Due to the uncertainty of school district schedules in the coming weeks, we will be reviewing decisions as we wait for guidance from the State on how operations and programs will proceed. Thank you for your continued partnership and support as we navigate this quickly evolving situation. We will continue to review the information at our disposal and will continue to communicate with you as we make decisions regarding operations and procedures in the next two weeks.
In order to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19, Edina Public Schools and Edina Community Education have a coordinated management planning effort to guide action steps in this situation. The district and community education will continue to follow guidance from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Minnesota Department of Health and county public health agencies .
