Post-Thanksgiving Break Remote Learning Week: November 30 - December 4

Case numbers continue to rise across the country and students and staff will likely travel and gather with family members and others outside of the household during Thanksgiving break.  

Because of the increased risk, we want to give community members time to monitor symptoms and possible exposure before returning to school. Therefore, Totino-Grace will implement one week of remote learning for all students, Monday, November 30 - Friday, December 4. 

We believe this decision will allow an enhanced opportunity for TG students and staff to safely return to campus on Monday, December 7, and our school to remain open for in-person, on campus learning through Friday, December 18, before Christmas break.

Governor Walz announced new COVID-19 restrictions this past Wednesday, November 18, which includes both organized youth and high school sports/activities for the next four weeks. Beginning on Saturday, November 21, all non-curricular, in-person activities and athletics, including games, performances, competitions, practices, and meetings will be paused. This includes non-school-related activities in school facilities, as well as the use of gyms, weight rooms, fitness centers, the theater, dance studio, and other facilities. This pause is currently scheduled to end on Saturday, December 19.

Exceeding Expectations During a Time of Unpredictable Circumstances

Totino-Grace exceeded expectations during remote learning throughout the spring of 2020. That success, paired with additional facility and technology improvements and teacher training and development, contributed to enhanced academic planning for the 2020-2021 In-Person Flexible Hybrid Plan.

In order to prepare students to be successful synchronous learners if implementations is needed this year, a Remote Learning Week took place during the third week of school.

WCCO was on campus to capture the fun and games at the Homecoming Week Pepfest on October 1. We are so thankful our Eagles are able to be together in-person every day and maintain important TG traditions that are a valuable part of the high school experience. 

WCCO reporters visited TG on our first day of classes to learn what the first days of school will look like as students return amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

In-Person A / B Daily Academic Schedule

In order to protect our community members and maintain a healthy environment, Totino-Grace High School will follow and enforce Minnesota's Stay Safe Plan and recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health to the best of our capabilities.
