As part of the #BeTheLightMN initiative that honors students across the state, Fridley Public Schools will turn on its high school stadium lights at Bob O'Neill field, beginning at 8:00 PM to honor all students who are helping keep each other and our community healthy by following our governor’s social distance directive. To honor the Class of 2020, the lights will stay on for 20 minutes and 20 seconds. We will Be The Light  every night this week through Friday, April 10 and will continue to honor our seniors every Monday night for the duration of the school closure. 

If you choose to see the lights in person, please follow the social distancing requirements.  We ask that you stay in your car, maintain a 6 feet distance from other people, and leave as soon as the lights are dimmed to avoid gathering. 

There are no words to describe how much Fridley staff misses its students. The lights are to remind all of us that we all can be a light for each other and for someone else. So, keep it up!  Be The Light that shines hope, compassion, kindness, caring, and inspiration. And to the Fridley High School Class of 2020, our lights shine for you -  GO TIGERS!

Governor Walz issued an executive order that all public and charter schools will remain closed through May 4. That means that beginning Monday, March 30, Fridley will implement its Distance Learning initiative for students.

Fridley Public Schools teachers and staff have been hard at work finalizing plans for continuity in instruction through Distance Learning, continuation of services (including meals for students, social emotional learning and supports), support for students with special needs, and evaluating the needs of students who may not have access to technology. While modified due to social distancing, our services to Fridley students will still continue.

Information has been sent to parents on how to access distance learning and materials, school meals for their children, and any additional student support services that may be needed. Parents are urged to continue to monitor their emails for classroom and school specific news and updates.  It is important to ensure that parent email addresses are up-to-date to receive this information. You can check the email address you have on file through the Parent Portal. Click here to find a link to the Parent Portal log in page.  If you are still not receiving information, please contact your child's school.

Our district is here and committed to supporting our students and families as best as we can during these challenging times. We wish our students and families continued health and safety and look forward to welcoming them back into our school buildings.
