Safe and open schools status

  • Anoka-Hennepin Schools understands that parents/guardians, students and staff value clear communication and as much advance notice as possible regarding school and how the district will mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on school operations. Anoka-Hennepin remains committed to providing instruction five days per week throughout the entire school year.

    Face coverings or masks are one of many layered mitigation strategies used in Anoka-Hennepin schools, including additional health and safety protocols, communication and notification, vaccination and testing resources, and more. View the 2021-22 Safe Learning Plan.

Current operating status

  • Beginning January 28, 2022, a School Board resolution regarding masks by school site was adopted. At this time, face coverings/masks are not required in Anoka-Hennepin Schools. If or when county case rates exceed 50 per 10,000 in Anoka and Hennepin counties, the school district may consider initiating mask mitigation strategies by school if absence rates peak.
