Planning & Decision Making

On a regular basis, District 279 administrators consult with state, county and local leaders to ensure our plans use the most up-to-date information available. Some of these conversations include:

  • Consultations with the Minnesota Department of Education, the Minnesota Department of Health, Hennepin County Public Health and the Minnesota School Boards Association
  • Calls between Supt. McIntyre and other area superintendents
  • Daily communication between our 25 COVID-19 site coordinators

Data, guidelines and input considered and ultimately used in decisions include:

  • Minnesota Department of Health state data 
  • County-level COVID-19 data
  • Expertise of district leadership with experience from last school year
  • Feedback from students, parents/caregivers and community members
  • Guidance from the ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools School Board

2021-2022 COVID-19 Preparedness Plan

Osseo Area Schools is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for all our students, staff, community and visitors. To ensure we have a safe and healthy learning space, Osseo Area Schools has developed the following COVID-19 Preparedness Plan in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. All staff are responsible for implementing this plan. Our goal is to mitigate the potential for transmission of COVID-19 in our schools and communities, and that requires full cooperation among our workers and management.

Osseo Area Schools’ COVID-19 Preparedness Plan follows the guidance developed by the state of Minnesota, available at the Minnesota Department of Health. Each district location has its own COVID-19 Preparedness Plan that includes site-specific information and is administered by the Building COVID-19 Coordinator.
