COVID-19 Closure Message 3-15-20

Waseca Public Schools will be closed for all students until Monday, March 30th at the earliest.  There will be no SAC (Jays Nest) tomorrow for anyone.  


We will open SAC on Tuesday to children of Emergency Workers only.  The list of emergency workers include the following if they are residents of Waseca School District: home care workers, personal care assistants, ambulance/emergency workers, direct care and treatment workers, fire fighters, police, personnel providing correctional services, essential court personnel, State and local public health agency employees, county financial eligibility, county case managers and any county staff in emergency management or health and human services.  If you fall into one of these areas, we will need to see either a name tag from your work or a letter from your employer. 


We will meet tomorrow with our food service staff to begin a food service feeding program on Tuesday. 


All staff have received specific instructions by email and should check their school email immediately, if they have not already done so.  Instructional staff will be ready to begin enhanced flexible learning as outlined by the MDE on Monday, March 30th.  


Please do not come to school or allow your child to come to school until you receive further instructions.  We will send additional information tomorrow regarding child care for emergency workers and our food service feeding program. You will receive more information next week as to how we will get materials and devices to students who do not have them.


There are still many questions like what will happen with ACT and/or AP exams.  There are others as well. If you have a question, please contact your child’s school tomorrow between the hours of 7:30am and Noon.  We will have office staff available to direct your questions to someone who can help. Office staff and teachers will return to work on Thursday.  


This is what we believe we know as of now.  As you are aware, this is a very fluid situation and information may change rapidly.  Please watch our website, Facebook and Twitter accounts for smaller updates. We will contact you directly for more significant updates. 


Thank you for your support and understanding during these unprecedented times.
