Dear Northfield Public Schools Families,
I hope this message finds you well. I want to share critical information about the State of Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector and the renaming of Sibley Elementary School.
COVID-19 Vaccine Connector
According to the Minnesota Department of Education, “the Minnesota COVID-19 Vaccine Connector, which is a tool that helps Minnesotans find out when, where, and how to get their COVID-19 vaccine.
This system is a proactive way for all Minnesotans to indicate their interest in receiving a vaccine so that when they become eligible, they can be alerted and connected to resources to schedule a vaccine appointment.”
Sibley Elementary School to be renamed Spring Creek Elementary School
At its meeting last night, the School Board voted to use Spring Creek Elementary School as the new name for Sibley Elementary School beginning July 1, 2021. The renaming of the school is to bring the facility into compliance with Policy 809, which the Board adopted in October. As part of the renaming, a historical display will be placed at the building explaining its history, the grade levels it has served, and the reasons for its renaming.
As always, I am grateful for our cooperation as a community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Matt Hillmann, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
