Duluth Public Schools announced third-quarter classwork would be available to students Thursday.

The district sent an automated phone call to parents Wednesday night saying materials will be available electronically through Google Classroom or through paper pick-up at designated sites around the district, which can be found at isd709.org/updates/paper-curriculum-packets.

This is a change from last week, when Superintendent Bill Gronseth said told the News Tribune students shouldn't expect classwork until April 13.

The third quarter ends at the end of the week, but the district has extended the quarter through April 10, giving students extra time to complete classwork. Spring break begins Monday, April 6.

On Monday, March 30 families began receiving orientation information about the distance learning process, options available and how to choose, as well as social-emotional support resources.
