COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan
We will continue to implement COVID-19 health and safety strategies in accordance with the guidance from the State of Minnesota.
Academic Recovery and Supports
Lakeville Area Schools will provide learning opportunities through the 2021-22 school year including extended year programs, regular instructional programs, and student support services.
Community Engagement in the Safe Learning Plan
Throughout the 2020-21 school year we engaged our community as we responded to the COVID-19 pandemic and provided safe learning models for our students. The feedback from our students, staff, families and community was essential as the pandemic fluctuated, as well as for the production of the 2021-22 Safe Return to Learning Plan. Stakeholder engagement opportunities have included surveys, committees, work groups, public presentations, and public comment.
As the District and our schools prepared for a safe return to learning in the Fall of 2021, the community was invited to share feedback on this plan via a survey sent to families and staff, which was open through Aug. 15.
Government Relief Aid Spending Plan
The federal government has passed three major relief packages in response to COVID-19. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES), the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA), and the America Rescue Plan Act. The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is administering multiple grant opportunities from these relief packages, including three rounds of formula-based Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding.
To see Lakeville Area Schools' state-approved spending plan for its ESSER III funds, please visit this MDE webpage and search for Lakeville in the search box above the table.
We recommend every family regularly review the following:
- Isolation and Quarantine Flowchart for Students/Families (English) | (Español)
- Isolation/Quarantine Calculator
- The Minnesota Department of Health COVID-19 website
- Daily Self Screening
We have a tool to help families, students and staff determine when they can return to school following the isolation/quarantine timelines detailed above. Click the link below to go to our Isolation/Quarantine Calculator. For students or staff who test positive for COVID-19, enter the date the positive test was taken in the Isolation Calculator. For students or staff who live with someone who tests positive for COVID-19, enter the date their positive test was taken in the Quarantine Calculator. The tool will display the date the impacted student or staff member can return to school/work, provided they have no symptoms and have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication.
