As winter is upon us, we wanted to post our winter weather policy.

Weather Policy: MCA follows the Winona Area Public school schedule, if WAPS school or after school activities are cancelled MCA will not hold classes, private lessons may be held dependent upon instructor and student agreement. One snow day is built into each session and is not required to be made up, but we make every effort to, depending on instructor and space availability. Make-ups will be communicated as soon as possible after the cancellation. We try when possible to email a notice to students in addition to posting it on our Facebook Page. In the event of instructor illness or other cancellation, MCA will communicate with students and families a makeup plan as soon as possible, or in some cases, a credit may be added to an account. We strive to answer all inquiries made during the workweek within 24-hours. All messages/emails left over the weekend or during a weather emergency will be answered the next business day. Our friendly office staff can be contacted at (507) 453-5500.

Winona Radio does a good job of listing school closures. If you see Winona Area Public Schools on the list and you have not received, but you are currently registered for a class that meets that day, please please drop us an email at: to ensure we have your correct contact information or check your Junk folder.

*Programs in partnership with the Winona YMCA will follow the YMCA policy and communications.
