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.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have wide-ranging health and economic impacts, please know that there are resources to help you buy food for K-12 students. You might be eligible to receive up to $130 to spend on groceries for each month your child was distance learning or in the hybrid model. If your child is approved for free or reduced-price school meals or is on SNAP, MFIP, or Tribal TANF you are eligible for P-EBT Benefits for the months in which your child attended school through a distance or hybrid-learning model for the majority of the month. Please make sure we have your current address and contact information.

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
The Cloquet School District, in conjunction with Cloquet Transit, will again be offering a Winter Bus Route for those students who are not eligible to ride regular busses. This will be for a limited time, due to the extreme cold weather. These routes will start Monday, February 8th, both morning and afternoon and end at the District's discretion, sometime in the Spring.
We are very excited and looking forward to seeing students transition back to school! The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) have released updates to school guidance over the past weeks. For the safety of students, staff and our community - we would like to share this information along with a few reminders.
**Last day of meal delivery by the bus is Friday, 1/22** January 26th through February 5th: 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. We will also have three distribution sites for meals to be picked up from 11:00-12:30. Buses will be placed for community distribution at Pinehurst Park, Braun Park, and the vacant parking lot of Big Lake Road and Brevator. Families will not need to order in advance to pick up a meal at the school entrance or the distribution sites.
There will be no school for grades K-8 on January 21st and 22nd and no school for grades 9-12 on January 26th and 27th to allow staff to plan for the changes in learning model. Also, please note we do not have school on January 18th or 25th. These are staff development days that were a part of the typical school calendar. On January 26th, the Cloquet Public Schools will return grades K-2 and grades 5-6 to full in-person instruction. Students in grades 3 and 4 will continue with distance learning until they return to in-person instruction on February 8th. Students in grades 7 and 8 will return to hybrid instruction on the 26th. Students in grade 9 and grade 12 will return to hybrid instruction on January 28th. Students in grades 10 and 11 will continue with distance learning until they return to hybrid learning on February 8th.
Cloquet Public Schools is currently making preparations to see if a return to in-person learning is possible under these requirements. Elementary families should expect a contact from their student’s classroom teacher this week. Teachers will be surveying families regarding your intentions to send your child back to in-person learning. This information is necessary for the district to determine any additional staffing needs prior to announcing bringing students back into the buildings. Our hope is to return our elementary students to inperson learning as soon as safely possible.
