Subscribe to our E-Newsletter or read past issues. These e-newsletters are sent monthly a few days after the school board meetings. WEM School Board meetings are scheduled for the fourth Monday of each month with the third Monday as an alternative if the 4th Monday is a holiday. They are live-streamed on Zoom, and recordings are made available afterward. School board work/planning session meetings, when necessary, are scheduled for the second Thursday of each month and are also live-streamed. Consult the school calendar for details. Content of the e-newsletters includes board meeting summaries and accompanying reports as well as photos and highlights of school activities and previews of upcoming events.

WEM will continue to follow the guidance from Governor Walz, the Minnesota Department of Education, the Minnesota Department of Health, and local public health agencies regarding COVID-19 precautions. Student and staff safety is our top priority. Updates will be shared on the district website, social media, and via email.
