Spring Activities Update
Most of you have heard by now, but students will not be returning to the school this spring. This, unfortunately, means all spring activities have been canceled by the Minnesota State High School League. We have not been given a timeline for when things may start up again, but you will get that information as soon as it becomes available. Many people have been asking about spring activities fees they have paid. You have the option to carry paid fees over to your student(s) next activity in the fall, winter, or even next spring. You may also have the fee returned to you. Please use the link below to let us know what your preference is for your paid spring fees. One form per family is all that is necessary. Google Form Link
