With the change in weather, some have started using the hallways for walking. Times are after 3:30 p.m. Many times, the building is open until 7:30 p.m. due to activities held in the early evening. Just a reminder to call in if you plan to continue your walking schedule for another year and already have your walking pass from a prior year. If you are new to the program, contact this office for more information and to get a walking pass. Walkers can come on days when school is in session but if there would be an early out, walking is canceled.

The Community Education office is located in Room 109 of the Sleepy Eye High School. School day hours are generally 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Since staff is part-time, they may not always be in the building. You can call and leave a message on voice mail, 507-794-7873, and we will get back to you with more information. Another option is to e-mail staff with questions and to sign-up. Addresses are on the school website.
