Good news!! - We have received many questions about how the outcome of the Enbridge tax lawsuit might affect our school district’s building project. The short answer is, it won’t. Last week the state of Minnesota tax bill passed, which includes a measure for Local Government Grants. These grants will pay off the tax refund owed to the Enbridge pipeline based on assessments from years 2012 to 2018. Each county affected will receive grant money to cover refunds owed by the county and other taxing districts within the county. This is great news for our school district, county, and other rural areas affected by the tax court ruling.

On behalf of the Marshall County Area Veterans Memorial Park Governing Board, we would like to share this press release for our families: The Marshall County Area Veterans Memorial Park Committee promised to keep the public updated on the dedication festivities with some details. On Tuesday June 22nd, 2021 the park will be celebrated with a military structured program. It is a great opportunity to witness firsthand an atmosphere of service that veterans carry for a lifetime. There will be music from talented folks paying tribute. A message for all of us from area folks with connections to our veterans. All things will be intertwined with the military presence and theme. It will be a great chance for families to experience in person how connected we all are to the men and women who serve and defend our country and it’s values. The ceremony will take place just west of the Marshall County courthouse. We will have a stage and sound system so we can share the evening events with all who attend. The street to the north of the memorial will be closed for the dedication and making space for all who attend. We invite all of you to visit the mural in the courthouse basement. Throughout the evening the park with the granite and bronze will highlight the humble thank you the memorial represents. Feel free to bring a chair to stay comfortable so you can relax and enjoy the entire evening. In the unlikely chance the weather is a problem we will let the public know and we have a fallback date if need be. On behalf of the Marshall County Area Veteran’s Memorial Park Committee, we look forward to seeing you all on the 22nd of June at 7pm. Please come share in what promises to be a very special evening. Please thank a veteran when given the chance.

MCC School Buildings - History: Our students and staff currently occupy three buildings in the Marshall County Central School District. None of them have received significant updates in the past 27 years. Here’s a breakdown of when each facility was constructed and when the most recent improvements were made. Viking Elementary School Constructed: 1956 | Last Addition: 1963 Although well maintained, Viking Elementary School has not had structural additions or improvements since John F. Kennedy was president. Many things have changed since the early 1960’s, including the way students learn. What other parts of your day-to-day life are from 1963? Probably not very many. We have an excellent staff that has been resourceful with what we have, but we are simply out of space. The experience students and their families have at Viking Elementary is very important. It is their first impression of our district and if they are satisfied, they will likely stay. If they are not, we risk losing them, which also means less funding from the state. With the massive Digi-Key expansion in Thief River Falls, we anticipate more students entering our school district over the next decade. These are the most pressing space needs at Viking Elementary. • The music room is undersized by about 1,000 square feet according to the Guide for Planning School Construction Projects in MN. It is also not ADA compliant. • The Guide for Planning School Construction Projects in MN suggests 12-13 square feet per child in cafeterias. Our existing cafeteria provides only 6 square feet per child. • Preschool and Head Start currently share one classroom, which forces us to alternate schedules. There is significant community demand to increase the number of days for both programs, but we don't have the space. • The staff lunchroom is only 130 square feet and accommodates only three people. We have 20 staff in the building. • Students and staff currently share bathrooms, which creates privacy issues and delays due to limited fixtures. • Our speech teacher and social worker share space on the old elementary stage. This room is adjacent to our music classroom and gym. One-on-one time with children is difficult due to noise level and activity. • Our nurse’s area is also located on the stage and is a long way from the main office. We share a nurse with another school district, which means half of our days we are without a nurse. We check on sick children when the nurse is gone, but it is not ideal. Most teachers keep sick children in their classroom on the floor until their parent arrives. Newfolden Elementary School Constructed: 1916 | Last Addition: 1994 Babe Ruth was only in his third season of playing Major League Baseball when the original school was built in Newfolden. Since then, the building received an addition completed in 1941, 1955, and had a portion torn down and replaced in 1994. Safety is a district priority and space is one of our biggest current challenges. Here are some reasons why safety is an issue at Newfolden Elementary School. • Students must cross County Road 28 multiple times each day traveling to the High School for music, library, and after school programs. • The fire marshal has condemned the second-floor classroom spaces above the gym due to accessibility rules. This is wasted square footage and poses potential hazards. • The gym, which was built in 1941, does not meet Minnesota Department of Education size recommendations. Safety concerns include minimal space between the court and walls, as well as between the court and stationary bleachers. The gym does not have locker-rooms. • The building lacks a safe area reserved for bus drop-off and parent pick-up/drop-off. The only available option is curbside pick-up/drop-off from County Road 28 or a city street. Marshall County Central High School Constructed: 1970 and rebuilt in 1992 | Last Addition: None The High School has not received any updates in nearly three decades since the rebuild after the fire. That’s about how long it’s been since the Twins won their last World Series, which was in 1991. The combination of space needs and enrollment growth leaves the district in a tough situation. Here are some of the most important space needs at the High School. • We do not have a kitchen or cafeteria, forcing our students to cross County Road 28 to eat breakfast and lunch at the Elementary School. • The high school lacks gym space for junior high practices and games, which means our students share the 1941 gym at Newfolden Elementary School. • We share the music room with elementary students, which limits us from expanding our music program and creates scheduling conflicts. • There is no dedicated parent pick-up/drop-off area resulting in sharing this space with buses. Parking lots have one entrance/exit causing congestion and safety concerns in the morning and afternoon. • The high school library needs upgrades because of its multipurpose nature. It was designed as a library but gets used for student meetings, study areas, public meetings, staff meetings, our Freeze Kids Program, and Community Education. • The weight room is undersized and does not meet current needs of students or demands of the community. • The current gymnasium's multipurpose nature does not provide the necessary space when we have special events like programs, concerts, graduation, Home for the Holidays, and local trade shows. When we have those events our gym classes are displaced, or students go into a classroom losing activity time. The proposed improvements in Viking and Newfolden will help build a solid foundation of educational excellence for the students in our district, now and into the future. Together, we can build MCC strong. Mail-in balloting begins June 25th and election day is August 10th. Please visit www.buildmccstrong.org to learn more about the referendum.

MCC Families, News from the CDC and Governor of Minnesota regarding lifting of the mask mandates came out tonight. We heard from the Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Education that masks must continue to be worn inside school buildings and on the school buses until the end of the school year. We have done so much to get through all of this and we are proud of all our students and staff. Hang in there, just 11 school days left. We are in the final stretch! #MCCStrong. If anything changes before now and the end of the year, we will send an alert indicating the changes.

In Viking, additional classrooms, restrooms, and a new cafeteria are being proposed at Viking Elementary School. We’re also planning to remodel some existing classroom space, restrooms, staff lounge, and stage area. This will bring our building up to State standards for recommended room sizes. Our speech teacher, social worker, and nurse will get the spaces they need to effectively support our students. Right now, all of these services are crammed into the old stage area, which is located next to the gym and is separated by a curtain. This environment is very distracting for our students. Preschool and Head Start will each get a room and will be offered as all-day programs. This will be a significant improvement and help meet community demand. Mail-in balloting begins June 25th and election day is August 10th. Please visit buildmccstrong.org to learn more about the referendum. The proposed improvements in Viking and Newfolden will help build a solid foundation of educational excellence for the students in our district, now and into the future.

