International Travel

The following are the Minnesota Department of Health guidelines regarding international travel:

International Travel

For international travel, follow federal guidelines. Visit U.S. Department of State: Travel and CDC: COVID-19 Travel Recommendations by Destination for more information. If you are a non-U.S. resident looking to travel to Minnesota, contact your country’s embassy in the United States for additional guidance.

Hawley Public Schools will be following the CDC travel recommendations for each individual country traveled. Typically we've been seeing the guidance as quarantine for 7 days after arriving home with a negative PCR test after 3-5 days of returning. For example, if you arrived home from your trip on Friday, you would quarantine through the following Friday. With a PCR test either Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.

Dear Nugget Students, Parents, Staff and Community,

Hawley Public Schools is proud to present the “Nugget Flexible Learning Plan’ for the 2020-2021 school year. Utilizing data from our parent survey, Minnesota Department of Education, Minnesota Department of Health, CDC and many other professional organizations our Transition Team worked tirelessly to develop a plan to meet the needs of all of our students. We feel this plan meets the needs of our students no matter what learning scenario we are in given the requirements that we must follow. How you frame conversations with your child(ren) regarding the three different learning scenarios, the wearing of masks and other tensions associated with COVID-19 will make a huge impact on how your child(ren) will deal with these uncertain times. We encourage parents to have positive educational conversations with your child(ren). The task of dealing with Covid-19 is definitely a community endeavor and we ask each of you to do your part so we can provide structure and stability for our students and staff.

At 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 18 the Administrative Team will be hosting a virtual presentation of our plan along with an opportunity for you to ask questions. The link for this meeting is: https://meet.google.com/pyy-bcvr-fos

Please note that we are asking parents to notify the office by August 24 if you are choosing to have your child participate in the Distance Learning option for the first grading period of the upcoming school year.

The School Board will have its regular August meeting on Monday, August 24 and I expect the board will make a decision at that meeting as to which of the three scenarios we will be starting the school year in.

If you have any questions regarding any of the three learning models please do not hesitate to contact either High School Principal Anderson, Elementary Principal Ellingson or me. Thank you for all of your valuable input, patience, and support as we navigate the upcoming school year!
