Mankato Schools Superintendent Paul Peterson says like all the other school districts, they’re preparing for all three scenarios when it comes to the start of next school year: return to the building, distance learning hybrid, or distance learning only.

“What the state is saying that there is likely a situation where you could need to implement all three plans throughout the 2020-2021 school year depending on where the virus is.”

Peterson says more details on the plans will come in July and August.
