MN’s Schools Closed For Learning, But Open For Emergency Personnel Child Care, Planning
Last Friday, Gov. Tim Walz told schools to keep their doors open. He said they were needed to care for the children of people who worked in health care.
Two days later the plan changed.
“We have thought this through and I will be willing to say at this time that we have the most comprehensive plan for what school closing looks like of any state in the nation,” Walz said.
Minnesota’s plan means canceling classes for a week and a half to give teachers and district leaders the time to prepare for distance learning.
But while classes are canceled, Walz is calling on districts to leave their doors open for the children of health care and emergency workers.
