13 Reasons Resources for Families

On Friday, May 18 Netflix will release the second season of the controversial show “13 Reasons Why.” The content deals with issues of suicide, rape, bullying, drunk driving, and other sensitive topics. We understand that students are curious about these topics and that viewing this show is compelling for many teens and pre-teens.

Helping our Students Through Tragedy

Many students will have questions about the recent tragedy in Texas. It's normal to feel anxious and concerned after high-profile public tragedies, especially in this time of fast-paced, unvetted information. Minneapolis Public Schools does everything it can to keep our schools safe and secure. 

Last Day of School Changed

The Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) Board of Education voted on January 9 to make the last day of school for students Friday, June 8, 2018. This change only impacts student attendance.