Building a foundation and future of educational excellence, one student at a time — that’s the mission of Marshall County Central Schools. In order to achieve this mission, we need to make improvements to address our current needs and plan for the future of education in our district. That’s why we’re proposing a referendum to voters later this summer. The plan reflects input from our community via surveys, meetings, and multiple years of analysis. Safety is a district priority and space is one of our biggest current challenges. In a 2019 survey, parents indicated their top concern is student traffic across County Road 28. About 315 students cross this street multiple times during the day to access shared facilities between the high school and elementary school. Vehicles park along this road, which creates potentially dangerous situations where kids are popping out in between parked cars as they try to cross the street. There are days when some of our elementary students cross the road 3 or 4 times. Enrollment in our district has increased by about 60 students in the past seven years. During that time frame we converted the Newfolden Elementary music room and library into classrooms. At Viking Elementary, the library and a computer lab were also converted into classrooms. Projections indicate this growth trend will continue and we won't have space to accommodate all of our students. We’re proposing to demo the existing elementary school in Newfolden and build an addition onto the high school. The addition will include space for elementary classrooms, a kitchen and cafeteria, gym, locker rooms, a weight room with community access, science classroom, expanded commons area, and a secured entrance. We’re also proposing new locations for parent pick-up/drop-off, a dedicated bus lane, and additional areas for parking. We intend to build a new space for the Northwest Regional Inter-District Council on the existing elementary site as well as overflow parking for school events. Recreational amenities are also being considered. The proposed plan accounts for updates to current areas of the high school as well. These include improvements to the library, so it meets current and future needs, automated controls of our air handling units, air conditioning to improve our learning environments, a multi-purpose room, and updates to existing classrooms.

Stress related to COVID-19 is at an all-time high. The American Psychological Association’s Stress in America report found that nearly 8 in 10 adults say COVID-19 is a major factor in their stress levels. Resilience includes our ability to bounce back from adversity and come back stronger, and while that may not come effortlessly, it is achievable. Here are some tips to help you get started: 1. Accept change. We all got a good dose of change in 2020! Whether we were working from home, virtual learning, or staying indoors for days at a time, we had to adapt to something completely new. Managing your expectations and allowing for flexibility are great places to start, so if things don’t happen as planned, you can continue to adapt. 2. Keep things in perspective. This takes practice, but a great place to begin is thinking about and writing down what you’re grateful for. When you focus on the positives around you, the negatives don’t feel as overwhelming. How you organize your thoughts matters and realizing that some things are out of your control can free you from harmful thought patterns. It helps to think about the big picture. You can’t always change what happens, but you can control how you react to it. 3. Take care of yourself. We can’t emphasize self-care enough, as it really can help bring you to a more positive and hopeful mindset. Doing nice things for yourself or planning activities you enjoy can promote a better mood, and it’s a great excuse to do something enjoyable for yourself if you’ve been feeling down. Try going for a brisk walk, watching a funny movie, or crafting – anything that’s going to make you feel more like you. 4. Prioritize relationships. Connecting with other people and cultivating relationships are innately human activities; we are social by nature. Lean on your social network for support if you need it. You are not alone in feeling “2020 fatigue,” and investing time in your relationships will help foster a sense of solidarity. Your friends and family may need some support from you as well, so be sure to offer them help too. 5. Seek professional help. Last year was far from the norm, and if you’re finding it hard to adjust, know that help is available. A licensed mental health professional can help you find some strategies for staying afloat and moving forward. Community organizations and faith-based groups are also available for support. The important thing to remember is that you are not alone, and your well-being is the top priority.

Thank you to all our school bus drivers that help our students get to school and back home or activities and back home each school day! A bus driver's role goes far beyond just driving. In many cases they are the first school adult a child sees each day. Our drivers each have a tremendous heart towards the children and families they serve. Thank you MCC Bus Drivers!!

2-19-2021 MCC Families, Attached to this letter, you will find our March planning calendar. We will remain in our current Learning Model for a few more weeks. Due to the uptick in cases in our area, the first two weeks of March we will continue with Wednesday being a distance day for all students. We will serve takeout meals and have Tier I Emergency Childcare on Wednesday, March 3 and Wednesday, March 10. We are hoping to begin a return to 5 days a week in-person schooling starting March 15. Under this plan starting on the 15th: Head Start Students would go Monday - Wednesday. K-12 would go all five days each week. PreK would go to school Thursdays and Fridays. The remaining Wednesdays in March (17, 24, and 31) would be early dismissal days where students will be released from Viking at 12:25 p.m., Newfolden Elementary at 12:50 p.m., and the High School at 1:00 p.m. The early dismissal ensures we meet the teacher prep time requirements in the Governor’s executive order helping our teachers work with students home on quarantine or distance learning. The return of students 5 days a week in-person is subject to change depending on how our area of the county is doing in regards to the spread of COVID 19 and how much our school system is being affected by that. We have school conferences planned for March 8 and March 9 at all schools. March 8 Conferences will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and March 9 Conferences will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Conferences will be held via Zoom or Telephone. All elementary students will receive a scheduled conference time with their homeroom teacher. Parents of high school students may request a conference with teachers and teachers may request a conference with parents. Patty and Sarah will be mailing conference times home soon. If you are a parent of a high school student and wish to schedule a conference, please contact Missy in the high school office mbjorgaard@mccfreeze.org or (218) 874-7225. March 29 is a scheduled in-service day. We will have takeout meals available to those that reserve them and have Tier I Emergency Childcare that day. April 2, Good Friday, school is closed. No meals or childcare will be available on April 2. Please continue to follow safety protocols to protect your family and help us maintain schooling. Stay home when sick. Wash hands often. Maintain social distance from those not in your household. Wear masks indoors and when with people not from your household. Contact the school if you have any questions. I want to thank our families for being flexible and understanding with all the adjustments that we have made. The adjustments have allowed us to make the most of the situation and helped us provide education and extracurricular opportunities. Remember that we are here to support you and if you need any assistance, please call. Thank you and Take care! Jeffrey Lund, Superintendent

Dear Families and Staff, 2/15/2021 We were notified by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) that members of the MCC School community tested positive for COVID-19. It is possible these persons were able to spread the disease while in the community. The following dates and locations were involved: 2/4 and 2/5: MCC High School 2/11 and 2/12: Viking Elementary We cannot for privacy reasons share details about the people. At this time, all have been told to stay home and away from other people (in isolation) until they are well and can no longer spread the disease. We have worked with MDH to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19, and have told them directly to stay home and/or to work from home for 14 days, even if they have a negative COVID-19 test during that time. This is how long it can take to show signs of the disease. If you have not been contacted, your child is not considered a close contact, and there is nothing special you need to do. Because the spread of COVID-19 from unknown sources is widespread in Minnesota, you should continue to watch your child for COVID-19 symptoms, which include: Fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, New cough or a cough that gets worse, Difficulty/hard time breathing, New loss of taste or smell, Sore throat, Nasal congestion/stuffy or runny nose, Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, Muscle pain, Extreme fatigue/feeling very tired, Severe/very bad headache, or Chills. If your child gets symptoms, they should stay home and you should talk with their doctor or other health care provider to decide if they need to see a doctor and/or to get tested for COVID-19. We understand that this news may make people feel uneasy. We have taken action to clean and sanitize the building and are working closely with MDH to watch the situation. We are asking all members of our community to lower the chance of spreading illness by taking the following actions: Protect yourself and others by wearing a face covering, Wash your hands often with soap and water, Cover your coughs and sneezes; do not touch your face with unwashed hands, If you are sick, stay home from school, child care, sports, and other activities, Clean all commonly touched surfaces often, such as telephones, doorknobs, countertops, etc. If you have questions, contact Nurse Julie, jdahlman@mccfreeze.org.Thank you for helping to keep our school community safe.

