Meals and Snacks

An afternoon snack will be provided.


Transportation is not provided to before-school childcare or from after-school childcare.

Groups of Students
Students and staff will be kept in small cohorts that stay together as much as possible throughout programming components and from day to day. 

Any shared building spaces will be cleaned between uses.

Registration for In-Person Learning Model
All families need to re-register, including families with a currently "paused" contract.

Re-register by:

  • Logging into your Eleyo account
  • Selecting the season called "In-Person Learning Model Spring 2021"
  • Choosing your Minneapolis Kids site
  • Completing the contract

There is a new minimum registration requirement. Families must sign up for Monday through Thursday before-school and/or after-school childcare. Friday is optional. Note: this is a requirement to ensure students are grouped together consistently per MN Department of Health guidelines.

Priority will be given to current Minneapolis Kids families and then to currently enrolled Tier 1 families.

Current Minneapolis Kids family is defined as those already enrolled and accepted in the "paused" School Year 2020-21 season.

Families opting to remain in the MPS distance learning model are not eligible for Minneapolis Kids childcare.

Non-School Day Care

Non-school day care will be available during Spring Break 2021, on April 2nd and from April 5th-9th for families who are enrolled in before- and/or after-school care.  Please see the in-person location sheet for information about which sites will be available for non-school day care.  Registration for Spring Break non-school day care will open on March 1st.
