CORRECTION: District will offer face coverings for students and staff

The following information is provided as an update to a July 22 message on face coverings

In response to the new guidance that came out yesterday from Governor Walz and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), Anoka-Hennepin Schools is updating its message in regards to students providing their own face coverings. The district will provide face coverings to students who request and/or need them. This same system will be in place for employees. Personal face coverings may also be used. 


The state order requires mandatory wearing of face coverings indoors, with some exceptions, beginning on Saturday, July 25. The MDH guidance on school districts providing face coverings pertains to a return to school under either the in-person or hybrid models in the fall. Programs currently in operation, such as Adventures Plus school-age care, will receive additional information directly from those programs.  


Look for more detailed guidance on how to acquire a face covering from the district soon. Visit for the latest information.
