  • Superintendent's Update Oct. 13, 2020

    As we head into MEA Break, I want to provide another update on Westonka Public Schools’ COVID-19 Safe Learning Plans. I continue to be impressed by how staff, students and families are working together to limit classroom exposure to COVID-19. I want to thank all of you for diligently following our district’s health and safety protocols and the Minnesota Department of Health Decision Tree to ensure safe learning/working environments for all. As I have said before, hand washing, social distancing, mask wearing and daily symptom screening is our best game plan in staying open during this pandemic. Please read the Borg Report for an update on the community impact of COVID-19 and Westonka's process for learning model decisions.
