Students worked on arts and crafts at Highland Park Elementary School last week.

Just as parents scramble to find ways to adjust their lives during the school closures, St. Paul and Minneapolis educators have their own challenge: finding ways to teach nearly 70,000 students from a distance.

Thanks to the risks of the novel coronavirus, schools are being forced to create online and distance learning structures on the fly. In St. Paul, where children were told to stay home Monday and Tuesday, staff members met in buildings across the district to assess what they will need to keep 36,000 students on track despite the disruption of COVID-19.
