Back To School

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! 

White Bear Lake Area Schools will be offering a Hybrid Learning Model for all students K-12+. A Distance Learning Model will also be available for all families who choose that as an option. Regardless of which learning model a family chooses for its student(s), we are committed to providing an engaging, equitable and quality learning experience for each student.

Specific plans regarding transportation, health and safety guidelines and the learning models are outlined in the Fall 2020 Return to School Guide.
