ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools

Safe Learning Models

Osseo Area Schools families have two choices for the 2020-2021 school year:

  1. Follow the school district’s fluid implementation of in-person, hybrid, or distance learning models, moving in and out of them as needed according to state guidance and coronavirus activity OR
  2. Choose a 100% distance learning option (Distance Learning Academy) if you prefer the certainty that your child’s education in 2020-2021 will not include any in-person/on-campus instruction.
