HLWW middle school building gives community education a home


Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted School District will give community education, early childhood and family education, and school-aged care programs a permanent home in the new middle school building.

“Community education programs have been bounced from location to location, where we’ve had extra space,” Superintendent Brad Sellner said. “We are excited to give them a permanent home that is easily accessible.”

The community education, early childhood and family education, and school-aged care offices will be located on the back (east) side of the new middle school building.

“With the new set-up, they will have their own entrance and be close to the back parking lot, requiring less walking to get to the offices,” Sellner noted.
