Distance Learning Extended through 1/21/22

January 10, 2022 through January 21, 2022

As you know, the health and safety of staff and students is our number one priority. PSA's leadership team wants to thank all those that have made extra effort to minimize gatherings over the holiday break, gotten vaccinated and have diligently tested to ensure their own safety as well as those around them. We also want to thank everyone for their patience as we maneuver through the challenges of covid.

Despite the efforts of our staff and the proactive measures taken to communicate the importance of testing and encouraging vaccines as well as holding vaccine clinics to provide accessibility to our staff and students, this past week has shown that covid has greatly impacted our school community. PSA's school leadership team has met and collectively decided to move to Distance Learning this coming week January, 10th through January 21st. This is in part due to the increase in positive cases amongst our students, but also in our staff and a lack of coverage for those staff members.

Please note that there will be no classes on Monday, 1/17/22 due to Martin Luther King Day. PSA school building will be open on Tuesday, 1/18/2022 from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm for students who may need to pick up additional supplies or equipment they may need for the week. All students will be learning from home and follow a DISTANCE LEARNING schedule. Distance learning will be accessed through either Google Classroom or See Saw.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call our main office at (763) 450-1388.

Welcome Back: Happy New Year (Nyob Zoo Xyoo Tshiab)

Welcome back! We look forward to a new year and wish the best to our staff, students and families. Most importantly we wish good health to all amidst this covid pandemic. In efforts to keep our school community safe we would like to remind everyone to get tested and report positive cases to the school's main office.

Recently, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced a new recommendation that reduces quarantine time for individuals who test positive for COVID-19 who are not showing symptoms from ten to five days. Prairie Seeds Academy's Incident Command team is working closely with health officials to review the new change. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has not yet authorized this CDC recommendation and we will continue with our requirement of 10-14 day quarantine for all positive cases until we receive notification of the official change from MDH.

Please keep your students at home if they are feeling unwell or have been exposed to anyone who tested positive for covid. Parents may also keep their children at home to monitor them for symptoms due to participation in large gatherings over the break. Remember that we are in it together and need to take care of each other.
