Welcome to Howard Lake - Waverly - Winsted Public Schools!


HLWW Food Service will be offering an additional way for students in Grades 7-12, to receive meals for the days they are not in school (due to hybrid learning).  We will start this new opportunity on Tuesday September 29th, 2020. Meals will still be available for pick up if you prefer.

Hybrid students will have the option to pick up meals at the end of the day on Tuesday or Friday for the days they will be at home. One breakfast and one lunch can be requested for each scheduled distance learning day.

All meals will be cold, such as salads, sandwiches and wraps. All meals will include milk.

Please sign up by 8:00am THE DAY THE MEALS WILL BE TAKEN HOME using this form:

At this time, meals are FREE for all students until further notice.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Michelle Johnson at 320-543-4615 or

The USDA recently announced an extension of the Summer Food Service Program. What this means is that starting Monday, September 21st, ALL students will be able to eat breakfast and lunch for FREE until further notice, possibly until December 31st, 2020. This includes meals that are picked up for students who are on distance learning.

Please continue to fill out the free and reduced meal application. When funding runs out, we will need to switch back to National School Lunch Program guidelines, and those that qualify will need to have a current, approved application to receive their meals for free.

If your student purchases any a la carte items, please be sure there are funds available in their account for them to do so, as these will still be available (depending on the age and location of your student these items vary).

At the HLWW School Board Meeting on August 17, the school board approved the plan we will use to start the 2020-21 school year on September 8, 2020.  The plan was first recommended by our newly formed COVID-19 Council made up of parents, staff members, administration, and school board members, along with guidance from both Wright and McLeod County Health.

Based on the county COVID-19 case numbers, the school board approved the following model:

Pre-K through Grade 6 – In-person learning will be used.  Students will come to school every day (Pre-K will follow the schedule as set forth by community education).

Grades 7-12 – Hybrid learning will be used.  Students will come to school either two or three days each week, depending upon the calendar schedule, and will do distance learning on the days they are not in school.

The Middle and High School administration is working on the logistics of the Grade 7-12, A/B schedule and calendar.  They will be getting this information to students and parents within the coming weeks.  Please watch for an email notification as to the structure of this schedule.

Also, please refer to our school website for details about our plans

Please remember to communicate if you choose to transport your children to /from school, to Nicole McKee at or 320-543-4650.

Lastly, please note our start and dismissal times for this school year:

               Elementary – 7:55 a.m. start; 2:30 p.m. dismissal (please do not drop students before 7:40 a.m.)

               MS/HS – 8:45 a.m. start; 3:20 p.m. dismissal (please do not drop students before 8:30 a.m.)

We want to thank all of our students, parents, and staff members for their continued support of HLWW Public Schools as we work through this planning in order to open our schools safely.
