This site contains relevant information for families in relation to COVID-19 and Distance Learning.

Recent Information from Hawley School District: (last updated 3/25/20)

Good afternoon-

We just received word from Governor Walz that public schools will be moving to distance learning starting on Monday, March 30 through at least April 30.

Attached is some useful information on how distance learning will look in the high school. This information will be emailed to students as well. The staff has been diligently working to make this a valuable learning experience for our students. Please know that there will be some bumps along the way but that we will continually be looking to improve our methods.

We have also created a COVID-19 / Distance Learning Website that is full of current information for both students and families. One of the most useful tools for parents is the Distance Learning Assignment Log that can be found on the High School Distance Learning page. This shared document will list the daily assignments for each class to help parents stay up-to-date on assignments as there should be daily educationally-related conversations. Please refer to the website for announcements as I am trying not to flood your inbox with emails that may not pertain to your family.

There may be materials that some students will need from the school for class. If there are materials that need to be picked up, an email will be sent with instructions on how we will be doing this. Friday will be the pick up day.

For those indicated a need for additional devices at home, you will receive an email with this information. If you did not indicate that your household needed a device, but realize that a chromebook is needed, please email Brett Schmidt (bschmidt@hawley.k12.mn.us) and Kelly Anderson (kanderson@hawley.k12.mn.us); the same goes for the internet. We want to make sure that every student has the tools needed for success.

As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me as I am happy to help.

We miss the kids greatly as they are why we love coming to work.

Thank you,

Kelly Anderson, HHS Principal

Distance Learning

Although Hawley Public School facilities are temporarily closed, "school" will continue on March 30th as we engage students with experiences that continue the planned learning program and help them to stay connected with teachers and classmates. These learning experiences offer authentic opportunities to focus on key concepts, knowledge, and skills. They emphasize interaction and creativity, and involve a balance of on-screen and off-screen tasks that help connect to previous learning and the current curriculum. See our Distance Learning Information Page for further information.
