    UPDATE 07/29/21:  UPDATE - BACK TO SCHOOL INFORMATION
    We want to make sure there is no confusion for our families now that the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) shared their guidance for the school year. As there are no new requirements noted in the updated MDE guidance, and our recommendations are in alignment with the MDE guidance, we do not anticipate any shifts at this time in our planning as communicated in our previous update. We added one point of clarification pertaining to vaccinated individuals. This is highlighted in the communication. Learn more.
    UPDATE 07/27/21:  BACK TO SCHOOL INFORMATION

    UPDATE 11/12/20:  DISTRICT ANNOUNCES LEARNING MODEL CHANGE
    Tonight, district leadership presented a plan for a learning model shift to the Jordan School Board. With a growing number of positive COVID-19 cases in Scott County, increased community spread, and an increased number of school staff being directly impacted by COVID-19 isolation and quarantine, which affects our daily operations, a decision has been made to move to a Distance Learning Model for all students in grades K-12 effective Monday, November 23, 2020. This decision is not made lightly as we know it impacts students and families. To inform this decision, our district COVID-19 Leadership Team reviewed state and county data and trends, as well as local data (number of positive cases, quarantines, and ability to safely staff our buildings). Learn more.
    UPDATE 08/26/2020:
    We have developed a robust Health and Safety Roadmap for our district families, students, and staff. These health and safety protocols, like those implemented throughout our community and state, will help minimize risks for our students, staff, families, and community members. Learn more.
    UPDATE 08/14/2020:
    Today the district announced "Return to Learn: Orientation Week." The first week will look different than usual. Students and staff have been out of the physical classroom setting since March 18, 2020, and when they return to the classroom, the structures will have changed into a hybrid learning environment. Jordan Public Schools will bring students together on these very special targeted days throughout the “Return to Learn: Orientation Week” to focus on returning to this new learning environment while transitioning students back to school.
