Safe Return to Learning Plan for 2021-22

  • Lakeville Area Schools has posted its Safe Return to Learning Plan. Lakeville Area Schools will be offering full-time in-person learning for all students for the 2021-22 school year. We are committed to providing world-class learning prioritizing the safety, health and well-being of our school community. Our Safe Return to Learning Plan includes academic learning support to help students recover from the past year of interrupted learning, as well as health and safety measures to help mitigate COVID-19. 

    As we continue to monitor State and Federal guidance, this plan is subject to change based upon 14-day case rates for Dakota County (see Dashboard) and any future guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Department of Education (MDE).

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 throughout the past school year 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 prepare for a safe return to learning this Fall, the community was invited to share feedback on this plan via a survey sent to families and staff, which was open through Aug. 15.

  • We are committed to providing world-class learning for every student in a safe and healthy environment. The District and its schools will continue to provide our community with information and updates for 2021-22 school year.
