School Communicators:

Thank you for all that you and your school communities are doing to continue showing up for our students and being that supportive presence in their lives. Now, more than ever, our students need trusting adults in their lives they can lean on. Thank you for answering that call to serve.

Over the weekend, Commissioner Ricker shared a list of helpful resources for educators, support staff and families as we all continue to support our students and each other. You will find that list of resources at the bottom of this email.

Also, please remember that this week is Family Engagement Week. Find information about that below and please share with your school communities.


This week is Family Engagement Week

The Minnesota Department of Education will be hosting a Family Engagement Week from June 1-5, 2020. Throughout the week, education experts will be hosting series of online events and promoting resources to help support families over the summer months during these unprecedented times.
