Notice of School Closure

Dear Parents and Students,

It is with a heavy heart that I must write this letter. On Tuesday, August 23, 2022, Cross River Charter School’s Board of Directors, under the guidance of the Minnesota Department of Education and our financial advising team, made the decision to move forward and close the school indefinitely. This is due to low student enrollment for the upcoming school year, which in turn has caused budgetary stress. It is no longer a possibility to provide the Cross River Charter students with the quality education they deserve.

It has been an honor to have been affiliated with Cross River Charter School. The wonderful opportunity to provide a learning environment and welcoming place to those of you who have chosen to put your most valuable asset, your child(ren), in our hands has been a dream come true. Though we had the greatest idea, fantastic teachers, an awesome team, and the best students and families, we cannot foresee opening the school in the next couple of weeks.

I am speaking on behalf of all those involved with CRC when I say that we only wish you and your children the very best. Our office will continue to be staffed to assist you with the transfer of all necessary documents for your child(ren). If you need help with finding a school near your home or making the transition to a new school easier, please feel free to contact us.

Again, thank you for giving us the honor of educating your child.

Kind Regards,

Anne Vang-Lo

Executive Director
