  • Winter/Spring Catalog

    Winter/Spring Registration is Now Open

    Registration for the Winter/Spring classes is now open. You can register online at www.westonkace.org or by calling 952.491.8040.

    Due to budget restraints and possible changes because of COVID-19, we will not be producing a print catalog for the Winter/Spring seasons. The catalog is available in digital format online for you to preview click here or on the photo to view the catalog. There is no penalty to register if a program cancels due to changing COVID-19 conditions.
    We look forward to seeing you soon in a virtual or in person program when possible!

    UPDATE: Governor Walz' Executive Order 20-103 will allow us to move forward with Youth Sports programs beginning January 4; please feel free to enroll your child in open programs including basketball, Learn to Skate, archery, Tae Kwon Do and wrestling, all of which start up in January!
     
    We ask that participants complete a self-check for wellness prior to attending on site programs. Social distancing policies and procedures will be followed. Enrichment programs such as CPR, Chess, arts and/or craft programs, and cooking classes are also currently taking registrations.

  • Heroes

    Childcare Heroes Work Here

    In the fall 2020 catalog, we are celebrating and sharing our gratitude to our Adventure Club childcare workers. They have been providing services for children and their families since the COVID-19 pandemic began. If you would like to help us thank our childcare heroes, we encourage you and/or your child to write them a personalized letter or share a story letting them know how much they mean to you and your family.

    Letters can be mailed to the Westonka Community Education office or emailed to communityed@westonka.k12.mn.us. We will be sharing these stories via our social media throughout the school year.

    Thanks for supporting our childcare heroes!

    How we are Keeping You Safe

    Your health is a top priority of Westonka Community Education and the Westonka Public Schools. We wanted to share some of the measures we're taking in our buildings to help keep you safe.

    In order to provide you with safe, quality classes and programs, our staff and instructors will be wearing masks and washing their hands frequently. All students and visitors will be asked to wear a face-covering upon entering our facilities. Hand sanitizer is available throughout our buildings. Hallways and stairwells are clearly marked as one-way traffic.

    Additionally, we have taken the following measures:

    • Promoting social distancing throughout our buildings and classrooms
    • Installing plexiglass shields at front desk, reception areas
    • Reducing the number of students in classes and expanding our selection of virtual classes
    • Implementing additional sanitation processes to disinfect all rooms and surfaces
    • Requiring all staff, students and visitors to perform a self-screening prior to leaving their home.

    Please note that these guidelines will continue to be updated as we learn more from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE). Visit the District website for more information on the Westonka School Districts COVID-19 Safe Learning Plan.
