COVID-19 Update: May 2021

As you may have heard in Governor Walz’s announcement this week, he is loosening restrictions related to COVID-19 effective Memorial Day weekend. While this is good news, we want to remind you that the pandemic is not over and case rates continue to be high in Hennepin County. Please continue to follow best practices like regularly washing your hands, staying home when you are sick, etc. Here is additional guidance from the State of Minnesota.

What We Stand For

The civil rights movement is not a chapter in History class. It is here and it is now. As educators, it is our job to support and empower students through these challenging times. Please read our statement on where we stand as a district.

Hate Has No Place Here

In Richfield Public Schools, we pride ourselves on our open, welcoming community. We want every student, family and staff member to feel supported and valued.
