Due to Emergency Executive Order 20-02 issued by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, WEM School is closed from March 16 through March 27, 2020. No school activities, classes, or formal e-learning will occur during this closure. These two weeks are for teachers and administrators to prepare for distance learning.
Distance learning, as ordered by the governor, will take place from March 30 through May 4, 2020. Please be aware, the May 4 ending date is subject to change.
We are sharing some at-home learning resources below and on Facebook.Please be assured WEM administration is crafting ongoing plans that will be shared as soon as they are finalized. Check back here and follow our Facebook page for updates. Thank you for your patience.
According to Executive Order 20-02 (#8) schools are expected to provide meals to their students. WEM is pleased to announce we will be providing breakfast and lunch to all students in need (age 18 and under) FREE of charge starting Wednesday, March 18 and continuing indefinitely during the school closure. You do NOT need to be approved for free/reduced meals and do NOT need to be enrolled in our district--private school/charter school.
Meals will be a “grab and go” arrangement and can be picked up from 11:00-12:30 Monday through Friday at each district building (Morristown Middle School, Waterville Elementary and the Elysian School). The pick-up of meals will be at the main entrances of each building with Waterville Elementary and the High School sharing the location at the elementary entrance. If you can't get to the drop-off locations, please request delivery on the form. Enter your phone number where indicated. You will be contacted by someone from the school to make arrangements.
While you don’t need to pre-order meals, please complete the form and indicate your interest in meal pick-up or delivery for our planning purposes.
