COVID-19 Distance Learning at Hmong College Prep Academy
Greeting Parents, Students, and Families,
Governor Tim Walz and Education Commissioner Mary Cathryn Ricker announced last week that all Minnesota public school districts and charter schools will implement a Distance Learning Period beginning on March 30, 2020, until at least April 30, 2020
It was announced that all Minnesota public schools will close from March 18 through March 27, 2020, to allow districts and charter schools to develop distancing learning plans.
Just a reminder that we are closed for Spring Break (March 30 – April 3). Our HCPA teachers and staff have been working hard over the last several weeks to prepare resources for distance learning. This learning will start after Spring Break – Monday, April 6th. Students should not start their packet work/ distance learning until that time.
If you have not picked up a student learning packet for your students in grades K-2, please contact Mrs. Krista Skoglund at email@example.com
We care about keeping you, your family, and our staff safe and healthy, and look forward to seeing you online in the coming days as we prepare for extended distance learning!
Dr. Christianna Hang, Superintendent
Material Distribution ProcessPosted by Tony Hang on 3/20/2020 6:00:00 PM
Our K-5 teachers and staff at HCPA have been working hard over the last several days to prepare resources for distance learning. In the event of a school closure due to COVID-19, we will move to distance learning for all students in Kindergarten through 12thGrade. Kindergarten, 1stgrade, and second grade students will be receiving a packet of lessons and activities as well as links to online resources. 3rd, 4th, and 5thgrade students will be receiving a Chromebook so that they can conduct their lessons online with their teachers. This video is to explain the process for which you will pick up and receive these resources for your student!
Here are the details:
- Chromebooks and learning materials for K-5 will be available for pick up next week.
- Monday, March 23rdwill be pickup for students who have a last name that starts with A-U.
- Tuesday, March 24thwill be pickup for students who have a last name that starts with V-Z.
- Hours for pickup on both days will be 9:00-noon and 1:00-3:00.
- All resources will be brought out to your vehicle for you.
- When you arrive, please enter the parking lot across from the Main Office C. There will be staff members directing traffic. Please review the included map.
- A parent or guardian must be present to check out the resources. For 3rd-5thgrade students, we will go over the Chromebook contract with you at that time. You will have the option to purchase insurance for the device to protect against potential damage.
- If you are a high schooler or middle schooler and you left something in your locker, you may also come during this time. Someone will retrieve your items for you.
Please note – Distance and e-Learning would not start until after Spring Break – Monday, April 6th. K-2ndgrade students should not start their packet work until that time.
We care about keeping you, your family, and our staff safe and healthy. If you are sick, we also ask that you please do not come to the resource pickup at HCPA. Please call HCPA on Monday at 651-209-8002 to let us know.

Hello parents and families! We are working with our teachers and team to coordinate the distribution of K-5 E-Learning materials. This includes issuing Chromebooks for all students in 3rd – 5th grade. The materials will include all the resources you need for your students to continue learning at home with their teachers in the event of a COVID-19 school closure.

COVID-19 Meal Access PlanPosted by Tony Hang on 3/18/2020 8:00:00 AM
Hmong College Prep Academy will be offering a week worth of meals to all enrolled families. We will be distributing the food once a week at school. For the week of March 16-20, 2020, parents, guardians and or students can pick up meals today Wednesday, March 18, 2020, at DOOR B anytime between 10AM – 12PM. Next week’s pick-up is on Monday, March 23, 2020, at the same time. After next week, we go on Spring Break so there’s no meal distribution. When we come back from Spring Break, we will send another communication should the school continue to be close.
Inform your parents of the following:
1. Only the parents, guardians or student can pick-up meals
2. Must park on the curbside of DOOR B and staff will bring out meals in bags to the parents
3. Parents must notify the school if they want to participate or discontinue meal pick-up so the kitchen can better plan for meal
4. Pick-up time is any time from 10:00AM – 12:00PM on 3/18/2020 or 3/23/2020. Further information will come for future pick-up dates
