20-21 School Year

On October 22, the Minnesota Departments of Health and Education released the latest county COVID case data for schools. Our local county rates more than doubled from 18.27 to over 40 confirmed cases per 10,000 residents.As a result, we will be required to change our learning model.

In accordance with the Governor's mandate and directions from MDH, MDE, Mille Lacs and Sherburne County Public Health Departments, our school district will move into Distance Learning for middle and high school students and into the Hybrid Model for primary and intermediate students beginning Wednesday, November 4.

In preparation for the shift in our models, there will be no school for students on November 2nd and 3rd. The state has allocated five days during this school year for the district to use for transition planning. We will use two of these days to implement this transition.

As a follow up, your school principal will be sending more specific information about our plans as we transition to the new models.

Please explore the topics on this page, and check back often as we sort out additional details.

We are sad that the situation has elevated to the point that our students cannot be on campus in person every day. Even in a distance learning model, we care about you, and our teachers are eager to stay connected and make the most of this difficult time. I’m confident that you - our Princeton Tigers - will emerge as the most resilient generation in history. Keep an eye on your goals; own your stripes, strengths and needs, and let us know how we can help you. Stay connected, stay active, and we will look forward to seeing you on campus again as soon as we can safely do so.


We hope you are enjoying your summer break.  We are looking forward to your return to school. Given that we haven’t been able to see most of you in person since mid-March, we can’t wait for you to add some life to our classrooms.
