Select 2020-21 learning format preferences for each child attending an Anoka-Hennepin school by Aug. 10

(08/03/2020) Parents/guardians can assist Anoka-Hennepin Schools plan for the 2020-21 school year by providing preferences for each child attending school in the district. 

As shared late last week, the Minnesota Safe Learning Plan (EnglishSpanishHmongSomali, and Karen) allows schools to open in one of three formats depending on localized COVID-19 cases over 14 days and other operational factors that impact the district’s ability to deliver educational services. Based on recent health data and trends, Anoka-Hennepin plans to open in the hybrid learning format, a model that uses a combination of in-person school and learning at home. Every attempt will be made to keep households on the same schedule during hybrid learning. Please know that the district will continue to evaluate the most current COVID-19 case data for Anoka and Hennepin counties to guide decision making on any learning format changes. The district may change learning models throughout the school year as a result. 

In order to plan school for hybrid learning and the potential move to other learning formats, please share your family’s intentions for your child through the questions on this form by Monday, Aug. 10 (student ID needed to fill out this form can be found in My Student Information app via A-HConnect). A note, messages are being sent to parents/guardians for each school-age child attending an Anoka-Hennepin school since specific information is needed for each child enrolled. Please make sure to submit one response for each child and note that only one parent/guardian needs to complete the form for each child. 

It is understood that parents/guardians need additional information to make decisions. To assist in answering the questions presented, a Guidebook now provides additional information about the 2020-21 school year in Anoka-Hennepin. You’ll find information on learning, health and safety, transportation, and more. Check it out at
