Transition back to WMS

Dear Parents,

The Wyoming Middle School staff has been working hard to ensure that the transition back to Wyoming Middle School will be as smooth as possible.  We cannot thank you enough for your flexibility and continued support during construction.  I also would like to thank your children for exceeding our expectations.

I am excited to tell you that we are on time and will begin to move on December 19th.  We will welcome our students to the new WMS on Tuesday January 6th.  As we prepare for the move, you may see boxes in classrooms and in the office.  We appreciate your understanding as the move gets closer.

On December 11th and December 15th, we plan to walk our students to WMS to begin the transition with them.  It is very important that we help our students become as comfortable as possible with the move.  Our 7th– 8th grade students will tour the middle school on December 11th during 2nd – 4th period.  Our 5th– 6th grade students will tour the middle school on December 15th from 8:20 – 10:35.   We plan to allow students to visit classrooms and other important areas of the building.

We are asking that you click the following link to complete the digital permission slip.  Please complete the permission slip no later than Tuesday, December 9th.

Our middle staff will walk with students.  Students will be supervised and we will remind them to stay on the sidewalk and crosswalks.  The Wyoming Police also plan to be present while students are walking on Burns and Wyoming Avenue.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sending email and blog communications with many more details about the move and transition back to Wyoming Middle School.  I have attached a timeline for your convenience.

After the grade level tours, the building will not be open to the general public, students or parents until January 6th.  We appreciate your understanding as we try to make the building as comfortable as possible for our students.

Thank you for your continued support and flexibility!
