Princeton Public Schools is working hard to protect its approximately 3300 students and 430 employees from COVID-19, but it’s important to recognize that there will be positive cases at many of our schools and activities throughout the school year. ISD 477, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), and the surrounding county public health agencies work  together to implement contact tracing when members of our district community tests positive.
