Irondale Reopening

  • Safely reopening schools is one of the District's primary goals for the 2020-21 school year. Planning for reopening remains underway at both the District and school levels. In addition to the District plan, each school will have a personalized and unique plan that will be shared on this page. Check this page in the coming weeks for updates. 

    As directed by the Minnesota Department of Education, planning continues to focus on three possible scenarios, listed below. By the week of July 27, the state plans to announce which of the scenarios will be in place for Minnesota public schools. 

    • A full return of students in all schools for in-person learning.
    • A partial return of students in some schools with a hybrid approach of distance learning and in-person learning.
    • No immediate return of any students and a continuation of distance learning.


    Families can expect to receive email updates at key times throughout the summer as more guidance is available from the state and as decisions are finalized. In the absence of communication, please understand that planning is continuing and no decisions have been made.
