Dear Manitou Springs Middle School Families,
COVID Intake Form
If your student has been exposed to a close contact with COVID 19, diagnosed with COVID 19, or are in the process of being tested for COVID 19 and/or having symptoms, or someone in your household is being tested or suspected of having COVID 19, please fill out the attached COVID intake form and keep them home until you hear further direction from a member of the district’s COVID Response Team. The form is also available on the main page of the district website by clicking on the green box titled ‘MSSD COVID Intake Form’.
Google Meet schedule for at home students
At the beginning of class they will log into the Google Meet and receive instructions from their teacher.
Teachers will take attendance for all students at the beginning of each class.
Parents, please email or call the office if you need to excuse your student.
Requesting schedule changes (a message from Ms. Ward, our counselor)
If you are requesting a schedule change please submit only one request by going to Manitou Middle School website → Department tab → Counselor Corner → Submit Request. This is how Ms. Ward will be completing schedule changes. Please keep in mind there is no guarantee the schedule change will be made. After Ms. Ward has addressed each request, a follow up email will be sent. Click here to quickly go to Ms. Ward's Counselor Corner form!
Our teachers are taking on a new challenge: providing instruction to at home students and in person students simultaneously. We appreciate your understanding as our school learns how to navigate in this model. Here are some guidelines for what students can expect:
There will be a whole group introduction for at home students and in person students.
After the introduction, lessons will look different depending on each teacher’s lesson plan.
At home students will have opportunities to engage with their peers during each class.
8th grade families: It's that time of year again! Email Ms. Fodrie (firstname.lastname@example.org) your baby picture with the student's name listed by Friday, February 12th to make sure it's included.
ALL families: Haven't bought this year's yearbook yet? No problem! Go to MySchoolBucks to purchase today! If you have any pictures of COVID-safe activities with students or at home learning, please email them to Ms. Fodrie (email@example.com) for consideration.
