  • On January 4, the school board, which includes newly sworn in members Mohamed Ibrahim and Jeff Smith, approved a recommendation from the Shakopee Public Schools Pandemic Response Advisory Team for adjustments to the elementary (K-5) IHD learning plan.

    Our Kindergarten through 2nd grade students in elementary IHD will shift to in-person learning on Monday, January 25th. This means all students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade will be on site for all 5 days per week starting on the 25th. 

    Our 3rd through 5th grades students in elementary IHD will shift to in-person learning on Monday, February 8th. This means all students in 3rd through 5th grade will attend school on site for all five days per week starting on February 8th. 

    Additionally, there will be no school for elementary IHD students in Kindergarten through 5th grade on Thursday, January 21 and Friday, January 22nd.

    School start times will be adjusted to those originally planned for the school year. Jackson and Sun Path Elementary schools will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:10 p.m. Eagle Creek, Red Oak and Sweeney Elementary will run from 9:05 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. 

    The majority of students will ride the same bus route with unchanged stops. But If your student’s transportation is significantly changed, those changes will be communicated the week of January 18th. 

    Secondary schools learning plans will remain unchanged at this point. Secondary schools include East, West, Shakopee High School and Tokata. At this point these schools will be in distance learning and expected to continue this way through at least January 15th and most likely through at least through the 31st of January. 

    All of this information with much more details will be sent to your email and can be found here.

  • Letter from the Superintendent

    The week of December 14, 2020, Governor Walz and the Minnesota Department of Education announced changes to the Safe Learning Plan that provides the rules for how Minnesota public schools must operate in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    With the exception of some increased health and safety protocols, Minnesota’s Safe Learning Plan did not contain much in the way of changes for our secondary schools (East, West, High School, and Tokata). The secondary schools will continue to apply the same rules as previously for determining learning models in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In accordance with the rules of the Safe Learning Plan, our secondary schools will be in distance learning at least through January 15, and most likely through at least January 31. As we have been, we will continue to monitor the situation and the Pandemic Response Advisory Team will evaluate the situation at their weekly meeting.
