Birchview Elementary students arrive at school Sept. 8. Wayzata School District leaders have laid out a COVID-19 mitigation plan for the start of the new school year. The plan, called Keeping Our Students Safe and In School, focuses on returning students to school for full-time, in-person learning. Under the plan, students and staff for all grades will be required to wear a face covering during the school day, with some exceptions for outdoor activities and indoor physical education at Wayzata High School.
