Summer 2020 Announcement
(updated 8/14/2021) COVID19/Weather/Closing Policy:
We generally follow Minneapolis Public Schools district's decisions on closing/delaying school. However, the Gaia Council voted in March 2020 to allow flexibility with this policy.
The well being of our community is our top priority. We are keeping up to date on current available guidelines and scientific data. At this time, we are confident in our safety precautions, partially due to our small size and cooperative environment. We plan to be open for in-person school on Sept. 8, 2021 with masks, social distancing and other safety policies in place. These include: temperature checks, regular disinfection of our space, increased air flow and medical grade quality air filtration. We plan to be outdoors as much as possible and will limit the number of people in each room. Hand sanitizer and masks will be available for all students and staff. Our staff have been vaccinated.
We will also continue to offer ZOOM meetings and classes as much as possible for those who are not in person.
