New Ulm Public Schools will reopen this fall with in-person learning for all. Based on current data from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and in conversations with Public Health, New Ulm schools will be allowed to conduct in-person learning for all students. In a message to district parents, Superintendent Jeff Bertrang said the school will start with all students K-12 attending in-person. Distance learning remains an option for families. The first week will be focused on teaching students new safety protocols in each building, distributing technology to students in grades 5-12, reviewing school expectations and establishing relationships.