We have had some questions from families regarding travelling. Here is some helpful information to consider regarding travelling. The CDC and MDH discourage any unnecessary travel. If you must travel outside of the state/area use safety precautions to protect yourself and family. Out of state travel is highly discouraged. Before you travel: Look at area and how much spreading of COVID is going on. A great reference is Global Epidemic Website: https://bit.ly/2LO4o7i that provides a 7 day rolling average by county. While traveling: - Wear a mask, stay six feet from other people, avoid crowds, and wash hands often. After travel: CDC and MDH are recommending you get tested prior to travel and 3 to 5 days after traveling. They also advise staying home for 7 days after travel if you test or 10 days if you do not test. For more detailed information go to CDC Travel website: https://bit.ly/377yDxk

Everything has been working well for our students involved in activities. So far we have started High School basketball, Freeze Hoops, Robotics, and Musical practice. We have also started elementary band class and held our annual spelling bee. Our safety protocols have been working well. For basketball, we have a process for sign ups so parents can attend games. Our opponent schools provide information ahead of time which makes things easier for everyone. For those that are not allowed to attend games, we are hosting games held at MCC and Tri-County on the NFHS Network. There is no cost to view games hosted at our home sites but you do need to create an account on their app or webpage to view home games. We will post information on where to watch games online as soon as our opponents share the information with us. Some are hosted on Facebook, Youtube, and the NFHS network. We will continue to monitor the health situation in the county and within our school. The last week of February we will post our March calendar. We are hoping to add school on Wednesdays starting in March so it is crucial for everyone to continue to follow all recommendations regarding safety. Stay home when sick, wash your hands frequently, maintain social distancing when out in the public, and wear masks indoors in public areas and with people not from your household. If you ever have any questions about whether it is okay to send your child to school, please call our school office and office staff or Nurse Julie can assist you.

Students in grades 9-12 will remain in two groups one more week with group 1 attending Tuesday, Jan. 19 and Wednesday, Jan. 20 and Group 2 attending Thursday Jan. 21 and Friday, Jan 22. Starting January 25, Grade 9-12 students will join the four day a week schedule attending all four days school is in session that week. There will be no school on January 27. The Head Start and Preschool calendar does not have any changes. Please have your Head Start/Preschool child come on their designated days.

Thank you for remaining understanding and flexible throughout this school year. We are excited that we can begin to transition the students back to school more consistently. Please continue to follow all recommendations regarding safety. Stay home when sick, wash your hands frequently, maintain social distancing when out in the public, and wear masks indoors in public areas and with people not from your household.

MCC Parents (1-05-2021) I want to share an information update with our families as the Minnesota Department of Education and Minnesota Department of Health have provided some updated guidance and requirements for schools. You may have seen news coverage during the holiday break regarding transitioning students back to school, rules regarding activities, and new safety rules. Transition Plan: Please continue to follow our January calendar we shared prior to break this week and next week. There has been significant improvement in the number of COVID cases in our area. We have seen reduced numbers of families and students that have had to quarantine. Things are moving in the right direction. We will spend this week and next week to monitor our data to see if there are any surges from the holidays. We are beginning some transition planning to get our 5-12 group in school more days like the younger students. We have a board meeting discussion planned during our organizational meeting on January 7 and will follow up with a leadership team meeting on January 13. After those meetings, we will send out an announcement via our alert system, website, and Facebook for any changes to the remainder of January. Health Rules: The state made some updates in its Safe Learning Plan. We found that many of the new rules required by the Department of Health and Department of Education, we already had in place. We want to notify and share information about adjustment to face covering rules. Face Coverings must be worn when engaging in indoor physical activity. For us this would include indoor recess and indoor physical education classes. All of our sports programs will require participants to wear masks. The state is following updated guidance by the Minnesota Department of Health and the American Academy of Pediatrics. We are required to follow state mandates. Your children have done well with wearing masks indoors and will help them make this adjustment. For athletics, our coaches and student athletes have noted that face masks made by Adidas/Reebok work the best for PE/Athletics. They are soft, breathable, and fit well. They come in a size small (for children 12 and under) and size M/L for children over 12 and adults. They come in 3 packs for $20 and can be found on their respective websites or on Amazon. If you have any health related concerns about new regulations we ask that you contact Nurse Julie. The state has not clarified exceptions at this time, but Nurse Julie can listen to your concerns and do her best to help. She attends statewide nurses meetings each week and gets helpful information that may help address your concern. Sincerely, Jeffrey Lund Superintendent/Elementary Principal

11-30-2020 Please review the following public notification 11/30/20 Dear Families, We were notified by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) that a member of the Marshall County Central community has tested positive for COVID-19. It is possible the person was able to spread the disease while in the community on 11/23/20. We cannot for privacy reasons share details about the person. At this time, they have been told to stay home and away from other people (in isolation) until they are well and can no longer spread the disease. We have worked with MDH to identify those who were in close contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19, and have told them directly to stay home and/or to work from home for 14 days, even if they have a negative COVID-19 test during that time. This is how long it can take to show signs of the disease. If you have not been contacted, your child is not considered a close contact, and nothing special is needed to be done. Because the spread of COVID-19 from unknown sources is widespread in Minnesota, you should continue to watch your child for COVID-19 symptoms, which include: Fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher New cough or a cough that gets worse Difficulty/hard time breathing New loss of taste or smell Sore throat New nasal congestion/stuffy or runny nose Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea Muscle pain Extreme fatigue/feeling very tired New severe/very bad headache Chills If your child gets symptoms, they should stay home and you should talk with their doctor or other health care provider to decide if they need to see a doctor and/or to get tested for COVID-19. Please review the following resources: Home Screening Tool for COVID-19 Symptoms (PDF) (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/homescreen.pdf) COVID-19 Attendance Guide for Parents and Families (PDF) (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/attendance.pdf) We understand that this news may make people feel uneasy. We have taken action to clean and sanitize the building and are working closely with MDH to watch the situation. We are asking all members of our community to lower the chance of spreading illness by taking the following actions: Protect yourself and others by wearing a face covering. Wash your hands often with soap and water. Cover your coughs and sneezes; do not touch your face with unwashed hands. If you are sick, stay home from school, child care, sports, and other activities. Clean all commonly touched surfaces often, such as telephones, doorknobs, countertops, etc. Resources that you may find helpful: MDH Coronavirus Disease 2019 (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/index.html) MDH Schools and Child Care: COVID-19 (https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/index.html) CDC Coronavirus (COVID-19) (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) If you have questions, contact Nurse Julie, jdahlman@mccfreeze.org.

