NBAPS Distance Learning Plan 2019-2020

Message From the Superintendent

  • Dear Families,Deb Henton

    The global spread of COVID-19, and Gov. Tim Walz’s subsequent executive created the need for Minnesota school districts to build a distance learning education model for all students starting March 30. This is an unprecedented situation and I could not be more pleased with the work of staff to prepare delivery of educational services remotely. 

    An important component to the state’s distance learning direction is the guidance to school districts to create and distribute distance learning plans to families. What follows is North Branch Area Public Schools’ plan for the delivery of a wide variety of resources during this time of social distancing.  I strongly encourage all families to review this document thoroughly and communicate any questions or concerns to your building principal.

    I am deeply grateful for the guidance of the Governor, the work of staff during the planning days of May 1 and 4 and the countless messages of support and offers to volunteer we have received from the community.

    As with any new initiative, it will continue to be a learning process. All of us at North Branch Area Public Schools appreciate your continued patience and understanding as we fine tune this new delivery method.


    Deb Henton, Ed.D.
