Health and Safety Protocols for 2021-22

  • The South St. Paul Public Schools (SSPPS) is committed to providing a safe, healthy and effective learning environment for each student and staff member. As we have done since the start of the pandemic, SSPPS will continue to follow the guidance from our health experts at the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) when making decisions on Health and Safety Protocols listed below.

    Part of that guidance is using the CDC COVID-19 Community Levels tool for communities and individuals to make decisions based on their local context and their unique needs. As the pandemic continues to evolve and guidance changes, SSPPS will reevaluate and update the Health and Safety Protocols as needed.