11-23-2020 Please review the following public notification: We were notified by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) of a lab-confirmed case of COVID-19 in a member of the Marshall County Central community with the date of last exposure November 23. For privacy reasons, we cannot share details about the status of the person. At this time, they have been advised to stay home and away from other people (isolate). We have worked with MDH, and Public Health to identify and notify those who had close contact with the person who has COVID-19. The risk of exposure for other people present in the building on that date is no greater than the risk of contracting the virus in the general community. The risk of exposure for other people present in the buildings on those dates is no greater than the risk of contracting the virus in the general community. If you or your child were not notified that you had close contact with the person, you should still monitor for symptoms of illness, but do not need to stay home unless symptoms develop. If symptoms develop, stay home and consult with your health care provider to determine if medical evaluation is needed. We are working closely with MDH and North Valley Public Health to monitor the situation. If you have questions, contact School Nurse Julie Dahlman, jdahlman@mccfreeze.org or Superintendent Jeffrey Lund, jlund@mccfreeze.org. Thank you for helping to keep our school community safe.

As you all have heard our athletic/activities season has been put on pause for the next four weeks, starting Friday at 11:59 pm. We hope during these next four weeks the numbers stop increasing and begin to decline, and we can return to all our activities as soon as possible. As we move forward, we will continue to do what we can to provide our students with opportunities to be involved, to be together, and to be great. Greatness is defined b how you deal with adversity, and I have no doubt that our school, community, coaches, advisors, student athletes, fine arts participants and families will show how great they are as we move through this challenging period of pause. Take care of one another, stay positive, and keep working hard every day. We look forward to the return of our activities and fine arts and know that they will be better than ever soon.

11-19-2020 MCC Families, This letter contains important information regarding our school schedule between Thanksgiving Break and Christmas Break. Our plan is to continue operating school with the same hybrid schedule we ran in November through the Christmas Holiday break. Our school board met and discussed how our current system was working. We have had ongoing check-ins with public health and discussed the situation with our school leadership team as well. We are very proud of our staff and our families for following our safety procedures which is allowing us to still be able to continue school in this hybrid setting. We will be constantly monitoring how things are working and this is all contingent on us staying adequately staffed and families following protocols of staying home if sick or staying home if named close contacts. So far our systems have been working well. Please continue to follow safety measures outside of school in the community and in your homes so that we can continue having in person opportunities for our students. One important note: We need our parents help for when our hybrid students are home. Teachers are providing students work and taking valuable time to explain what needs to be complete; however, we had a low percentage of work completed and turned in this past week. As a result we have a lot of students on our deficiency list this week because they did not turn in their work. Please take time to check in on your child and make sure they are doing homework. Teachers are using e-mail and Google Classroom to remind your child. If you aren’t sure what needs to be done, check in with your child’s teacher especially on the Wednesdays when they are available to assist students and parents. Next Week’s school Calendar: Meal Sign Ups go to: https://forms.gle/rJsff6Jnp8Mh83hC9 Monday, November 23: Head Start, K-4 all students, and 5-12 Group 1 students Tuesday, November 24: Preschool, K-4 all students, and 5-12 Group 2 students Wednesday, November 25: All students at home in distance learning that day. Teachers will provide work for your child. Please be sure that they are completing their work at home and returning it to school on their next scheduled school day. November 30 - December 22: We will continue to follow our current hybrid schedule. Please see the attached calendar which identifies which days each student group attends school. #MCCSTRONG Superintendent Jeffrey Lund

11-11-2020 MCC Families, I wanted to take a moment to provide a general update to families. I know that many of you may be feeling anxious or have questions about how things are going at school or what we are thinking about. Each day, we are focused on doing whatever it takes to help the children in our community. This pandemic doesn’t make that task easy, but our MCC team remains committed to caring for and educating your child in the best way we can under these circumstances. We are still on track to remain in the hybrid setting through Thanksgiving break. Our school board has a regular meeting on November 17 and our leadership team meets on November 18. There will be discussions in both those meetings in regards to how things are working and what we are planning between Thanksgiving and Christmas Break. Ideally by Thanksgiving we are hopeful county numbers will level off and start going down. That is really up to all of us in school and out of school. We must get everyone in the community following the safety protocols of wearing masks, maintaining social distance, staying home when not feeling well, and washing hands often. School remains very safe in terms that we are not seeing spreading in schools. Our school families and staff have been doing very well not coming to school when sick and following expectations. We have had two cases requiring notifications and close contact quarantines. Everyone is doing what is needed and that has allowed us to continue with schooling in our hybrid setting. Athletics has been a hot topic. We are following guidance from MDE and MDH and will continue to hold activities while we remain in school under all in person or hybrid settings. There are many benefits to school activities for student physical and mental health. We have safety protocols to screen and maintain a safe environment. We have good communication with other schools. There may be times we have to cancel events or not allow fans out of precaution. However, we will maintain activities for our students as long as we remain in a setting where we have students at school. I am sure seeing some neighboring schools going distance has made you wonder if we are. Again, we remain committed to remaining in school in this hybrid setting for the time being. I have been proud of our families and our staff for remaining flexible, remaining understanding that everyone is doing their best. Everything we are doing and you are doing is important to help us get through this. There is a light at the end of this long tunnel. We remain committed to getting through all this together. #mccstrong If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns please feel free to call and let us know. Thank you, Jeffrey Lund Superintendent/Elementary Principal

