Little Falls Community Schools
2020-2021 Learning Plans

The Little Falls Community School District transitioned to Distance Learning on October 26. Below you will find our three learning plans, as well as a plan for preschool and our COVID Testing Protocol.

Transition to Distance Learning

The COVID case rate numbers for Morrison County and LFCS are at their lowest points in nearly ten weeks, and we are hopeful that this trend will continue throughout the rest of December and into January. This gives us the confidence to be able to announce some exciting information about returning our students to school:

  • Preschool and Elementary students in the district will return to In-Person Learning on Monday, January 11.
  • Middle School and High School students are slated to return to In-Person Learning on Tuesday, January 19. Should the data not support a return to In-Person for the secondary students, the district will instead begin back in a Hybrid model for Middle School and High School students on January 19. However, the preference is to bring secondary students back to school In-Person on January 19.
  • Activities have been cleared to begin on Monday, January 4. Our Activities Department continues to update the information concerning sports, fine arts, and academic extracurricular activities. Contact the Activities Department @ 616-2207 with any questions you may have

See the full December 22 post for more information on calendar changes.
