Memo from Superintendent Jeff Powers regarding school closing

DASSEL, COKATO, MN – Dear Dassel-Cokato Families,

In response to the COVID 19 outbreak, and the Governor’s decision to close schools, we will be running a 2 hour late start schedule on Monday, March 16 and canceling school and all activities beginning on Tuesday, March 17 for the remainder of the week. Consider this an extension of spring break with no instruction being provided.

The purpose of the 2 hour late start tomorrow is for teachers to prepare directions for students and ensure that students have the materials they need for each of their classes in case we have an extended period of school closure past March 27.

The uncertainty of this situation is going to require regular communication and flexibility. Please watch the district website for updates.

Thank you for your trust and support. We will get through this together.


Jeff Powers
