​​​​​​Learning Model Schedule

The following is the Waterville-Elysian-Morristown School District’s plan to move to in-person and less restrictive learning models for students as per the announcement by Governor Walz, as well as approval from Public Health and the WEM School Board. The plan is a phased-in approach to in-person learning prioritizing our youngest learners.

Jan. 11: PreK-6th grade students returned to in-person learning, 7-12th Grade continue distance learning. 
Jan. 19: Quarter 2/Semester I for students in 7-12th grade ends. This is a change to the school calendar.
Jan. 20-21: No School for students 7-12th grade: teacher planning days as per Governor Walz, Prek-6th grade continue to attend school in-person.
Jan. 22: No School for students PreK-12th grade, curriculum day as per school calendar
Jan. 25: 7-12th grade students return to in-person learning
Feb. 15: No School for students PreK-12th grade as per school calendar


As students return to in-person instruction, WEM will continue to follow the guidance from MDE & MDH as outlined in the Safe Return to Schools Plan. Student and staff safety is our top priority. WEM Schools will update information on the district website as well as social media as situations change. Parents are encouraged to check their email messages often as details and developments will be forthcoming. Please contact your child's school office if you have any questions.
