We know families and students have many questions about school during the 2020-21 school year. The links (below) will answer many of those questions you have about attendance, technology, child care and more. You can also expect to hear more from your child's school and teacher(s) leading up to and throughout the school year.

See the health and safety information once students return to in-person learning; also see the Returning to In-person Learning FAQ - Note: MPS schools are currently planning to transition to provide in-person supports to certain students. School staff will identify which students most need these supports. If health and safety indicators, among other factors, make this transition possible, identified students would come to their school building for supports at some point during second quarter (which starts on November 9, 2020). Not all students will be returning to school buildings; schools will be in touch with families whose children are eligible for getting in-person supports.
