This school year has again been a year like no other. It’s taken some time for both students and staff to adjust back to school in this challenging environment. Everyone is tirelessly working to do their best.
For the health and wellbeing of all, Osseo Area Schools is adding some time to winter break in order for everyone to re-energize. Winter break has been extended to a full two weeks and now includes Dec. 20, 21 and 22 as non school days. School will resume on Monday, Jan. 3 as originally planned.
As a result of the calendar change, additional modifications were needed to meet state learning requirements. The professional development days on Monday, Jan. 31 and Monday, May 2 will now be online student instructional days. Attendance will be taken virtually and students will be expected to work on teacher-provided learning activities during these days. In addition, all high school seniors will now be required to attend school through Wednesday, June 8. The final day of school for pre-K through grade 11 will remain June 9.
Thank you for your flexibility with these calendar changes. Having some extra time to recover will help kick the new year off in a stronger fashion.
