Young students at table learning

Latest Updates

6/1 Update

We want to extend a special thank you to our scholars, families, and staff who have been part of this unprecedented 19-20 school year. While we look to finish the year strong, Prodeo Academy leaders and staff are engaged in planning for the 20-21 school year. We are following the latest developments and regulations regarding school openings in the all and looking forward to a successful academic year come September. 

At this time, while we do not know the exact blend of on-site and remote learning that will have to take place next year, Prodeo Academy is committed to serving every child. We recognize that some of our students will require distance learning as an option until a vaccine is available.  For that reason, Prodeo Academy is committed to providing remote learning options to qualifying students in accordance with MDE and state guidance, while also ensuring that scholars returning to classes on campus remain healthy and safe. 

Please look to the School Reopening section of the website for updates throughout the summer about our distance learning and school reopening plans. 

4/28 Update
Under Governor Walz's new Executive Order to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, schools in Minnesota will offer Distance Learning for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Prodeo Academy will continue to offer classes online, while providing services such as meal distribution and childcare for emergency and medical workers at school sites. To prepare for the Extended Distance Learning Period, we are mandated to make Friday May 1st and Monday May 4th, planning days for our teachers. Any new distance learning work will be posted by Friday and families should use the weekend and Monday to catch up on any incomplete work from the past few weeks.
Work packets and materials for the Extended Distance Learning period for scholars in PreK, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 5th Grade must be picked up from the school starting on Monday May 4th from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm. 
Please contact the school with any questions.
