The school board at a working meeting last week continued to discuss the next steps in solving our strategic building facility issues.  The following message will be this week’s edition of the Star Post newspaper. 

Melrose Area Public Schools will be hosting three Townhall Listening Sessions following the August 9 Bond Referendum.  We invite the public to speak on ideas and concerns as the district moves forward to solve facility issues.

The draft of the  “School Opening and Mitigation Plan ‘22” is still on our website.  You can email me directly (address below) with any input on the plan. The School Board will take formal action at the September regular meeting. 

Please make sure if you haven’t already done this to download our school app. Whether you have an Apple or Android phone, just go to the app store and download the App, “Melrose Area Public Schools MN.”  Make sure it is the “Minnesota” Melrose.  Along with all of the information you will need on the district, it will also serve as the device for notifications on any school closings. I will be sending out a test message at noon on Thursday, October 20. This is the Thursday of the MEA break so there should be no reason for alarm.  If you do not receive a message and you have the app, you will need to follow-up with us to make sure we have the correct contact information.  I will continue to send this message out leading up to this test notification. 

Please continue to monitor our website for any updates on the next step of our building projects. 

If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me or any of the building principals.
