District News Headlines

From Superintendent Chace Anderson

It's hard to believe we’re at the end of another school year...and what a year it has been. I would like to take a moment to thank you as a community for all you have done to make a difference in the lives of our students and families.

Congratulations, Class of 2018!

More than 89 percent of the 833 graduates in the Wayzata High School Class of 2018 are making plans to attend two- or four-year colleges or universities.

Work Underway on New Elementary School and Other Referendum Projects

Thanks again to school district voters for supporting three school funding requests on the November 7, 2017 ballot. Now that funding has been approved, planning has begun to address the district’s growth and facilities needs for capacity, safety and academics. Here is a recap of work to be done and timelines for completion.

Emergency Closing Information

The superintendent may close school, delay the start of school or dismiss school early because of extreme weather or other emergency conditions. Phone calls, email and text messages (message and data rates may apply) will be sent to all families using the district’s parent notification system. Announcements will also be posted on the district website at www.wayzataschools.org and shared with the following local media: WCCO Radio 830 AM; WCCO-TV, Channel 4; KSTP-TV, Channel 5; KMSP-TV, Channel 9; and KARE- TV, Channel 11. If an early dismissal is required during the school day, we will follow the designated plan we should have on file for your child/children.

When Wayzata Public Schools is closed all day, this includes Home Base child care, early childhood classes and preschool, community use of facilities, and youth and adult evening events and classes.

If Wayzata Public Schools announces a late start, Home Base will also start late. If school is starting two hours late, then Home Base child care will open at 8:30 a.m. and morning preschool and early childhood programs will be canceled. If an early dismissal is announced after 6:30 a.m., children already at Home Base (or in their classrooms) will need to be picked up within one hour. Home Base suggests you have an emergency plan in place. If an emergency closing is necessary on a Non-School Day, WCCO AM (830) radio will announce the closing as Wayzata Home Base.
