Middle School Test Calendar:  Here is a screenshot of the Middle School Test Calendar for next week (September 14-18).  Please note that test dates are subject to change, and any changes will be posted on your child's Google Classroom pages.

 

Face Masks and Buffs:  Please make sure your child's face mask or buff is tight and secure.  The buffs tend to stretch out over time, and it's difficult for them to remain in place where they cover both the nose and mouth.

 

ID Cards:  Please make sure your child has his/her ID card for the cafeteria.  The cafeteria will no longer accept just the number; the actual card needs to be used.  Replacement cards are $5.

 

Attendance:  Should your student be out a day for not feeling well or for any other reason, please email Mrs. Erwin (nerwin@ums-wright.org) the day that the student is out.  Absences for non-COVID reasons or while awaiting COVID-19 test results are considered regular absences, and therefore students should make contact with the appropriate teacher(s) to determine what was missed. They will not log into class virtually unless the illness / results require the student to quarantine or isolate.

 

Reminder about Absences:  Students are only enrolled in Pathway 2 if they have been isolated / quarantined.   Only students enrolled in Pathway 2 or 3 will attend class virtually.  Absences for non-COVID reasons or while awaiting COVID-19 test results are considered regular absences, and therefore students should make contact with the appropriate teacher(s) to determine what was missed. They will not log into class virtually unless the illness / results require the student to quarantine or isolate.  Pathway 3 students in grades 5-12 who have not picked up materials from the guardhouse need to do so. All materials are labeled with student’s first and last names.  Questions about Pathway 2, Pathway 3, or Regular Absences can be sent to our Curriculum and Innovation Team (Dr. Patricia Boehm, Mrs. Bre Stricklin, or Mrs. Donna Lamberti).

Items being dropped off:  ONLY essential items (lunch and laptops) are to be dropped off at school. These items are to be left at the guard house. Leaving non-essential items at home one day can result in a learning lesson for the next day. We are trying to limit the number of visitors we have on campus each day due to COVID-19 restrictions, and we need your help as we strive to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff.

 

Please make sure your child has earbuds/headphones every day.  In addition, make sure your child's laptop is charged before arriving at school.
