March 20th Update

Dear East Central Community,

Thank you for your patience and understanding as our school district implements the requirements of Executive Order 20-02 from Governor Walz. I want to give you an update and reminders as it relates to the school children and families of our school district.

  1. Spring Break (March 23-27) – Next week is spring break. Childcare and meal delivery will NOT take place next week due to staff being on break. Our custodial department will be sanitizing the school building during the break.
  2. Meal Delivery and Grab & Go – After spring break, assuming school closure is extended home delivery and grab & go meals will continue. The number of meals we delivered this week increased each day, on Friday our staff delivered 449 meals. These meals are being delivered each morning to be sure our students are adequately fed.
  3. Distance Learning – Our teaching staff continues to work on their distance learning plans; many of our staff have begun to implement their plans and are working to support students. Teachers will be calling home to check in with students and answer any questions kids/parents may have. Please feel free to reach out your child’s teacher with your questions. Call the Principal’s offices at (320)245-2289 to be connected to teachers.
  4. Childcare (Closed March 23-27) – This week we quickly created a childcare program to comply with Executive Order 20-02. We are currently offering childcare for elementary aged students of school staff, health care workers, emergency personnel, and personnel providing correctional services. If you require this service and have not already signed up please contact the East Central School’s District Office at (320)245-6000. Our childcare program will be closed March 23-27 due to staff being on spring break.