Dear MCC Parents, We will switch our learning model in our school buildings starting November 2. We plan to run in this learning model through Thanksgiving but understand that this could change at any time. To help you understand the schedule please review notes in this letter. A calendar is included with this letter to help you see when your child would attend school. All of this information is also available on our website COVID 19 Information Page in a printable format: https://bit.ly/3jGTISB Headstart, Preschool, and K-4: In this model Kindergarten through Grade 4 will come four days in a traditional 5 day school week. In a typical week K-4 students would come to school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Wednesday will be a distance day with some skills based work completed at home. Please note Wednesday, November 11 our Head Start students and K-4 students will attend school for a full day. Head Start students will attend school in person on Mondays and Tuesdays. There will be no Head Start on November 9 (No School) or November 24 (due to shortened Thanksgiving week). Preschool students will attend school in person on Thursday and Friday. Please note Tuesday, November 24 preschool students will attend school because of the shortened Thanksgiving week. Our youngest children need additional support by being in person as much as possible as distance learning is most difficult for our youngest learners. We also want to prevent situations where our youngest learners may have to be home alone. We understand this is a bit different than our original hybrid model for this age group. This plan adjustment is able to maintain safety measures and balance education and community needs. Grades 5-6 and MCC High School: Grades 5-12 will be in our traditional Hybrid Learning Model where students are assigned to two groups identified as Group 1 and Group 2. Please follow the attached November Calendar to see days you would attend school. We also posted our Group 1 and Group 2 roster if you need to check your child’s group. Students assigned to Group 1 will attend school in-person Monday and Tuesday in a typical five day school week. Please note we will have students in group 1 come on Wednesday, November 11 for a full day because it is a four day week. Students would remain home completing homework on the remaining days of the school week. Teachers would assign/send distance learning materials home with Group 1 students on Tuesdays. Students assigned to Group 2 will attend school in-person Thursday and Friday. We will have Group 2 students attend on November 24 due to the shortened Thanksgiving week. Students would remain home completing homework on the remaining days of the school week. Teachers would assign/send distance learning materials home with Group 2 students on Fridays. Important Note: Teachers will give most of their attention to students in school during the school day but will take time to connect/message students that are at home. To begin with we will not have students Zoom/Google Meet into classrooms on days they are at home with exception of students taking CIS or Infinity classes. Students doing work at home should complete work independently as teachers described and can send teachers an e-mail during the day or call before/after school for assistance. We want to start by keeping it simple and build up as students and teachers get used to everything. Wednesday November 4, 18, and 25 for all students: All students will be home and can use these days to work on homework. Teachers and paraprofessionals will be in school. Teachers will be encouraged to send a message to students on these days to remain connected and remind students about assistance available. Teachers and paras will be available to help any families that need any assistance with school work. Some time will be dedicated to doing some additional planning and preparation. Custodians will use this day to do some additional cleaning throughout the building. Meals: Meals will be available for pickup for any families that need meals for children while we are on this schedule. We have posted a sign up sheet for signing up for meals on days your child is home. To sign up go to: http://www.newfolden.k12.mn.us/o/mccsd/page/covid-19-information--23, click on and complete the Meal Sign Up Form. Meal pick up times are from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Pick up locations will be Viking Elementary and Newfolden Elementary. If you have a special need related to meals, please contact Karin (218) 874-8805/kgarthus@mccfreeze.org or Candy (218) 523-4425/chalvorson@mccfreeze.org and they will do their best to help. Childcare on Wednesdays (Days with no students): We will have limited childcare available for Tier 1 Emergency Workers. This list includes: Health Care and Public Health, Law Enforcement, Public Safety, First Responders, Food Distribution, National Guard, Judicial Essential Services, Educators and School Staff. Please contact Michele Audette (218) 523-4425 or maudette@mccfreeze.org about child care options. Freeze Kids will operate after school as it normally functions for families in that program. Activities: Activities are currently off until November 6. We will evaluate this and make announcements regarding activities every two weeks. For sports, we cooperate with Tri-County Schools who are also in a hybrid setting. We will make athletic based decisions by working together with them. Duration: Because of the complexity of switching learning models, it is our initial intention to continue in this format through Thanksgiving. We will continue to examine county COVID 19 numbers, work with North Valley Public Health, and work with our regional support teams in making final decisions. Please know we could have to shift models to further restrictions any time if the situation does not improve. It is important to do your part at home. Stay home if sick, wear masks in public, social distance, and wash hands. Please do not encourage students to get together outside of school when students are at home distance learning. Hopefully this adjustment will see us back in school full time in person after Thanksgiving. Please contact any of our school offices if you need any further assistance or have questions about this adjustment in the learning model.

MCC Families, County numbers of COVID cases are rising much faster than we hoped in our area. In contact with Public Health this morning, the central area of the county has remained stable with few cases. However, community spread is wide and other areas of the county have seen some outbreaks. Our goal was to remain in person, but recent surge has shown that this can change at any given moment. Because of the very large change in numbers the past few days in our county and area counties, we will be doing some transitioning this week. School will remain in person Monday - Wednesday. Wednesday will remain an early release day. Parent Teacher Zoom Conferences in Viking are still on as scheduled. Homecoming Coronation will remain on Tuesday. A link to video will be shared on Facebook. Elementary students will still celebrate Halloween in their classroom. We will hold that on Wednesday instead. There will be no sports or activities after school this week. Volleyball Game vs. WAO on Monday, JH Football vs. Goodridge-Gryla, and Varsity Football vs. KCC are cancelled this week. Thursday and Friday will be planning days. There will be no school for students Thursday or Friday. We will have lunch available for pick up Thursday and Friday. A sign up sheet for meals is available here: https://forms.gle/6hVTKHyJpobN5DAm7. We will hold a leadership team meeting on Wednesday to make a determination of specific school learning model adjustments. We will make an announcement following the meeting to our families so they are prepared if there are any further changes to how we will have school starting November 2. We need all our community members to take health safety measures seriously to help slow spread so we can safely continue with students being able to remain in school. Please help us by following the important safety guidelines: Wear a mask in public especially inside Avoid large gatherings Wash your hands/sanitize often Social distance Avoid unnecessary travel Thank you for understanding. Our primary goal is to safely provide education services to our families. Right now the safety side of this balancing act needs the most attention.

MCC Parents, We've heard word a web site called "Omegle" is making some rounds. This site is designed to allow people to talk with strangers without having to log in or create an account. There are many potential dangers for people especially children. Our school Firewall and GoGuardian program blocks this web site in school and on our Chromebooks. We are sending this message to help our parents stay alert and to encourage them to monitor what their children are viewing online on personal devices.

MCC has a ballot question on this year's ballot asking voters to revoke and replace our two current operating levies. Today, we are sharing two slides with you about the ballot question. Financial Health of District: The district has been in sound financial health. Operating Referendum help us maintain things and make improvements without having to bond or spend down our fund balance. We currently maintain a fund balance of between 40-50% of our annual budget. This makes us healthy and sound. How does our current operating levy compare to other districts: We are in the middle in regards to area districts. Our community has been supportive of schools and our school board respects our taxpayers. We have been able to support our needs with current operating levy that is why we are asking to revoke and replace rather than ask for an increase.

