the spread of misinformation about COVID-19 has lead to social stigma and acts of discrimination towards people of Asian heritage. It is important to know and share with your student that this virus is not tied to a specific ethnicity. If your student is experiencing discrimination due to COVID-19 or for any other reason, please contact your school’s principal or your student’s teacher.
