COVID-19 Protocols

Thank you for trusting us with your needs for enrichment, connection, and learning. 

We are working diligently to re-develop our programming. The situation is rapidly-evolving and updates change daily as new information becomes available. We are closely monitoring the guidelines and recommendations from the Governor and the Minnesota Department of Health and Education. Upcoming classes may be held with modified delivery.  If you ever have any questions about COVID-19 plans and the precautions we are taking, please contact Stephanie Becken.


Class Sizes—Class sizes will be kept low to account for proper social distancing.  Register early to ensure a spot in your favorite class.  All registrations must be made in advance.  Instructors are not able to register participants at the class.  

Waivers—every participant needs to have a COVID-19 waiver on file. This waiver will need to be filled out for each class.  Click HERE for a link to the waiver and also note a link will be sent out before your class begins.   Within this waiver are the expectations of participation as well as what participants can expect from their instructors. These MUST be filled out before participation happening at any ISD 200 site.  

Physical Distance—every participant needs to be ready for maintain physical distance from others during program times. There will be reminders and our spaces will look different to accommodate.

Refund—We will be flexible with our refund policy during this period of time.  If you are unable to attend a class due to being exposed to COVID-19 or showing any symptoms of sickness, please contact us in advance to discuss your refund options. 

Class Modification—Classes may be cancelled or modified due to the current pandemic.  If you are registered, we will notify you via email or phone of the changes.  Make sure your contact information is updated in your online Community Education account when you register. 

Class Platform—Classes are offered either in-person or using a virtual online platform.  If you are more comfortable taking a class in an online virtual platform, contact us to see if a virtual option is available for your class.  

Health & Safety is Top Priority—Before attending an in-person class: monitor yourself for exposure to COVID-19 or sickness and stay home when necessary, wear a mask to class, practice proper social distancing during class, and wash your hands before you enter the class.  

Masks are required for all programming due to the Minnesota State mandate. This includes all community education programming. If you are registered for a physical activity (like soccer, tennis, etc), you will still need a mask for times when you are not engaged in activity. This includes indoor and outdoor activities. Please come prepared and work with your children so they are prepared as well.

Drop Off & Pick Up—Every effort will be made to do contactless hand offs. This means parents and other siblings will often be asked to stay in their vehicle and will be asked not to stay for the program. This is to keep as few people congregating as possible. This is where great communication will be important.

Thank you for your commitment to lifelong learning. We look forward to returning to learning!
