Coronavirus Response Plan

Deer River Schools ISD #317

Please note this situation is continuously unfolding and information will continue to change.

Sunday, March 15

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz issued an executive order on Sunday, March 15, that ordered all Minnesota schools to temporarily close beginning on Wednesday, March 18 and continue through Friday, March 27.

The current closure is in place to allow time for schools to create a Distance Learning Plan. There will be no instruction given between March 18 and March 27. Teachers, administrators, and all school staff are using this time to develop a learning plan to prepare for the possibility of a longer school closure.

At this time, instruction will resume on Monday, March 30. We do not know if this will be in the form on distance learning or not. The situation is continuously changing and updating.

We will continue to communicate updates to all families as we learn more. The safety of our students, families, staff and communities, are our top priority. We want to support you and keep you informed.
