FAQs

Q: How will I know if there is Qué Tal on mornings or afternoons when there is bad weather?
A: During severe weather, Qué Tal will close whenever the Wayzata School District issues a school closure.  Morning classes will be cancelled on any late start days and afternoon classes will be cancelled on early closure days.

Q: Who should I notify if my child is sick or has an appointment or will not be in class?
A: Please email the Office Manager (office@quetalwayzata.org) and your child’s teacher on the day of the absence before 1:00 pm. You will receive a short response email from the Office Manager which will let you know your email has been received. If you do not receive this confirmation email, please call the office at 763-208-3231.
A $10 Absence Confirmation Fee will be charged if we need to contact you to locate your child.

Q: What does Qué Tal mean?

Q: What about 2nd graders and up, can they enroll?

Q: Are there scholarships available?
A: Yes, Qué Tal does offer scholarships based on certain requirements.  Please call the office at (763) 208-3231 for more information.

Q: I have a flexible spending account. Can I name Qué Tal as the Dependent Care Organization?
A: Que Tal is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and not a daycare center. We offer before- and after-school Spanish classes, as well as an after-class program in the afternoon to support parents needing a later pick up time. As our classes are educational, it is our understanding that the tuition is not considered a dependent care expense while the after class program fee may be considered a dependent care expense. We recommend checking with your accountant and/or benefits administrator to make a final determination.

Q: I have other questions about your program.  Where can I find more information?
A: Please take a look at our Qué Tal Parent Handbook 2016-17

If you have other questions not answered in the Parent Handbook, please give our office a call at (763) 208-3231 between the hours of 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday-Thursday.
