Westonka eLearning Days

  • Why eLearning Days?

    eLearning Days are intended to provide continuous learning in the event school has been closed is canceled due to weather.

    When will Westonka hold an eLearning Day?

    • The first weather-related school closure of the 2024-25 school year would be considered a traditional "snow day" for all students and staff. The district will enact the eLearning Day Plan starting with the second weather-related school closing of the year.
    • On the second weather-related closure:
      • secondary students (grades 5-12) will use their district-issued Chromebooks for learning, and
      • primary students (grades K-4) will utilize choice boards to complete assignments.
    • In the event of a weather-related late start or early release, the eLearning Day Plan will not be utilized.

    Student attendance will be based on the completion of the work on eLearning Days.
