Meals for kids during school closure

During the district’s long-term closure, Nutrition Services is providing meals for children under the age of 19 who need them. Meals for the week are distributed on Mondays and Wednesdays at Clover Ridge Elementary and Riverview Terrace. More details can be found HERE.

This is a difficult time for everyone, but it’s also a time of increased economic insecurity. If there has been a change in your family’s income, there are resources available to help support you. Please visit our ECCS strong page for more information. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact the office.

Donations welcome to district’s Angel Fund

A significant portion of the funding provided to support our meal program comes from private donations to the district’s Angel Fund. Donations can be made online HERE. Or they can be sent to the Nutrition Services Department, Attn: Julie Eklund, 11 Peavey Rd, Chaska, 55318. Parents who wish to donate funds that are currently in their child’s school lunch account, should also contact Julie Eklund at Questions? Contact Julie at 952-556-6152.

Distance Learning: reporting your child’s absence & attendance

As with a “normal” school day, the expectation remains that all students attend school via distance learning on a daily basis. This does not mean that a school day in your house looks like it would at school; you know best the timeframe that works for your student(s) and family. If your child is unable to participate on a given day due to illness or other family reasons, we ask that you notify the school in the same way you would for an absence from school. To communicate your child’s attendance and participation in distance learning throughout the day, please follow these procedures.

  • Kindergarten – parents should have received an email communicating the attendance procedure for kindergarten students. · Grade 1-12 students – Guidance for using the attendance system is available HERE.
  • As a reminder, parents must call in their students if they don’t “attend” on a specific day. If you do not report your child absent, you will receive a follow-up call from your child’s school.
