12-7-2021 Backpacks are to be stored in lockers during the school day. Students were issued a lock that can be placed on the locker to keep belongings safe inside the assigned locker. The handbook that the Nashwauk-Keewatin School Board approved states, “Backpacks, Heavy coats, Blankets: Students shall not bring backpacks (unless they are see-through), heavy or long jackets or blankets to class for safety reasons.” Students who choose not to follow the expectation, will receive a behavior referral and a consequence determined by administration. For further information, please see the handbook regarding backpacks. Mr. Gangl

Dear ISD 319 Parents and Guardians, We have a new COVID-19 Mitigation Decision Model in place. When the school district reaches 3% of the students and staff having lab confirmed cases of COVID-19, the entire district will mask for two weeks. At this time, we have reached 3% of our population who have lab confirmed cases of COVID-19. Masking will be required before, during, and after school for all students, staff, and visitors to the district. This requirement will be in place from November 10th to November 24th. November 25th the requirement will return to a recommendation for students. The district requirement will supersede any classroom or building masking requirements. Per federal guidelines, masks are still required to ride the school bus. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
