Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

This year has been very different and difficult for all of us. Today we are sending out first quarter report cards reflecting the work students have done while distance learning, which we all know is not normal school. We are taking this into consideration with grading as should parents and guardians. Please watch the mail early next week for your children’s report card. If you have any questions on grading, or you feel your child needs additional support please do not hesitate to contact the teacher.

I would like to address Covid-19 briefly. As we all know the rates are increasing across the country as well as Minnesota. The 14-day COVID-19 case rate for Hennepin County has increased from 15.14 in September to the current  34.25 cases per 10,000 people.

While the state allows hybrid learning for elementary schools at case rates up to 50, we have chosen to take a more conservative approach when deciding to move to a new stage especially with the increasing rates we now see in Minnesota and the metro area. We regularly consult with Hennepin County and the Minnesota Departments of Health and Education to help guide our decision-making.

Stonebridge will continue evaluate Covid-19 rates and provide you with updates as rates change. At this time, we are anticipating we will not be able to make any change to hybrid until sometime after winter break, unless there is a significant Covid-19 rate decrease. We will reach out to you regarding any changes as soon as possible.

We understand and apologize for the added stress this process has put on our students, families and staff. While we keep working toward hybrid learning, please know that our teachers and support staff are doing everything they can to make distance learning the best it can be.

Thank you for supporting your students, and Stonebridge World School.

Be well and stay safe,

Barbara Novy

Executive Director
