Dear HOPE families,

As the Minnesota Department of Education works closely with the Minnesota Department of Health to plan for the 2020-21 school year, we want to hear from families about their experience with the distance learning this spring.

This feedback is extremely valuable to us. This information will allow us to help families as they balance the responsibilities of work and family, while also supporting student learning.

The survey is available here in English, Hmoob, Spanish, and Somali.

Thank you in advance for your response. The survey will close on June 30th.


Dear HOPE Families and Staff,

The past week’s events have been hard on all of us.  The death of George Floyd has been one filled with high emotions from sadness to anger.  All human life is important.  We must remember that there is only one race, and that is the human race.

The last few months have not been easy with the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our students have had a challenging time, and now with this latest event, our students may be struggling to understand all these events.  What makes this more challenging is that our children are not in school, and having to process all this without the support and resources of HOPE staff may be difficult for them.

We want you to know we are here for you.  HOPE Community Academy is committed to equity and opportunity for all. We will continue our work to support our families, students, and staff to create an environment where all voices can be heard. At HOPE, we do not tolerate violence and discrimination.  Let us remember the important work that we need to do to promote equality and equity for all.

Please continue to be safe and be kind to each other.

Maychy Vu
Executive Director