MCC Families, In discussions with the school board last night and in checking with North Valley Public Health today, we will remain with in-person learning for our learning model. I know there may be some concern as COVID counts rise in the region and throughout the state. We monitor those numbers very closely and work with public health on identifying risks. So far, we have been able to maintain a safe learning environment for students and a safe workplace for staff. Our safety planning has done well to mitigate risk and we have not seen spreading within our school buildings. Even though numbers suggest we should consider a move to a hybrid learning environment, it is not the only factor in the decision. I am concerned about how disruptive moving learning models is to our families and under the current environment I am not convinced that changing learning models will add a degree of safety as we have been doing well to maintain the conditions within our school buildings. There is valuable learning going on in our classrooms and we know from the experience last spring, that diminishes when kids have to attend to their learning at home. There have been some COVID cases in nearby schools. We have excellent support from Nurse Julie, public health, and a regional support team that will help us through the procedures if we get a case in school. We do have some school community members that have been affected by isolation and quarantine. They are all doing the right thing in staying out of school until it is safe for them to return protecting everyone here. Know that we will support our students in this situation by temporarily moving them to a distance learning setting so they get access to some education while they are in isolation. Teachers have been directed to start practicing tools like Google Classroom and teaching techniques they would use in the event we do change learning models. This is a precautionary measure and will help us stay prepared. We did send home letters with what your child’s group assignment is if we move learning models. Please retain that information and keep that in mind should we have to change learning models down the road. It is always good to be prepared especially in this ever changing environment. I want to thank our families for their efforts helping children follow guidelines, in keeping children home if they feel sick, isolating if they have symptoms until they get test results, asking questions, and adjusting when we have needed to make adjustments. For now it remains best for us to continue in-person learning. In the event we were to ever change the learning model we would utilize our alert system to notify our families. Sincerely, Jeffrey Lund

We have great news to share regarding "free meals". At this time the USDA and Minnesota Department of Education have notified us that free meals for all students will remain available through the end of the 2020-2021 school year. This is great news helping each of our school children receive a free breakfast and lunch each school day. It also relieves families financially as the federal reimbursements pay for meals instead of the family. We do need families to fill out the applications for educational benefits (Free/Reduced Lunch). Even though meals are free there are several other programs that rely on this count and it is important we maintain our funding in these areas. We receive Federal Title I, Title II, Title IV and state compensatory dollars that help us maintain smaller class sizes, provide funding for paraprofessional services, mental health services, and more.

MCC has a ballot question on this year's ballot asking voters to revoke and replace our two current operating levies. Today, we are sharing two slides with you about the ballot question. Why do we need our operating referendum? Operating referendum funds help us improve the education experience of our students by helping keep class sizes small, provide additional opportunities, provide college and career/technical courses, provide technology, help with upkeep of buildings and maintenance of property and vehicles, continue our district goals, while helping preserve our fund balance. Recent capital Improvements: In recent years we have been able to maintain our bus fleet and make improvements to our buildings and classrooms. Operating Referendum dollars help!

MCC has a ballot question on this year's ballot asking voters to revoke and replace our two current operating levies. Today, we are sharing two slides with you about the ballot question. What are we asking and what would be the impact on my taxes if this passes are the two areas covered by these slides. Essentially we have two operating levies. One expires after the next tax period and one expires in 2024. We are asking the community voters to revoke both their authorities and replace them with a combined authority of the same amount. Why? This will simplify things by only carrying one levy reducing need to hold multiple elections. It will also help carry these needed dollars for 10 years. How will this impact my taxes compared to the current two levies? Even though ballot says you are voting to raise your taxes, this is a revoke and replace. Your annual tax impact will remain the same. This would extend the same tax levy amount for 10 more years.

October 13, 2020 Dear MCC Families, I am writing this letter to inform you about the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases in our county. We are keeping in very close contact with North Valley Public Health and we are bearing very close to the line where we may need to make adjustments at school to our learning plan. MDE/MDH shared counts on Thursday with the public and we were at 5.32. However that data is already two weeks old and the last two weeks have been concerning. Reporting by North Valley Public Health on 10-12-2020 showed that our current 14 day count is at 19.15. This is the highest number of cases in a two week period that our county has had up to this point. Right now we are trending the wrong way. The next two weeks are very important. We need everyone to do their part. Several area schools in nearby counties have been hit with increases that have affected busing, sports, activities, and their learning models. At this point we currently have no cases in our immediate school community but have had some cases of staff and students that have had to isolate as close contacts since school has started. If the county count does not improve, we will strongly consider switching learning models to a hybrid model starting with our high school. We do not want to do that as we know in person learning is best for our students. We need everyone to take on the responsibility of doing their part in this. You can help by: Staying home if you are sick Avoiding unnecessary travel Washing hands Wearing masks in public places Social distancing even when wearing a mask, even outside if you are in a crowd. All of the county schools: MCC, W-A-O, Grygla, and Stephen-Argyle are sending a notification to families reminding them that we are in this together and need our families and communities to do the right things to ensure we can maintain in-person schooling for our children. Thank you, Jeffrey Lund Superintendent/Elementary Principal

Volleyball Parents: Just a reminder that your daughter should have received a Google Form document from Mr. Taylor or Mr. Longerbone on Friday. If they did not please have them email one of us so we can get that out. For the game on Monday you will need to fill out the form. We want to clear a few things up if there are questions. 1) We are allowing two tickets per household or up to four for split families. This means if you have two girls in the program you still are only allowed 2 or up to 4 tickets max in a split household. This may change in the future. 2)There was a question that had the wrong answer option open, if you have already filled it out go back and make sure all answers are filled out correctly. 3) We also are asking that once your daughter is finished playing that you leave so parents of athletes competing at the next level can watch their athletes. 4) Make sure all forms are filled out by Monday at 3:00 If you have any questions please email Mr. Taylor or Mr. Longerbone

Dear Volleyball Parents: We are sure you have heard that there has been much discussion about the status of fans at volleyball games. Yesterday the MSHSL opened up the possibility of fans attending volleyball games. At this time we have come up with some regulations that we think will allow 2 spectators (4 for split families) to attend volleyball matches. Please follow these guidelines: 1. Only two fans will attend per participant. No exceptions. (Parents or parent & sibling of the same household only. No fill-ins. All siblings must be in 7th grade or above.) 2. Please enter through Door 1 at MCC and Door 14 at TC. Expect a temperature check upon arrival. If your temperature exceeds 100.4 degrees, you will be denied admittance. 3. Please exit to the west: Doors 8 and 9 at MCC and Door 11 at TC. 4. Masks must be worn properly, covering your mouth and nose at all times. 5. Families will sit in groups of 2 only and maintain 12 ft. of space from players/participants. Sit only on marked spots. 6. Family/groups will sit at least 6 ft. from other family/groups. 7. There WILL NOT be concessions. Possibly in the future. 8. Immediately after a game, you are expected to vacate the building. Do not go on the floor to greet your daughter. Do not loiter in the hallway. 9. If your daughter is on C-Team, you must leave after the C game is finished. Same for subsequent levels. 10. If your daughter plays on JV, Varsity, or 8th grade, please arrive near the starting time for your daughter's game and leave when it’s finished. 11. At this time, we will only accommodate fans for the home team and only the game your daughter is participating in. 12. Fill out the Google Form to register for Monday's volleyball game. Only those names on the form will be admitted. *A google form will be sent to your volleyball players email account please fill this out before 3:00 on Monday 10/12/20 Respectfully, Brian Longerbone and Gary Taylor Northern Freeze ADs

It is very important that we all do our part to help ensure we are able to maintain in-person school and slow spread. So far families and staff are doing great at staying home from school when not feeling well. Thank you as that protects everyone. If you are not sure, you are always welcome to contact the school and we will help you. We need our families to follow precautions on evenings and weekends outside of school time as well. The neighboring state of North Dakota has the highest per 100,000 active case count in the country. Minnesota in recent weeks has also seen an uptick in cases as well. Several schools have had to change learning models in recent weeks. Please stay home if you are sick, social distance, take precautions if you have to travel, avoid unnecessary travel, wash hands, wear masks when in public. Our children need school in person as it is the best way they can learn. Please continue your efforts to help with this!

