Barton Open School

Monday, March 23, 2020

Hello Barton Families,

We hope this message finds you and your families in good health, a positive spirit and some peace in your hearts.  Our amazing, talented teachers have been working diligently to have Distance Learning ready as we will be extended beyond April 6, so that your students have learning access moving forward.  Please look in your child’s school email for their invitation to their teacher’s Google Classroom or contact the teacher for their class code. After 12:00 today our teachers had their Google Classrooms set up and they will be ready to go live for students after April 6th.  You will continue to have the option of going to the Distribution sites across the city to pick up a hard copy learning for your students Kindergarten thru 12th grade. The district has done a technology survey to identify the needs across the district for students and families. Minneapolis has also opened up free WiFi temporarily.

In addition to the 20 Learning Packet and Food Distribution sites, MPS will be adding direct delivery service to Mary's Place, Little Earth, and the Brian Coyle Center beginning on Monday, March 23. 

Also, check our website frequently for any additional information and our Barton Reads corner.

Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts each and everyday and we miss them tremendously.
