Distance Learning Survey 2020

HLWW Parents & Guardians,

HLWW Public Schools is requesting your participation in our end-of-the-year Distance Learning Survey.

The past spring has certainly been a trying time for schools across the state and nation.

Not knowing what the future may bring, we are planning and coordinating a variety of things in regards to Distance Learning and future issues involving COVID-19.

It is our hope that come September 2020, our students and staff will be back at school.  However, we must plan for something like Distance Learning, should we need to use it again.  

In doing so we are looking at a variety of professional development opportunities for our teachers to improve their delivery of Distance Learning models, as well as reviewing our current technology infrastructure and devices, so that we can best meet the needs of our students and families in the future.

We appreciate your time and efforts in completing this survey.  The link can be found below.


Have a great summer!  Take care and stay well!

2020-21 School Day Dismissal Times Will Change

On January 13, 2020, the HLWW School Board approved a change to the end of the school day release times beginning with the 2020-21 school year. 

Beginning in September of 2020, the end of the day release times for HLWW Schools will be as follows:

Elementary Schools (Winsted and Humphrey) – 2:40 p.m.

Middle/High School – 3:00 p.m.

The rationale for this change is as follows:

-  The shortening of the elementary school day and the lengthening the middle/high school day is more in line with Minnesota statute requiring grades K-6 to be in school for 935 hours and grades 7-12 to be in school for 1020 hours in a school year.  Based on our current release times, our elementary students put in many more hours than are required, while middle and high school students, even though they put in more than are required, do not exceed by as much.

-   This change allows coaches who work at the elementary school, time to travel to the Middle/High School for practices, while not having to shorten their teaching day or finding someone to cover their last hour of the day.

-    This change means busses will be parked and ready before the elementary schools release.  Currently some busses are still pulling in as school is released because they need to travel from the Middle/High School which dismissed first.  This will help with efficient loading and supervision.

-  Will create longer classes for Middle/High School students allowing for more teaching and learning.

-   In the 2020-21 school year, HLWW Schools is changing to a new athletic/activity conference.  The schools we will compete against are geographically much closer to HLWW.  This will mean that participants will not need to leave as early for events which allows for us to then extend the school day.

The changes that will need to take place with the bus routes, have begun.  4.0 Transportation will be working closely with school officials to figure out how to reconfigure the routes at the end of the school day to make them as efficient and timely as possible.  They will also be communicating as soon as possible, with St. James and Holy Trinity as to how routes will be coordinated for their students.  Information about your child’s bus route will not be available until August of 2020


Thank you.
