As Minnesota school districts and charter schools plan for the upcoming school year, so are Minnesota families. The Minnesota Department of Education has created a guide to give families a quick overview of the education and health guidance for schools. This document is intended to help families know what information they should expect from their child’s school. The guide is available in English, Hmong, Somali and Spanish on the Supporting Student and Families COVID-19 Resources page
