Dear St. Anthony-New Brighton School Community,

The health of our students and staff is our priority. This school year, we have utilized several mitigation strategies to ensure in-person learning can occur and reduce community transmission to help students and staff remain healthy. We continue to monitor our COVID cases among students and staff and adjust our mitigation strategies as necessary.

On March 6, based on our low case counts and high vaccination rates, we moved from requiring masks to strongly recommending masks.

We are experiencing an increase in positive cases districtwide and are shifting our guidelines.

Masks are highly recommended for students at St. Anthony Middle School and St. Anthony Village High School to prevent an outbreak and continue participation in upcoming school events.

We are proud of our students in grades 6-12 who consistently wear masks since Spring Break. Keep it up!

PreK-12 Students

Students who test positive must isolate at home for 5 days. 
Students in grades PreK-12 can return on day 6 if: 

  • Students are symptom-free for 24 hours and 

  • Students are able to wear a well-fitting mask throughout the day while at school for days 6 through 10.

Parents with students, who are currently in isolation, will receive an email with a date their child can return to school if they meet the MDH criteria:

Our district will continue to follow Minnesota State High School League guidelines for student-athletes.

We have six weeks left in this school year and several events which are important to our students. 

Our goal is to ensure our students remain healthy so they can attend and participate in field trips, concerts, activities and athletic events, prom, grade level celebrations, and graduation with their classmates.

Thank you,
Dr. Renee Corneille, Superintendent
