“Wow! This is so nice of them….look at how smart they are!”
Just some of the comments from doctors and nurses on a very busy ICU at Mayo Clinic after being presented with their Poster of Thanks from your awesome 3rd grade class! Both Posters are now proudly displayed in the middle of the unit for all to see. Little acts of kindness are so appreciated! THANK YOU!
Ms. Bungum, Mrs. Carlson and Mrs. Streightiff are pretty neat teachers!


Message From Superintendent Slaathaug

Parents and Staff:

I am coming to Staff and Parents today to inform you we will be making some changes to our Safe Learning Model. Based on information from DCPH we will be moving grades 7-12 into hybrid starting Monday October 19th. This decision is being made only with our administrative team, Board Chair Patrick Towey, and most importantly DCPH as they are leading the way. These were the only influences considered in making this decision. This decision was not made lightly.

The school district continues to work closely with county and state public health officials in reviewing not only the 14-day published county-wide rate that lags by almost two weeks, but also looking closer at zip code data and current positive cases, isolations and quarantines within our own school district. PK-6 will stay full in person at this time.

The plan for this school week will be the following:

PK-12 will all be in person tomorrow Monday October 12th. Tuesday and Wednesday there will be no school for any students grades PK-12. We will be using this time for teacher preparedness and deep cleaning. SACC will be open all day Tuesday and Wednesday. We will obviously already be closed Thursday and Friday for MEA.

The 7-12 Hybrid plan will be announced sometime Tuesday afternoon Oct 13th.

So to recap.

Tomorrow Oct 12th. PK-12 all in person. Virtual PT conference will remain as scheduled in the HS.

Tuesday and Wednesday 13th and 14th. School closed for all students. 7-12 Hybrid plan to be announced Tuesday afternoon to parents via email and the school website.

Thank you all for your understanding and patience during the pandemic and please know we are doing the best we can here at school to educate your children and keep them safe. I want to thank Michelle Nelson, Amy Caron from DCPH, Jeff Snider, and Grant Klennert for their tireless efforts. I also want to thank our staff here at Hayfield Public schools for going above and beyond in their efforts to make this all work for our children and thank you as parents for your continued support.

We feel we have the best policies possible in place to keep our children safe here at school. And we still feel this is a very safe place for them to be during the school day and school hours. We will continue to need parental assistance outside of school if we are going to be able to keep our students at school as the year progresses.

Thank you

Gregg Slaathaug
