Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response Plan

About the Response Plan

This plan for addressing any Coronavirus incident is intended to serve the best interests of students, employees and families. 

2020-21 School Year

Updated August 19, 2020

On August 6, 2020, the Minnetonka School Board was presented with seven scenarios for the start of the 2020-21 school year and voted unanimously to approve a hybrid learning option. The plan focuses, first and foremost, on providing a safe environment for all the students and staff who will be in our buildings. Families who are not comfortable with in-person learning will be able to choose an e-learning option. The goal is to make sure that every family is able to make the most appropriate choice for them.
