Dear Athlos Family,

As of this afternoon, the verdict has been reached in the trial of a former Minneapolis police officer in the death of George Floyd. The announcement should be made shortly. For some of our students, families and school staff this may be an emotional and challenging time. Through speaking with Brooklyn Park authorities and Hennepin County officials, I believe that we can stay open over the coming days and provide a safe community for our students. Should anything change, I will contact families immediately with further information by our messaging system. I will also post closings on TV stations. Families are absolutely welcome to keep their student(s) home if you are concerned about their safety and their absence(s) will be excused. As always, if your family needs anything please reach out to me by email and we will do what we can to help. We are always here for you.

Message from Principal Geraghty

Dear Athlos Families,

In light of the situation in Brooklyn Center and Brooklyn Park, we are making in-person learning optional today.

Families are welcome to keep their students’ home and participate in distance learning. Buses are attempting to pick up students, but are running in to challenge. Please be patient as they complete morning routes.

School staff are available if families need any assistance. You can contact me at
