A Facebook group of District 77 parents and students is calling on the school district to fully return to in-person learning. The group is called Re-Open District 77. It currently has more than 500 members.

The description of the group says, “This is a place for parents and students of Mankato Area District 77 to share their stories about the mental health and academic concerns for 6-12 graders dealing with remote learning for nearly a full academic year and work together on ways to make sure our voices are heard by our district leadership.”

They are calling on the group to email and contact the school board and superintendent
