Distance learning technology distribution and personal belonging pick up

March 24, 2020

Anoka Family parents/guardians, 


As our school prepares for distance learning, I’m sharing information on dates and times for distribution details for student Chromebooks as well as items that were left in lockers.


The time and date for both of these activities is Thursday, March 26, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

  • 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Student last names beginning with A-F
  • 1 to 3 p.m. Student last names beginning with G-O
  • 3 to 5 p.m. Student last names beginning with P-Z
  • 5 to 7 p.m. Open time for any that missed their time slot

For item distribution, students/families will be directed to a parking spot in front of the main entrance. At this parking spot, staff members will assist you with your Chromebook and school item needs. Students and families will stay in their vehicle. (See map below.) To get a Chromebook, students need their student ID or have their student identification number. Staff will give you your items right at your vehicle. For those students who have an activity locker at the high school, please drive up to the fieldhouse door, where a staff member will give you your activity locker items. Students who already have what they need (i.e. computer or do not have an assigned locker) should not come to school.

During pick up, our school is asking students and families to:

  • Provide a student identification number to get a Chromebook. 
  • Please stay home if you are sick. If you absolutely cannot come to school during these times, please contact the school at 763-506-6200.
  • Please follow directions of staff and signs in the drive up area.  Please be patient and understanding during this process as these are uncharted waters.  
  • Only pick up what is essential for learning in the coming weeks. Our school is continuing to work from the assumption that school will resume sometime this spring. If it doesn’t, there will be another opportunity for families to pick up other materials.

Parents/guardians with students at Anoka Middle School for the Arts, and in cluster elementary schools who need a Chromebook for distance learning, will also be able to get a device at this time. 


Thank you for your cooperation as we prepare for distance learning in our school.
