It is with a heavy heart that we are sharing with you the decision of closing the school year SPOT programs at Osseo Middle School and Maple Grove Middle School starting Fall of 2020. With the COVID-19 school closing, diminishing participation, and lost revenue that the Community Education department experienced, we are unable to continue to offer this program to our families.
Over the last five years, we have been part of your families, created some wonderful new experiences, and watched your children grow into dedicated scholars and community members. Staff have focused on providing a safe environment for your students, nurturing lifelong relationships, and creating meaningful programming that impacts the families we serve.
Please understand that this was a very hard decision to make as this affects many families and staff. Thank you for letting us be a part of your family.
We know with the elimination of the SPOT program, this may create some new challenges for you and your family. Hopefully with this advanced notice, you can begin to make alternative arrangements for the 2020-2021 School Year.
Moving forward we will continue to offer a summer program for Middle School students along with Excursion Days on various non-school days. Please call our business office at 763-585-7281 or email CECares@District279.org with any questions.
