Wayzata Public Schools release via email Dec. 5, 2018:
Dear Parents and Guardians,
In the event of inclement weather, the superintendent may close school, delay the start of school or dismiss school early. If Wayzata Public Schools closes or has a late start, phone calls, email and SMS text messages (message and data rates may apply) will be sent to all families using the District parent notification system. To ensure that we have accurate contact information, please update Skyward Family Access.
Announcements will also be posted on the district website at www.wayzataschools.org, District Facebook and Twitter, 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, Adult Basic Education classes, 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.

Baby and family story times at the library provide opportunities for caregivers and children to learn and practice five early literacy activities – talking, singing, reading, writing and playing – easy and fun ways to prepare your children to become readers and successful learners!You may be doing many of these things already.

Information Submitted by the Wayzata Historical Society
The Wayzata Historical Society invites you to hear from journalist, author, and longtime Wayzata resident Bette Hammel as we support her latest book signing on December 5th.
In a reading from her new memoir, A Lifetime of Luck and Pluck, Hammel will relate her 2016 essay “My Car Is Gone” with others ranging from her story covering the 1956 marriage of Grace Kelly to the Prince of Monaco to earlier experiences such as working in the Betty Crocker kitchens and becoming a radio broadcaster in Indiana and New York.
Returning home to Minnesota, she began a career in the advertising agency business. Her lucky day, she says, was meeting and marrying Richard Hammel, co-founder of HGA Architects & Engineers.
After his sudden death in 1986, she began writing about architecture for various magazines, and later became author of four books including Legendary Homes of Lake Minnetonka. She describes her new memoir as essays written in an “easybreezy” style. A Lifetime of Luck and Pluck, published by Nodin Press, will be available at all Twin City bookstores and priced at $16.95.
Your Wayzata Girls Basketball team opened with a solid win over Prior Lake last night. Sophomore guard Jenna Johnson led the Trojans with 22 points, followed by Junior forward Annika Stewart with 16 points.
Some of you have heard of the Sleep Out movement, a 23-year tradition where families, businesses, faith communities, schools and scout troops sleep out or sleep in to raise awareness and funds to prevent homelessness. Last year, one in five of the families Interfaith worked with experienced homelessness. Here are five ways you can help!
Host a sleep out or hold a Bedless Night, the indoor alternative to sleeping outdoors. You can teach children and learn for yourself what some of your neighbors experience when they lose their housing. iocp.org/sleepout
Donate directly to the Sleep Out. Your donation of $100 or more will be doubled by a generous donor. iocp.org/donate
Save some last-minute holiday shopping for Dec. 14! All day, generous local businesses will donate portions of their sales to help prevent homelessness through the Sleep Out. iocp.org/swap
Volunteer at Interfaith Outreach – once or regularly. Interfaith Outreach has year-round opportunities for you and your family to make a lasting impact together, either on-site or on your own at a time and place convenient for you. iocp.org/volunteer
Donate quality items from your closet and home to Resale Select. When you do, everyone wins, because all proceeds support Interfaith Outreach and the families we serve. iocp.org/donategoods
Thank you! Together, you are helping to change lives, one day at a time.
