In recognition of this important declaration, we encourage District 196 families to explore the rich history of indigenous people around the United States and in Minnesota.
Our neighborhood school brings a sense of community and connectedness into each of our classrooms.
Each school will share site-specific details about the change at their building. There will be no school for all preschool and elementary students only Nov. 19 and 20.
Applications must be submitted by Jan. 6, 2021, for elementary magnet schools and by Feb. 10, 2021 for Valley Middle School of STEM. Applications for the School of Environmental Studies are accepted throughout the year.
The district has a process and timeline for determining when to shift to a different learning model based on multiple data points and factors.
Our East Lake third grade students are very excited to share what it means to be an East Lake "Laker"! Enjoy this video!
Both calendars are based on an all in-person learning model, although the district does plan to continue to offer the 196 Digital Academy as an all distance learning option for families.
Register now for fall learning opportunities. As always, the safety of you, your family and our staff is our primary concern.
District 196 students are eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch every school day, whether in school or distance learning at home. A la carte items available at school are not included in this program.
PayPAMS is the platform families will use to pay for meals. Meal account balances from the 2019-20 school year have automatically been transferred over.
