Martin County West School offices are now open with regular hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.


Activity/sports forms can be picked up at the high school’s main entrance this week. When the forms are completed they may be dropped off at the same location.

Some other sports-related changes at Martin County West School: All physicals have been given a one-year extension. If your student was due for a physical this year, you may skip this year.

Sports physicals will still be needed for all seventh-graders and anyone else who has not participated in the past.

Football and volleyball practice seasons will be considered “non-competitive” seasons by the Minnesota State High School League. There are no fees for the “practice seasons” for volleyball and football. The normal volleyball and football fees will apply if there is a competitive season in the spring.
