Home of the Mavericks!

Martin County West, a consolidated district comprised of the former
Sherburn-Dunnell, Trimont and Welcome School Districts
established in 1988.
Black and Blue -- Minnesota Rouser


Work Has Begun

The work at Sherburn Elementary, Trimont Elementary, and MCW Jr/Sr High has begun. Contractors have been working behind the scenes to get ready for the big projects this summer. You may have noticed that construction trailers are now parked at both elementary schools for the contractors and storage of materials.
The following are some reminders to keep in mind for the upcoming summer months:
  • The playgrounds at both elementary schools will not be safe to be used by children during the summer months. There will be heavy equipment and busy construction people working in and around the school sites. To keep our students safe, please find an alternate place to play for the summer.
  • The District office, Sherburn Elementary office, Trimont Elementary office, and Community Education will be moving to the Jr/Sr High School for the summer. These offices will be open during their regularly scheduled days/hours and phone numbers are supposed to transfer. If you are unable to reach any of these offices by phone, please feel free to email the person you are trying to contact. Email addresses can be found on the District homepage under the Staff Directory tab.
  • Registration this summer for K-12 students in all buildings will be held at MCW Jr/Sr High in August.
  • The swimming pool will be closed on May 1, so work can begin in the pool and locker room areas. The pool will reopen after school begins in the fall.
