2019-2020 YEARBOOK (MIDDLE SCHOOL)

If you are interested in purchasing a (Middle School) yearbook from last year, please do the following:
*Write a check for $30 made payable to Wyoming City Schools
*Put your child’s name and homeroom number on the memo line
*Enclose it in an envelope marked “Yearbook”
*Have your child give it to his/her homeroom teacher

Homeroom teachers will give the book to your child the next school day.

WMS LEARNING COMMONS INFORMATION

Remote students can check books out from the Learning Commons by logging into the Destiny Catalog, choosing books  and placing a hold on them (limit 2 holds with a total of 4 books checked out at a time). 
Remote students should send me an email through CANVAS to backk@wyomingcityschools.org  when they put a hold on a book to tell me they put a hold on a book and that they are a Remote Student. 
Students can look at their “checkouts” in the Destiny Catalog after logging in to see if the book is ready for them yet. If books are in their “checkouts” they are ready to be picked up. If it is still in “Holds” it is not ready yet. 
Books can be picked up on Fridays in the Front entrance!
Thanks, Mrs. Back

INFORMATION REGARDING OUR LUNCH PROGRAM

We are happy to announce that the Ohio Department of Education, under the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food, and Nutrition Services, has notified our district that 100 percent of students attending Wyoming City Schools (both In-Person and Online) are eligible for free meals effective September 8 through December 31, 2020. 

What this means is that all Wyoming students in grades Preschool through 12 will not be charged for meals they receive at school. Students learning remotely who receive to-go meals will not be charged either. If you have pre-paid for your child’s meals, that balance will remain in your account until your child begins to purchase meals again in January 2021.

However, in order to possibly extend this benefit past December 31, 2020, we ask parents who think they may qualify for free and reduced meals to please fill out the Free and Deduced Price Meal Application (found on the Wyoming website under Food Services). 

If families were approved last year they need to apply again this year. This benefits the District and plays a part in qualifying Wyoming City Schools for future extensions of free meals district-wide. If you received a Direct Certification letter in the mail from Milford Nutrition Services, you do not need to apply. You will need to contact the Nutrition office if you have any children who were not listed on the letter.  (513-576-2290).  

Students learning remotely need to first register (once) to receive meals by calling (513) 576-2290 or (513) 576-4160. Packages of frozen meals for seven days will be available for pickup at Wyoming Middle School on Mondays between 12:45 -1:45 PM.

A MESSAGE FROM WYOMING PUBLIC LIBRARY

public library

We are getting the  word out to students at the Middle School regarding limitations that have been set at all library branches, including Wyoming, due to the pandemic.

I know that many parents rely on their children coming to the branch after school to study or await pickup. While we love to see the kids use our facilities after school, these limitations will make it rather difficult for this to happen.

Essentially, only 12 people are allowed in the branch at any one time in order to achieve social distancing. Also, in order to create a flow of people in and out of the building, everyone is limited to one hour inside the library.

I wish you all the best for a new school year in such challenging times.

Best Wishes,

Tom Gardner
