March 20 update from Superintendent Paul Peterson

On behalf of our entire Mankato Area Public Schools’ community, thank you for your patience, understanding and support as we continue working through these challenging times. Mankato Area Public Schools is incredibly grateful for the community-wide support for children that has been expressed over the last several days. All aspects of our community continue to adjust to a new reality for the foreseeable future. Something that certainly remains is the support and enthusiasm for public education throughout Eagle Lake, Madison Lake, Mankato and North Mankato. Our faculty and staff can feel it, and it makes a big difference. Thank you!

 

As we go into the weekend, staff continue to work on equitable distance learning plans and planning will move forward throughout next week. If distance learning is deemed necessary in Minnesota, it will begin the week of March 30. While definitive direction has not been provided yet, we anticipate receiving news regarding this next week. When information is shared, it will be communicated with the families we serve.
