• Byron Public Schools: Return to School Plan

  • Our Model

    For the 2020-21 school year, Byron Public Schools will enter into a hybrid for 6-12 students.  Students in grades K-5 will report to school in person.  Families will have an option where they can enter into a Family Flex Option where students will be able to attend school in a full distance model.  To get more details please see the district's FULL Return to School Plan.

     

    Bullying, Harassment, & Discrimination
    If anyone is a victim of a hate crime because of ​fear around COVID-19​, please contact the police. We enforce the ​Minnesota Human Rights Act​ that prohibits discrimination based on someone’s race, ethnicity, or other protected classes. The creation of the Discrimination Helpline comes at a time when there are continued reports from Asian American community members who are experiencing heightened fear and backlash due to COVID-19.

    How to Connect:
    ● Minnesotans can call the Discrimination Helpline at 1-833-454-0148 or complete and submit this online form. Translation/interpretation services are available. The helpline is staffed Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
