Information and resources for students, staff, families and community
June 10, 2021
We have successfully ended another school year and as we finish the 2020-2021 school year, we gratefully acknowledge the entire Fridley Community of teachers, staff, students, families and community members who pulled together to ensure that despite a very challenging year, our students received high quality education and finished the school year successfully. While we are optimistic that the worst of COVID-19 is behind us, we will continue to base our planning on guidelines set forth in the Minnesota's Safe Learning Plan, and on the latest recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
As we begin summer school programs and continue to prepare for fall, we want our community to be aware of current updates on health and safety impacting summer programs.
2021 SUMMER PROGRAM
The Minnesota Department of Health continues to recommend masks for unvaccinated people, and currently, vaccines are not available to children younger than 12 years old. Students and staff will continue to wear face masks inside buildings where students are present. Many health and safety measures, including social distancing will be encouraged, and cleaning protocols will be in place to help maximize safety for students and staff.

2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR
Fridley Public Schools will reopen with a regular in-person learning schedule for all students. The district's Fridley Online Academy will be available in the 2021-2022 school year and will serve students in grades 7-12 who wish to access their learning remotely. We continue to prioritize student and staff safety and will follow health and safety recommendations from the state departments of health, and education. Guidance in our planning will be updated if national and state recommendations evolve over the coming months.
COVID-19 vaccinations are readily available for all Minnesotans, ages 12+. To find up-to-date vaccination information and locations, click here to visit the state's COVID-19 Vaccinations website.
Fridley Public Schools 2020-2021 Reopening Plan
Like all school districts in the state and country, Fridley Public Schools opened the 2020-2021 school year amidst a pandemic that impacted the whole country. The district developed and implemented a Safe Learning Plan according to state mandates and guidance from the the Department of Health and Department of Education. Through the course of the year, the Safe Learning Plan was revised and amended according to county and state COVID-19 positivity rates.
