MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — Mankato Area Public Schools is looking for volunteers to help with its COVID-19 emergency response activities.
Volunteers who sign up and are approved will help deliver lunches, help in the classroom during lunch and assist with arrival and dismissal. There are no academic volunteers this year, as rooms are typically at 50% capacity with hybrid learning and social distancing being practiced.
“We obviously have all these extra activities that we don’t normally have in a normal school year. It’s just important that we have all the hands and all the support that we can get as far as helping the students getting used to these new activities,” explained Alison Troldahl, family and community engagement coordinator at Mankato Area Public Schools.
