Important Message from Superintendent Tucci Osorio

Dear 622 families,

Earlier today, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz announced that distance learning will continue for the rest of the school year. There is no school for students on May 1 and May 4 so staff can prepare additional distance learning plans.

I know that this decision brings mixed emotions to our students, staff, and families. The pandemic arrived quickly, and when we first were directed to close our school buildings in March, we did not realize it would be the last time we would see our students in person this school year.

District 622 will continue to offer free meals for students and childcare for health care and emergency workers through the end of the school year. Please visit www.isd622.org/distancelearning for more information. 

We know there are many questions related to school-related activities. The Minnesota State High School League has announced the cancelation of spring athletics and fine arts activities. We will be sharing more information in the coming days and weeks about graduation and other events that mark the end of the school year for our students. 

Once again, thank you for your patience, understanding, and flexibility during this unprecedented time. We will get through this together. Please continue to stay safe, practice social distancing, and remain at home as much as possible.

Warm Regards,

Christine Tucci Osorio
Superintendent
