    Communications and Translations
    SPPS is committed to regular communications with families and the community. The fall reopening plan website, spps.org/reopen2020, is the central location for information. In addition to updating this website, SPPS will send updates via email, text and robocall as needed. To learn more about SPPS Distance Learning, visit spps.org/distancelearning


    Help with Distance Learning and Language Services
    If families need help in any language, the first place for families to call is their child’s school. Schools will have support teams that include bilingual staff. In cases where schools do not have a bilingual staff member available, staff will use language line to help you.


    Parent Help Line
    If families need assistance with Distance Learning, they can also contact the Office of Family Engagement at 651-767-8347 or email family.engagement@spps.org. If phones are busy and families have to leave a message, staff will do their best to respond within one business day.
