Hello Wyoming Middle School Families:

I shared the following with families through SchoolMessenger (our automated email system) this afternoon. If you have not been receiving district emails through SchoolMessenger, please reach out to Director of Communications Suzy Henke at henkes@wyomingcityschools.org for assistance in troubleshooting.

Thank you and be well,
Jennifer Klein
Principal

 

Dear Wyoming Middle School Families:

Let me begin by saying how much we miss all of our middle school students and families! We are concerned for the wellbeing of our students, as well as their families. None of us has experienced a pandemic before and these four weeks have not been easy. We understand many families are working from home and have several children to assist in their learning and support emotionally.

In order to streamline communication regarding school assignments, we will be sending a weekly, grade-level document to families through our automated email system (SchoolMessenger) each Monday by 8:30 a.m. We will also post the weekly document on the student canvas page. We hope that sharing these materials in a single email at the beginning of each week will allow families to structure their weeks in a personalized way for each household. Our online remote learning will begin on Monday, April 13, with an email to families listing weekly student assignments.

The general structure of the week:

 9-11 a.m. Office Hours (Monday – Friday)

 

1-3:30 p.m.   Monday

English-Language Arts: Teacher Check-In or Optional Instructional Opportunity

 

1-3:30 p.m. Tuesday

Math: Teacher Check-In or Optional Instructional Opportunity

 

1-3:30 p.m. Wednesday

Science: Teacher Check-In or Optional Instructional Opportunity

 

1-3:30 p.m. Thursday

Social Studies: Teacher Check-In or Optional Instructional Opportunity

 

1-3:30 p.m. Friday

Specials: Teacher Check-In or Optional Instructional Opportunity

 

During Office Hours:
Teachers will be online ready to respond to students through email and CANVAS. The goal during this time is to answer questions and provide immediate feedback and support on the week’s assignments.

During the afternoons:
Teachers will use this time to schedule online real-time engagement and/or lessons to work with students through Zoom or other online virtual meeting tools. To lessen the likelihood of overlapping meetings, these are blocked by subject area.

If you received a school-issued computer and encounter any technical issues, please inform your child’s teacher so they can submit a help ticket to our technology department for support.

For additional questions, contact your child’s teacher and for further assistance, please don’t hesitate to email Mr. Renner or myself.

Stay Healthy!
