Message from Mrs. Headrick

The Whitwell Middle School family is so excited to start another school year. We have missed our current students and look forward to meeting our new students. Obviously, this school year will be one that will go down in the history books. As we prepare for the school year to start, I want to assure you that the Marion County School district has fully implemented a strong plan for reentry. As the time draws nearer, more information will be posted about the details of the reentry plan as they pertain to our school. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the beginning of our year, we want you to know that your children's safety and academic success are our top priorities.


Please do not hesitate to reach out to me should you have further questions or concerns. Email is usually the easiest way to contact me, but you are also welcome to call the school. I have included two email addresses that may be used.


Sincerely,

Mrs. Headrick

Drive-Thru Registration #3

Tuesday, Sep. 1st, 8-11am

1 Butterfly Lane

Whitwell, TN

If you were unable to participate in our first two drive-thru registrations, a third one will be held on September 1, 8:00 - 10:00. Enter the school campus using the Valley View Highway entrance and pull to the front of the school. Simply tell school personnel the name and grade level of your student(s) and we will hand the registration packet(s) to you. There is no need to exit your car.


For those parents who do not want to wait until September 1, please feel free to call the school to make arrangements to pick up a packet. Office hours are usually 8 - 4 but do vary due to meetings.


Completed registration packets may be returned any time before the first day of school or may be returned on the first day of school on September 8. There is a basket outside of the front door where you can drop off packets.
