Erskine, MN – Superintendent Randy Bruer was on ‘Food for Thought’ on Thursday, August 26th to talk about many updates in regards to the upcoming 2021-2022 school year. One major talking point was what the school’s plan is for returning to face-to-face instruction. Bruer says Win-E-Mac’s plan is to allow students and staff to decide whether they will wear masks and encourage support from classmates for individual’s choices.
Testing for COVID-19 or the Delta Variant will not be required, however if individuals are showing symptoms they are highly encouraged to see a doctor or use a take home test. Free take home tests are given out by the school for immediate diagnosis. Along with new COVID-19 protocol, the Win-E-Mac school has also remodeled several areas.
New staff will also join the Win-E-Mac community. Melinda Anderson will spend half her time teaching High School English and the other half teaching FACS classes. Melissa Smeby is a social worker practitioner working under Northwestern Mental Health Center (NWMH), or Alluma. Jerrid and Katrina Courneya are also new addition to the Win-E-Mac coaching staff. There is also an open house on Wednesday, September 1st from 5 P.M. – 7 P.M.
