WMMS Weekly Update
Greetings WMMS Families
As the holiday season approaches, I’d like to take this opportunity to share how thankful I am to serve as your principal. It is a privilege and an honor to work with your children and the incredible team of staff members and families that make up WMMS. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving break!
Food Shelf Information
If you need assistance with groceries or personal care items, please remember that our local Friends For Life Food Shelf is available as a resource. Families can order online, or call to reserve a time slot during available hours. You can find more detailed information on their website.
Holiday Gift Assistance
If your family is in need of receiving assistance with gifts this year, please see this flyer for more information.
As we begin taking field trips again, it's important that families remember to pay the yearly activity fee for your child. This can be done through the Parent Portal under Fees-->Optional Payments.
If your family is in need of accessing a scholarship to assist with the fee, please reach out to our school social worker at 952-955-0412. With that being said, we are also accepting donations to this scholarship fund for families who are interested in donating. Donations can be arranged through the middle school office.

What to do if your child is ill
Parents need to be the first line of defense in our Health and Safety protocols. As a reminder parents are expected to perform a daily health screening for their children before sending them to school. If your child is exhibiting any signs or symptoms of illness, the child is expected to remain out of school until his/her symptoms have greatly improved. Please see full details on this page, WM Health and Safety Protocols. Report illnesses to email@example.com or Nurse Kelly @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 952-955-0411
