Coronavirus and Nonpublic Schools

In an effort to provide the latest and most pertinent information on COVID-19, MISF has collected the following resources and learning opportunities for schools. Schools are encouraged to stay up to date on the latest details and best practices.

If your school has a preparedness or readiness plan developed and are willing to share with other private and independent schools, MISF is willing to serve as a conduit for such documentation and resources; send an email to: [email protected] or call us at 651-297-6716

MISF will stay in contact with local education and health officials and provide updates as necessary.
