UPDATE: March 31, 2020


Dear Volunteers,

We hope you and your family are doing well during this unprecedented time as we all navigate the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Our school district's leadership continues to make decisions based on directives from Governor Walz and what is in the best interest of students, staff, and our community engaged in our schools and programs. Here's the latest information for your review:

  • In compliance with Governor Walz’s Executive Order 20-19, distance learning will begin Monday, March 30, 2020 and last through Monday, May 4, 2020. Our schools will remain closed to students during this time.
  • While our physical doors are closed to students, Mindy and I are exploring possibilities for engaging our volunteers with students as we know the important role you play in their lives and the support you provide.  We need to be mindful of safety considerations when connecting volunteers with students and proceed in accordance with the district's Volunteers Policies and Procedures, which prohibit connecting with students via emails, social media, and meeting students outside of the school buildings. This policy applies to volunteers working with youth and/or adult students.
  • While Mindy and I are not physically in the office, we will be working from home. Please feel free to be in touch with us.
  • For volunteers who need verification of service hours, please understand VIP is able to confirm your hours through the end of February. We will be able to verify your March hours in the next few weeks. We thank you for your patience. 

As valued members of our school community,  Mindy and I will continue to provide updates as they become available.  We know you miss your students and think about their well-being. No doubt, they are thinking of you, too!  As always, your patience, understanding, and support are greatly appreciated. We will get through this difficult time together.


Take good care,

Jill & Mindy
