Dear Mayer Lutheran Families:
On Sunday, Governor Tim Walz and Education Commissioner Mary Cathryn Ricker announced that all Minnesota public schools will close to students starting Wednesday, March 18, 2020. This closure will continue until March 27, 2020.
Mayer Lutheran High School will not be holding classes on Monday and Tuesday, March 16 and 17. The school will be open from 7:00am-4:00pm for students to come to campus and get any materials they may need (all of their books, folders, handouts, computer/charger, co-curricular supplies, etc.). Additionally, Mayer Lutheran will not conduct any co-curricular activities until March 30.
During the school closure for students, Mayer Lutheran High School plans to conduct eLearning for its students on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this coming week. Students will be expected to be engaged in their class schedule as normal: First Hour (8:10-8:55), Second hour (9:27-10:12), etc. The primary form of communication for teachers to students will be via email. Students should be checking their school email regularly during this time. Students will receive an email from each teacher by 3:00pm on Tuesday. The school bell schedule was emailed to Mayer Families. Starting March 30, 2020, per the instruction from the Minnesota Department of Education, student learning will continue for the rest of the school year. Plans are to continue face-to-face instruction, but clearly this could change. We will continue to communicate with families as things progress.
Our teachers have been given thoughtful planning to our distance learning plan, offering careful consideration for students in a variety of areas, including students receiving special education services.
As always, our first priority is the safety and well-being of our students. We also want to ensure every child has access to the education they need and deserve.
We will continue to keep you informed as we navigate COVID-19.
Principal, Mayer Lutheran High School
