We receive $500,000 in Title funding from the federal government and that provides additional math and reading interventions for students who need additional supports so that they are performing at grade level. We receive approximately $1,600,000 from Compensatory revenue which pays for approximately 15 teachers to keep our class sizes smaller. If we do not receive this funding, our class sizes would be much higher.
If your child will be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2021 it's time to register for KINDERGARTEN! We have special days set at each school for registration.

Cloquet Public Schools will need to shift to a distance learning day for one day on March 26 th due to anticipated staffing shortages. The shortages are being caused by illness/side effects from COVID vaccination. We apologize for the inconvenience this will undoubtedly cause families, but the closure is unavoidable. We will provide lunch to students using the same lunch bus stops that were in place during our districtwide distance learning period and food will be available for pick up at the main entry of each school building on this date. We will also be hosting a limited number of students for Tier I emergency childcare at our Zion site for families who qualify. Eligible families may sign up for the childcare by contacting Kids Corner at 879-0929. The eligibility criteria for Tier I emergency care are the same as during our last distance learning period. Families needing transportation to Tier I emergency care should contact Cloquet Transit in advance to make arrangements. Please be sure you have a spot secured with Kids Corner before contacting Transit for transportation. Cloquet Transit can by reached by calling 879-1291.

The Tech Support Hotline is still available during regular school hours by calling 218-878-3080 and following the menu to get to the best person to help you. Distance learners and their parents can also submit a ticket on the school website if they need assistance as well.
The Cloquet School Board has made the decision to bring our Cloquet High School students back to Full In-Person Learning starting on Tuesday, March 16th. Click here for some important notes as we begin this transition back to full in-person classes:
As we continue through the school year, we are seeing loss of staff for multiple days due to quarantine. This is often not because of confirmed COVID cases, but is due to staff or family members exhibiting symptoms of illness that warrant a COVID test. These tests overwhelmingly come back negative, but it requires staff to quarantine in their homes until the test results are returned. This public safety requirement is creating the very real possibility that a school or classroom may need to be cancelled for a day due to lack of staffing.
Lunch options for Distance or Hybrid Learning Model- Hot lunch meals will be available for pick up each day in the main entrance of Washington, Churchill and the Middle School from 11:00-12:00, and the High School from 11:00-12:30. The Hot Lunch menu can be found on the district website www.isd94.org
