WAPS to offer child care, student meals during closure

On Monday, district leadership met with some staff members to begin planning to prepare distance learning plans in case Gov. Tim Walz orders a longer school closure. 

As we previously announced, Winona Area Public Schools will be closed from March 16-27 to work on these plans. 

However, we are committed to arranging services for members in our community who require them during this challenging time. 

Beginning Wednesday, March 18, we will be providing student meals at nine locations around Winona and the surrounding areas. We will also be providing free child care for the children of emergency workers. 

The links to all of these forms are below. If you need assistance in filling them out, please call 507-494-1500 or stop in the district office, 903 Gilmore Ave., between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. 

Please keep in mind that we are still in the process of developing our strategy, and these plans are subject to change. We will do our best to keep you updated throughout the process. Your patience, understanding and support is appreciated during this challenging time.