Dear MCC Parents, The purpose of this letter is to notify you about an adjustment we need to make to better serve our students and families. Starting October 21, we will be having early release days on Wednesdays each week. Viking Elementary will dismiss at 12:25 p.m., Newfolden Elementary will dismiss at 12:50 p.m., and MCC High School will dismiss at 1:00 p.m. The reason for this adjustment is that we have seen more absences and many exclusions of students due to them or a family member having symptoms or being a close contact of COVID-19. Luckily in most cases, students were able to return to school earlier than the full exclusion period. In planning, we were hopeful we could handle meeting these extra needs but we need to make this adjustment to accommodate everyone better. The early releases will help our teachers and school staff by providing additional planning time, preparation time, communication time, and time to make adjustments. Paraprofessional staff will work their normal hours to assist teachers with these extra efforts. Freeze Kids will be available to families that are using the service at no additional charge. We know this may be of inconvenience to some families so we wanted to give plenty of notice. We tried to come up with a way that supported our needs without creating too much difficulty for families. Wednesdays were chosen because this is the day that will be dedicated to assisting with distance learning if we are in a hybrid model. It works best for our Head Start/Preschool Schedule. There are no junior high sports on Wednesdays. Before October 21, please take time to assess your needs to make this work for your family. Call the school office or transportation office if you need to make any transportation adjustments. Thank you for understanding that we have to make adjustments from time to time. Our key goal is to be able to safely provide in-person education as this is the best way our students learn. This adjustment will help our teaching staff and support staff serve our families better under the circumstances. Sincerely, Jeffrey Lund Superintendent

Today the MSHSL Board approved the start of Volleyball and Football for the fall. The official start of the season will begin September 28. This will allow 11 weeks of Volleyball and up to 6 games of football. They are allowing the training week that was organized to continue this week. During the training window our coaches will emphasize safety measures and continue getting our students acclimated to the regular season with conditioning and basic skills. We are waiting for official expectations from MSHSL but know the following: Season starts September 28. There will be a practice period before games can begin. Volleyball will consist of no more than 2 contests per week. 14 games during season maximum. No fans will be allowed in attendance per MDH guidelines. Only essential personnel will be allowed. No tournaments will be allowed. Season starts September 28. There will be a practice period before games can begin. Football will consist of up to 6 games. There may be room at the end of season for a two week section/regional playoff window. Fans will be allowed for football but numbers will be restricted. We do not know how this affects the spring sport training window or the start dates for winter/spring seasons. MSHSL will have action on this during its October 1 board meeting. We are busy now getting prepared now that we know our students can play!

Brief update on Fall Sports: The MSHSL is meeting on Monday to discuss allowing Football and Volleyball to move back to fall for a shortened season. They gave schools the opportunity to complete a survey yesterday. We participated in the survey after consulting with board members, Tri-County Schools, Kids, and Coaches. We also heard from several parents and community members. We responded that Fall is the right time for these activities and that we were able to maintain safe practices during summer and will continue that now. Sports are a positive thing for our students providing something to look forward to, helping some even do better in school. They promote leadership which we really need in times like this. We also asked the MSHSL to provide schools with key information and expectation as part of their decision. There is a lot of context we do not know yet but we will definitely cooperate with the MSHSL decision and move forward if they allow. Please know health and safety is a priority and so is maintaining school. If we have to shift settings, sports like other things may require a pause and we need everyone to be patient. It's a balancing act for sure. Please know we did not get a "vote" in this but we did share our voice! The MSHSL will make their decision Monday.

MCC Families, We want to remind families to keep safety a priority as we approach the weekends. This weekend is Newfest and later in the month Middle River hosts Goosefest. While it is important to support our local communities, we must remember to do it safely. Maintaining six feet distance, wearing masks in crowds, hand washing, and staying home if you do not feel well are ways we can protect ourselves and keep others safe. Recently northwest Minnesota including Marshall County have seen a rise in positive cases. In order to ensure we maintain in person school, we need everyone in the community to do their part.

Important Note: This program is great, but we still need families to complete our Free-Reduced lunch forms. Once the program ends, we'll be back to the regular system. We receive between $130,000 - $150,000 in additional school compensatory aid that is based on our free-reduced lunch count. These funds help keep our class sizes small and supports paraprofessional salaries for Title I and other student assistance programs.

MCC Families: As we are gearing up for school, we highly suggest taking time this weekend to be sure to help your children practice wearing masks to help them prepare for the first week of school. Wearing masks for longer periods of time can take some adjusting and we want to make sure your child is comfortable. Please review our Tips for Mask Wearing found on our Back to School Web Page: https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/873585/Mask_Tips_for_Kids.pdf

Dear MCC Families, I want to thank all of you for your responsiveness as we have been calling this past week to confirm everyone is returning to school. Your helpful responses have allowed us to update bus schedules, student schedules, and get everything ready for the return to school. Really good news, Marshall County’s numbers on the 14 day rolling average release are down to 1.06. This keeps us on track for having all students in school to start the year! Keep up the good work wearing masks when using indoor public spaces, washing hands, avoiding large crowds, and staying home when sick. This all helps avoid community spread in our area and helps ensure we can continue in person schooling. The Back to School Page on our school website has been updated. There were some updates to the Parent Guide. We also added a Frequently asked questions page and some Tips to help your child in wearing their mask. Patty, Sarah, and Missy are putting together mailings and are targeting them to go out by Tuesday next week. Mailings will include your elementary child’s teacher placement, families group assignment if we ever move to a hybrid setting, and important back to school information. Please contact us if you do not receive your mailing by August 28. High School Families, please mark your calendars for September 1 and September 2. We will be having technology pick up nights those evenings. September 1 is pick up night for families identified as Group 1. September 2 is pick up night for families identified as Group 2. You will bring in your Chromebook Forms and pay the insurance fee so your child can pick up their Chromebook. There will be a designated time these evenings for a brief 7th grade orientation. Pre-K/Kindergarten families: We will be organizing an appointment based meet the teacher opportunity for you. You will be encouraged to contact the school to set up an appointment allowing you the opportunity to see the classroom and meet your child’s teacher before we start school. For other elementary families, you will have the opportunity for a phone/Zoom conference with your child’s teacher if you wish to talk with them before school starts. Reminder: The deadline for selecting the distance learning option for your child is August 27. As you are getting ready for school, if you have any questions please call and we will be happy to help answer them. Personnel are in all school offices Monday - Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. until school starts when we follow our traditional school schedule. Thank you for all your patience, support, and understanding! #mccstrong Jeffrey Lund, Superintendent

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!! #mccstrong Superintendent Jeffrey Lund

