Curfew added after Brooklyn Center unrest; Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center elementary schools remain closed, Jackson Middle and Champlin Park High schools asynchronous

(04/12/2021) At the request of state officials and in cooperation with law enforcement and public safety partners, temporary curfews are in place for Anoka and Hennepin counties. This means that all evening and after school activities are canceled today, Monday, April 12, starting at 7 p.m. The curfew will then be lifted at 6 a.m., Tuesday, April 13. Any online programming will continue as scheduled.

In addition, based on concerns shared from safety officials, the following Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center Schools will be impacted on Tuesday:

Elementary/early learning: Evergreen Park Elementary, Monroe Elementary, Champlin-Brooklyn Park Academy, Oxbow Creek Elementary and Riverview Early Childhood Center will be closed. No distance learning or in-person instruction will be offered. Adventures Plus programs will not be operating at these sites. Monroe, Riverview and Oxbow Creek will still be open for the City of Brooklyn Park elections unless a change is announced by the city.  

Secondary schools: Jackson Middle School and Champlin Park High School will offer asynchronous learning for all students. Students in need of social or emotional support are encouraged to reach out to counseling staff or social workers at school for support. Virtual drop-in sessions will be available to support student needs. Links will be shared directly by the school.   

Students that live in Brooklyn Center or Brooklyn Park and attend another district school will not be provided transportation and will be considered an excused absence.  

Given the evolving nature of this community issue, please remain alert for future messages.  

Thank you for your understanding of the school district’s role as a partner in ensuring safety for students and the greater community.
