An update from Mankato Schools:

Unless Governor Walz’s executive order is extended, distance learning is scheduled to end on April 30. May 1 and May 4 have been identified as staff days to prepare for the return to traditional school on Tuesday, May 5.  The Minnesota Commissioner of Education Mary Cathryn Ricker and her staff remain in close contact with school districts across the state, and they have indicated information will be shared as soon as a decision is made on whether distance learning will extend beyond April 30.
