Eagle Ridge Academy is currently in Full School (Grades K-12) Distance Learning.
Per pages 3-4 of the Eagle Ridge Academy 2020-2021 School Year Plan, Eagle Ridge Academy has developed our own, more restrictive scale based on Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) data to direct which learning scenario we will be in throughout the year depending on the number of cases per county. We will use the Minnesota Department of Health data for the three counties in which most of our students reside as our primary decision factor. Hennepin County will have the greatest impact on our decision as over 85% of our students reside in Hennepin County. The county level data will best determine the Learning Scenario. However, MDH may contact us regarding localized cases that impact the school specifically. We will then collaborate with MDH to determine a specific plan for our school.
Our COVID-19 Case Reporting Gauge Chart will be updated on our website and social media every Friday with the most recent data. Families will be alerted via email and text message if our learning scenario must change due to updated case data. The MDH data was updated on November 27, with Hennepin County at 124.93 cases per 10,000 people. According to the Eagle Ridge Academy Learning Scenarios based on 14-day case rate range, this puts all schools (grades K-12) in distance learning.
