January 5, 2022
Dear Families and Community,
It's great to have everyone back from winter break. The last day of Semester 1 is Thursday, January 20, 2022. We are currently working hard to help all students make up work, finish up assessments, and wrap up the first semester. Remember that you can use ParentVue to check on your student's grades and work completion. We want all of our students to be successful, so if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to teachers through email or give them a call.

Safety and Covid:
With the new surge in positive covid cases, it is imperative that we tighten up our safety procedures inside and outside or schools.
At WMMS, we are ensuring that there is time for handwashing opportunities during the school day and that all students use sanitizer when entering each classroom and before lunch. We took time last week to reteach proper mask-wearing, remind students about social distancing and ensure their student desks are as far apart as physically possible in the classroom. We will continue to be vigilant and put safety first so we can keep our staff and students at school.
We appreciate your support by ensuring your student wears a mask to school that fits properly around their mouth and nose and reminding them to keep their mask on at all times.
