MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL METRO, MN — The start of the 2020 school year is days away for many kids across the Twin Cities metro. Most schools — both public and private — have announced the education model they will use as the nation continues to battle the spread of coronavirus.

For public school districts, the recommended model of education per the Minnesota Department of Health — wether it’s distance learning, hybrid, or in-person — depends on how many coronavirus cases are reported in the county

While the statewide guidelines issue by Gov. Tim Walz earlier this summer don’t apply to private schools in Minnesota, many private school administrators are going through similar decision making processes as their peers in the public districts.

All schools that do open during the school year must follow public health guidelines on masks, social distancing, personal hygiene, screening, and cleaning practices.
