Principal's Message

Dear Wakefield Middle School Families,

We can't believe that it is May! We are winding down the final few weeks of the school year, leading into End Of Grade Testing! The students continue to bring joy and energy to our halls and screens.

Below you will find our testing schedule. Please note that due to needing to test Virtual Academy and In-Person in separate testing locations, and sometimes on different days, we will have an expanded schedule. This will also mean that during the testing window, there will be days when students have a modified bell schedule. However, students are still expected to attend a full day of school on days when they are testing (other than on an asynchronous day).

Please also note that our in-person end of year celebrations are also limited due to the importance of maintaining student and staff health and safety. Grade levels will communicate directly with families about the planning and scheduling of celebrations.

Lastly, we will be sending Summer Learning Program invitations to students who qualify early next week. Please be on the lookout for an email and a phone call.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


Alison Cleveland
