Minneapolis schools dial back reopening plans
November 10, 2020
Citing a significant rise in COVID-19 cases across the city, Minneapolis Public Schools has decided to suspend after-school tutoring and other in-person services now being provided to about 250 students at six schools.
The move announced Monday also puts on hold until further notice any additional efforts to bring more children back to school, Superintendent Ed Graff said.
"This is really a difficult time in our community and certainly a difficult time to be a parent or student or educator in Minneapolis," he said. His district, as well as St. Paul's, has been in distance learning mode since the start of the pandemic, although St. Paul has brought back some special-education students on a part-time basis.
