e-Learning at Mahtomedi Public Schools
Our school district will use e-Learning days during emergency closings. We intend to use e-Learning days immediately with our first emergency closing. Building and program-specific e-Learning Day plans can be found below.

About e-Learning Days
- e-Learning Days allow our students to work from home, avoiding potentially dangerous commutes, and allow them to work in a safe, warm environment when the weather is unforgiving.
- e-Learning Days are intended to counter the loss of curriculum momentum resulting from school cancellations due to Minnesota’s winter weather.
- e-Learning Days cannot replace the face-to-face time students have with their teachers, but it can provide better continuity when school is interrupted.
- e-Learning Days can also negate the need for makeup school days during breaks or in June, helping families more effectively plan summer activities.
Announcing and Facilitating e-Learning Days (ELD)
- Families of students will receive notification of the impending ELD, along with our typical announcements regarding inclement weather days.
- Teachers will communicate learning activities for the students in the courses that would have met that day.
- Teachers will be online and accessible by phone during regular school hours to provide support for student learning.
- Accommodations will be made for students with special needs and for students who do not have access to the internet.
e-Learning Expectations Different by Grade Level
Students build academic stamina and persistence with practice as they mature, and expectations for students to complete activities in an independent context will increase as they grow older. A positive outcome of an e-Learning day is student practice with self-direction.
For an e-Learning day, teachers will communicate the anticipated time requirements for an assignment and in the elementary grades will include choice and flexibility for families.
