MPS has created a Return to the Classroom Family Guide with important information about returning to in-person learning this fall. Get information about health and safety procedures, COVID-19 mitigation strategies, ways to keep students safe, and other important updates in schools.
The district recommends that all families read the guide before the first day of school. This publication will answer many questions about school procedures and the preparations the district has taken to enhance the safety of students and staff.
The book is currently available on the MPS Roadmap to Readiness website in English under the Quick Links section. Translations in Arabic, Burmese, Hmong, Karen, Rohingya, Somali, and Spanish will be added soon.

MPS will host a series of community engagement sessions to share information and get input for the use of COVID-19 relief grant funds. The district is receiving financial support under the federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief fund (ESSER).
Students, families, staff, and community members are invited to attend to help prioritize the allocation of relief dollars, address the impact of the pandemic on learning, and provide input about delivering a high-quality education to children.
MPS anticipates about $506 million to allocate over the next three school years. At least 20 percent of this allocation must be used to mitigate learning loss due to the pandemic.
The district has identified five priority areas for allocating ESSER relief funds:
