PreK-4 (Lower Campus) Distance Learning Family Update Week of May 11-15, 2020

Principal Message from Mr. B. 

Greetings Families!


With the Governor’s executive order to close all school sites for the rest of the school year to limit the spread of COVID-19, there are many personal items left in our buildings.


Saint Paul Public Schools has developed a plan to return student’s personal belongings that were left at school before the closure in a streamlined manner while following social distancing guidelines. 


Student belongings that were left in lockers, cubbies, desks, as well as medications and supplies left in the Health Office, will be cleaned out by staff, bagged, labeled and assembled for pickup. No students or families will be allowed in school buildings to retrieve personal items.


Below is the following schedule for pickup at Farnsworth Aerospace PreK-4. If parents are not able to make their scheduled date, please call Farnsworth Aerospace PreK-4 at 651-293-8675 and leave a message. Our staff will return your call as soon as possible.

We will have a station along Mendota St. between Ivy and Hyacinth.  You should drive your car southbound on Mendota and stop right before the Farnsworth parking lot.  Please see the attached map below for specific details. I ask that families stay in their vehicle, follow the signs for how to receive your student’s personal items.  


Farnsworth Pickup  


If you walk up to Farnsworth Aerospace PreK-4, please look for signs and a check-in table. Please follow social distancing guidelines, by allowing at least six feet of space between others when waiting in line.


I appreciate your patience and understanding over the last couple of months. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at 651-293-8675 or email me at
