If your family participated in the free or reduced school lunch program during the school year, there is a new program that can help provide your family with a food benefit over the summer. Please take a moment to look at and apply for P-EBT: www.mn.p-ebt.org.

This program is designed to help families with food costs during the COVID 19 pandemic. Families with SNAP or MFIP benefits will automatically receive benefits with the new program. Families utilizing school based Free or Reduced Lunch programs, can also apply.

MCC Families,

Good morning. This message is to provide an update to families about our back to school planning.

The county released new data yesterday and our county case numbers went down which is great. MDH is releasing data weekly now instead of every two weeks. There is a lag in this data but we are watching numbers closely. If things remain where they are at there is a good chance we will have school with all students in school when we return.

On August 10, the school board has a special meeting planned to review and discuss back to school planning. Based on our procedural set up, our safety planning, survey results, and MDH Health data, it looks like we would start school with one of these two possible scenarios: Either all students come to school in-person (Scenario 1) or all elementary students come to school in-person and and High School in a Hybrid mode. We ask that families keep that in mind as you are getting ready.

Please note the school board may make the final decision for our schools starting model during its regular meeting on August 17. I know everyone is anxious to know where things will start, but taking the extra time will let us see MDH data released on August 13. This will help the board make a more informed decision.

Right now things look good. We ask that our families and the MCC community to continue to do your part wearing masks, washing hands, maintaining social distance, and staying home when you do not feel well.

We are in the process of changing our COVID 19 page on our website to a Back to School page. We will post a parent guide for our back to school planning, school supply lists, Chromebook Handbook and other items on this page. That is coming soon but you should start seeing some information posted on it by Monday. We will use our notification system and Facebook page to post updates.

We will not host open house back to school nights this year. We are targeting a mailing home for August 20-21 to provide detailed back to school information. There will be some process for orientation and will be Chromebook Distribution for grades 7-12 prior to school starting.

Thank you for completing the survey. We did have 80% of our families complete it. Your responses have been very helpful in our back to school planning. We were especially thankful for the amount of families that noted they can help with transportation. Very soon secretaries and transportation director Adam Lokstad will be checking in with families to confirm transportation details.

Thank you for your patience. We will be sending out more frequent updates to keep you informed. If you have questions feel free to call our district office (218) 874-8530. You may also e-mail Mr. Nelson at mnelson@mccfreeze.org, Mr. LB at blongerbone@mccfreeze.org, or me at jlund@mccfreeze.org.

We are in this together!!

MCC Families,

I want to thank all our MCC families for your patience waiting for the Governor’s announcement regarding the start of school. We are committed to continuing our hard work to ensure our plans will work within state guidelines to provide a safe learning environment for our students and a safe workplace for our staff.

The governor’s plan is fluid allowing for local control with guidance. This will require a whole community commitment. Our ability to best serve our students is dependent on everyone. The more we can keep cases down in our county, the more likely we are able to have learning take place in person in our schools. I know not everyone agrees in all the mandates and rules, but our survey data shows nearly everyone wants to have our students back to school. Please follow recommendations of staying home if you are sick, wearing a mask in public settings indoors, washing your hands, and maintaining social distance. Following these recommended practices will help our school open with students in school and help us remain in school throughout the year.

We appreciate our families participation in our planning survey. We have received 212 responses which represents about 75-80% of our families. Key results so far:
-94.3% have indicated they will be sending children to school under scenario 1 or 2.
- 138 families have indicated they can help with transportation to school and 121 have indicated they can help with transportation home from school.
- 93.4% have indicated they have internet at home available for child(ren) to use for school work.
- 93.4% indicated they can supply masks for children to attend school. (We have secured a supply for any staff or student that needs a mask)
- 98.1% are accepting responsibility for staying home if sick. (We will have temperature and health screenings upon entrance to school each day for extra assurance).
- 75% indicated a preference of in-person learning; 25% preferred distance learning.
- Over 100 comments have been provided to help consider improvements during our planning

There is still time to complete the survey if you haven’t completed it.
To complete survey: https://forms.gle/TzURumpxuhiWq5wg9

Our department managers and administration will work diligently this week updating school policy and preparing guidance specific to our start of the school year. We will meet with our teachers to make some final adjustments. The school board has a special meeting scheduled for August 10 at 7:00 p.m. to review and approve our back to school planning. Zoom access to the board meeting will be available to the public. To close, our goal is to provide the best education possible to all our students. Based on the state’s planning recommendations and our preparations in person learning with planned safeguards is realistic. Please remember your role in following safety protocols as it will take an all around community effort!

Thank you,
Jeffrey Lund, Superintendent
