Middle School Weekly Update

Masconomet Middle School

From the Principal's Desk

October 23, 2020

Dear Masco Middle Families,

I have a few updates as we close out this first week of the hybrid learning model. I hope that the week of classes went well for your child(ren) and that they adjusted to the new schedule. If you or your child have any questions about classes, please do not hesitate to reach out to the teacher. School counselors also serve as a helpful resource for students and parents, guardians or caregivers.

Please take note of the following information:

  • This week marked the midpoint of the first trimester. If you have not logged into PowerSchool lately to check your child’s progress, please do so now. Please click here for instructions on how to log in and how to view grades in PowerSchool.

  • As we have stated, do not send your child to school if they are experiencing any cold-like, flu, or COVID-19 symptoms.

  • You may still register your child for Excels activities through next week. Registration closes on Friday, October 30, although activities begin next week. Please see this week’s earlier Excels email for further information.

  • Monday is a cohort B day in the building.

  • In honor of Veteran’s Day on Wednesday, November 11, school is not in session. When we return to school on November 12 it will be a Cohort B day since Tuesday, November 10 is a Cohort A day.

  • School closes at 11:15 am on Wednesday, November 25, for the Thanksgiving recess and will reopen on Monday, November 30.

It was great to see students back in the building this week! Although school looks much different this year, I appreciate the energy and enthusiasm that students bring with them to in-person learning.

Have a good weekend!

Take care and stay safe,

Phil McManus
