Minnesota schools get more guidance on fall start amid COVID-19

State health officials' guidelines provide for three potential scenarios for the fall.



Glendale Elementary School teacher Karla Schutz waved to students who lined streets in their neighborhoods as staffers drove down the streets of Savage on the last day of school.

State health officials on Thursday provided more direction to Minnesota schools as they sort out how - and if - they can safely welcome students back this fall.

A formal decision on whether schools will open is likely still more than a month away; the Minnesota Department of Health intends to make that call by the last week of July.

But the state did provide an outline for three separate scenarios, spelling out how schools may need to rearrange classrooms, minimize the numbers of students in cafeterias and on school buses, and react quickly if students or teachers become ill with COVID-19.
