From the Principal:

Dear Parents,


Happy November to all of our Middle School families. Our students, staff and families are persevering and engaging in a renewed school experience. We continue to navigate best educational practices and offer students a captivating and rigorous school experience.

We want to remind families of a few things:


There are still many families that have not signed off on required forms – this included the Chromebook permission form; the digital citizenship agreement; and the district code of conduct. If you have not, please do so as soon as possible. These form need to be signed in order for students to use district owned Chromebooks. If families need additional, copies please contact the Middle School main office.


Students may attend 10th period for additional academic support. Late buses will take students home throughout Williamson. There is also an option to stay for support for students who walk or get picked up. We encourage students to take an active role in their education.


The end of the 1st marking period is November 10th. We encourage students to focus on quality work completion. Please check your child’s Schoology account to review student progress. We will not be sending report cards home at the end of the first marking period – their grades are available in the parent portal. Please contact us if you do not have an account. For those students needing parent – teacher conferences you will be contacted (or contact us if you have any concerns).


Thank you for your continued support.

From the Health Office:

The 2022 – 2023 Flu Season is upon us. Here is some information you may need to know to help you and your family get through it without complications.


Influenza (flu) can cause mild to severe illness. Flu is different from a cold. Flu usually comes on suddenly. Symptoms include the following:


Fever or feeling feverish/chills

Cough/chest discomfort

Sore Throat

Body aches

Runny or stuffy nose

Headaches

Fatigue (tiredness)


Some people have vomiting or diarrhea, more common in children than adults.


Best way to prevent the flu? Get a yearly flu vaccine and keep your hands clean. If you think you have the flu, see your doctor. Take prescribed medication (usually antivirals); this will make the illness milder and shorten the time you are sick. Best if medication is started within 48 hours of getting sick. Please stay home; you are most contagious in the first 3 to 4 days, and please remember to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.


Please contact your Healthcare Provider if you have any questions or concerns.


Please feel free to call the Middle School Health Office if you have any questions or concerns at 315-589-9665 ext. 3520.
