Information for College Representatives

ANNOUNCEMENT: Minneapolis Public Schools educators are officially on strike beginning March 8th which would will likely impact MPS fair sites. 

Due to these circumstances, the following fair(s) have been canceled:

  • Wednesday, March 9 | FAIR School
  • Monday, March 14 | Patrick Henry High School
  • Thursday, March 17 | Washburn High School

We will continue to be in communication with site coordinators and will try to give you as much notice of any changes to the MnACC Spring College Fairs circuit.

Currently, we're working with FAIR and Washburn to reschedule the canceled fairs to Thursday, April 14th. Please update your calendars accordingly. This plan is tentative, as we are not sure how long the strike will last and they may not be able to accommodate a fair until the fall due to loss of instructional time.

FAIR SET UP / DAY OF CONTACT INFO

Set up begins 30 minutes prior to each fair start time. If you will be late due to events not within your control, please contact the MnACC Programming Committee at programming@mnacc.org.

COVID-19 AND COMMUNITY HEALTH

All college reps are required to wear a mask at all times during the event. Face coverings must be worn securely over the nose. We ask anyone who is feeling unwell to not attend. Please contact Tyler Haaland at 605-277-5727 or Nawang Palkit at 218-576-6176 to let us know if you cannot attend.

Tables will be set up in accordance with social distancing guidelines. Space considerations have been made to limit student “hang out” space for socializing.

We will continue to monitor our ability to gather safely for these events. Our ability to offer these fairs is subject to change based on new information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. We will do our best to communicate any changes to you as soon as we are able.
