COVID-19 Health & Safety


    Shakopee Public Schools has worked diligently to be measured, consistent and thoughtful in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The primary guiding principle since the start of the pandemic has been to maintain an appropriate balance between the health and safety of our students, staff and community AND providing the best learning opportunities possible for our students.

    The district has also been supported by the Scott County Department of Health and Shakopee Public Schools Health Services team, and has relied on input and constructive feedback from the Pandemic Response Advisory Team (PRAT). The members of the PRAT have invested much time and effort into becoming well informed on the many aspects of the COVID-19, and specifically its potential impact on school district services and activities. The PRAT consists of parents, students, teachers, staff, school board members and district leaders. 

    At all times, in all locations, for all ages, Shakopee Public Schools will employ the following health and safety mitigation recommendations from MDH and MDE:

    • Increased ventilation and air flow inside buildings
    • Cleaning and disinfecting of high touch surfaces
    • Greater emphasis on handwashing and hygiene
    • Greater emphasis on respiratory etiquette
    • Social distancing when practicable
    • Wearing face masks when riding on school buses as required by federal order

    Persons with symptoms of COVID-19, or persons infected by COVID-19  must follow health and safety rules and not be present in the school zone. 

    The most current resolution that includes school board approvals from the November 22, 2021 school board meeting can be found here. These changes are effective January 3, 2022. This resolution replaces previous resolutions approved by the School Board on August 23, 2021 and September 27, 2021.

    The district Health & Safety Guide provides a simplified explanation of the approved resolution and was updated on January 7, 2022.  

    Thank you for your continued commitment to our students, families and district. Together, we will make the 2021/22 school year a success!
