Bullying Prevention

Students have the right to be safe and free from threatening situations on school property. Bullying and Cyberbullying are obstacles to the learning process for students and teachers and should be reported to a school staff member.

Bullying is defined as intimidating, threatening, abusive or harming behavior that is objectively offensive, repeated or forms a pattern, and creates an actual or perceived imbalance of power between the student engaging in prohibited behavior and the target of that behavior. Cyberbullying is this same prohibited conduct carried out through the use of digital technology.

Establish healthy habits early to ensure your child’s success

Instilling healthy habits and routines (adequate sleep/nutrition) and consistent attendance ensures a student’s success in school even as early as kindergarten. We know that too many absences/tardies, for whatever reason, can cause children to fall behind both academically and socially.

Social Workers

The goal of the elementary school social work program is to partner directly with families, educators, students and our communities to address and overcome barriers to academic achievement. Ultimately this partnership provides the necessary support, guidance and nurturance that are essential to academic success and sound life decisions.


Psychologists provide mental health counseling and crisis management services that address needs at school and home to help students succeed academically, emotionally and socially. They also support students through administering, interpreting and integrating psychological and educational assessments to determine needs related to learning.

Learning Support


Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for students needing academic help with core classes including English, math and science. One of three levels of intensity is chosen for participating students.

Special needs

Special Education and special accommodations (504 plans) help students with special needs learn in the most unrestrictive environment possible.


One-on-one/peer-to-peer assistance for any student that wants/needs additional educational support in one or more specific areas.

Equity and Cultural Diversity

Pursuant to MN Statute 124D.86, districts with racially isolated schools are required to develop and submit an integration plan to the Minnesota Department of Education that addresses educationally appropriate, voluntary ways to integrate schools. Our Magnet/STEM programs contribute to this integration.
