Circle of Friends Preschool and ECFE Classes Cancelled/Postponed

In response to ongoing executive orders from Governor Walz regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools has made the decision to cancel/postpone Circle of Friends Preschool and ECFE classes during the distance learning period.

The Prior Lake-Savage Early Learning Office is closed at this time.

To our Prior Lake-Savage area family and friends, we will get through this! We eagerly await the time that we can fill the halls with our community’s youngest learners and their families once more.

Additional communications will be forthcoming as information becomes known and plans are solidified. As this situation continues to evolve, please visit https://www.priorlake-savage.k12.mn.us/about-us/coronavirus-virus for regularly updated school district information.

Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones during these trying times.

Take care,
Becca Richardson
Early Learning Coordinator