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

MCC Families, I am sure all of our families are anxiously awaiting news about school this upcoming Fall. We are as well. As we wait, we have been studying recommendations and guidance and working hard on all three scenarios described by state to help plan for the upcoming year. School will definitely look different this fall than "normal". If school is in person, we will have to maximize our spaces by spreading children out, we may have to change some rules regarding transportation. There may be times students have to wear masks for everyone's safety. We encourage you to start thinking about how you can help with all of this. We will need your help. This school year we will truly continue the mantra we used last spring, "We are in this together." Definitely take time in the next couple of weeks to do some planning in your households. The state will share with us which of the three plans districts across the state can start with the week of July 27. One plan has everyone return. One plan has a hybrid schedule (some kids come and some kids distance learn with a rotation). One plan is distance learning. Depending on the plan established we will need to gather information from families. Some planning questions to think about while we wait: If we return to school, does your child have any health conditions that would require them to distance learn? If we are back in school, are you able to transport your own child(ren) to school and pick them up? If we are on a hybrid schedule, can your workplace or your family accommodate a schedule in which some days are in school and some days students are distancing learning? If we are distancing learning, what improvements can we make to have the experience better than last spring? If we have a hybrid rotation, will I have someone to watch my child or help my child on days they are not at school? We also encourage you take time in the coming weeks to have your child wear a mask around the house and in public spaces so they get used to wearing a mask. We are not sure what final requirements will come forward, but the more everyone gets used to this practice, the easier it will be for your child to adjust. Please know we are working very hard purchasing personal protection items, cleaning supplies, adjusting procedures, adding signage, increasing safety measures, developing plans, ordering curriculum and school supplies, and examining our systems so we are ready. After the announcement from the state we will take time to share our plans. We will post them on the school website and share them with you. We will also start contacting you to ask some questions in regards to school, share transportation requirements, and how you can help us make everything work. Thank you for your patience as we all wait for news from the state. If you have questions feel free to call the district office. We are open Monday-Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sincerely, Jeffrey Lund Superintendent/Elementary Principal

4/27/2020 Announcement Parents and Students: I am sure many of you heard the news that school will not be returning in its normal fashion this year. Under new directives from the state, we will continue our distance learning the remainder of the school year. It saddens me that we will not see our students in our buildings and in our activities this spring. Please know we will do our best to keep our students learning under the circumstances. Hopefully all our efforts staying at home will protect society enough that we can return to a normal beginning of the school year next fall. Learning Packets Reminders: Packet 2 work is due this Thursday, April 30. Please finish up your work and drop it in the mail or in our drop container in the high school lobby. The high school lobby is open from 7:45 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. each day. Packet 3 will be distributed during meal pick up on Thursday, April 30 and Friday, May 1. Any packets not picked up at meal sites those days will be mailed out to families on May 1 and should arrive by May 5. Seniors: All your work is due in school on May 13. We have set aside May 13 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. for seniors to return Chromebooks, text books, school work, and allow you to pick up any personal items left in your locker. Please bring your items to school and we will have tables set up in the commons area for collection. Meals/Child Care: Our meals program for families and our child care option for emergency/Tier II workers is open throughout the remainder of the school year. If you have questions about either program or need to sign up for these services, please call (218) 874-8530. Free-Reduced Meals: We will put a free/reduced lunch application in every packet. If your income has changed due to COVID 19 or the Stay at Home Order, please complete the form. Qualifying now will get you free meals at the beginning of school through October 1. Our Students: Please know our school and our community are keeping our school children in their hearts and minds. School is so much more than just the school work. Times like these remind us that seeing friends, receiving additional services, participating in activities, and the other experiences mean a lot. Not having access to some of those things can be difficult, possibly raising anxiety and frustration in our children. I hope what comes out of all of this is that when we “return to normal” we emphasize the truly valuable items we need as a society. I hope people slow down a bit, not take as much for granted, allow more time for the important things, not be so demanding, cherish the moments of human connection snf share the spirit of helping one another, We know this experience is different and hard on many of you. Please know our staff at MCC are here for you, supporting you, missing you, and will be here through the end of the school year.

Mailings will go out at the end of the week providing school work for your children. They will include a parent letter which you can also find by going to the following link: https://bit.ly/2Uk21u8. When you receive your packets next week, instructions will help you know how to communicate with your child’s teacher if you have questions or need any assistance with school work. Our full distance learning plan is available here: https://bit.ly/3boe53o. Please understand this is a work in progress and we will refine things along the way. Meals: We will continue to provide meals throughout this shelter and place measure. You are allowed to come to pick up sites to receive meals. Please call (218) 874-7225 if you would like to reserve meals for your children. Here is a list of locations and times: Newfolden Elementary (10:45 p.m. to 12:30 p.m.) Viking Elementary Bus Garage (11:00 a.m. to 11:40 a.m.) Holt Nazareth Church (11:00 a.m. to 11:40 a.m.) Middle River Legacy Center (12:00 p.m. to 12:40 p.m.) Childcare: We will continue to provide childcare to emergency workers, health care workers, and essential personnel during this distance learning period.

3-23-2020 Meals: We have 184 sign ups for daily meals. We served 362 meals today out of Newfolden Elementary. (Families picked up meals for 181 children receiving lunch today and breakfast for tomorrow). Families were very good about following social distancing while they waited. We could use some grocery bags to bag meals. We have some bags ordered, but they won’t arrive for a couple of days. We ask that families picking up meals could bring in some extra plastic grocery bags that would be helpful. Meals this week will continue being served from Newfolden Elementary. Next week’s Meals (March 30-April 3) If school remains closed, we will expand meals for next week. We will continue serving meals from Newfolden Elementary and we will also serve at the following locations: Holt - Nazareth Church (11:00 to 11:40 a.m.); Viking Elementary (11:00 to 11:40 a.m.); and Middle River Legacy Center (12:00 to 12:40 p.m.). When you call to sign up for next week's meals, office staff will ask you for your desired meal pick up location. Virtual Spirit Week: We will hold a Virtual Spirit Week each week. This is our way of helping our families stay connected, help children see their friends, and to have some fun while everyone is staying home. Monday: National Puppy Day (Post picture of your pet or stuffed animal) Tuesday: Crazy Sock Day Wednesday: Super Hero Day Thursday: Art Day Friday Flannel Day Please follow these posts and have fun participating. School Work Mailings, general information: Paraprofessionals and office staff are finalizing preparation of mailing the learning packets that will go out next week once we hear from the Department of Education and the Governor in regards to moving to distance learning for a period of time. Each child in your home will receive a learning packet in the mail. Inside each packet will be instructions from your teacher(s) on how they plan to keep in contact with you, instructions on how to return the work when it is completed, and other general information. We are sensitive that not all families have access to the internet or have technology at home. We were mindful of this in the development of our work packets. The first round of work is designed to allow students to do independent work. This is to help students start successfully and allow time for families and the teachers to work out any communication issues that may come up. Proper Health Practices: Please follow all advice in regards to personal health and safety. Stay home if you are sick. Thoroughly and frequently wash hands using soap and water, cover sneezes and coughs, clean frequently touched surfaces, practice social distancing (3-6 feet separation) and stay away from large gatherings of people. We encourage you to keep your children at home. We continue to be in this together as a school and a community. Thank you in advance for flexibility and understanding. Stay healthy and well!
