Join us for community meetings for immigrant and refugee families

MPS is committed to being a safe haven for everyone. We know that recent current events have raised questions for some immigrant and refugee families. We want to lend support wherever possible. Together with our community partners, we’re hosting two upcoming meetings to answer questions and connect families with resources both in our schools and in the community:

  • Wednesday, March 1, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at South High School, 3131 S. 19th Ave., Minneapolis
  • Saturday, March 4, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at Davis Service Center, 1250 W. Broadway Ave., Minneapolis

We are partnering with the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR MN), NAVIGATE and the Somali American Parent Association (SAPA) to provide information about changing policies, legal resources and social and emotional supports available. We will also have experts available to provide information on helping children cope with stress and anxiety.

If you have questions about the meetings, please feel free to contact our Office of Family and Community Engagement at 612.668.0198 or osfce@mpls.k12.mn.us.
