Western Middle School Parent Information
August 21, 2020
I hope that your student is off to a great start to the school year. I know that there is a lot of learning happening both in-person and virtually. Please take a few moments to read through some important information below:
- Transportation: Western transportation policy states that you must wear a face covering when you are on the bus. If you are a bus rider, you need to keep your face mask on at all times. The consequences for removing your face mask are as follows per our assistant superintendent. ● 1st offense - Warning ● 2nd offense - 5 days off bus ● 3rd offense - 10 days off bus ● 4th offense - loss of bus privileges
- Sports: If your child is interested in playing sports, he/she will need a physical. If you have a physical on file from 2019-2020 there is a Health History Update Questionnaire packet in the office that you need to pick up, fill out and return to Mrs. Quinn. If you DO NOT have a physical on file from 2019-2020 you will need to pick up a physical packet that will need completed and returned to Mrs. Quinn.
- Self-Check: Don’t forget to fill out the self-check daily. Please fill one out for each student who attends any schools (in person) at Western. You can access that form here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf1BDXMhFboND6Vmplf9ngCeVvVETExeSh8wJ8IgIwMtHU90g/viewform
- Virtual Real-time learners- It is important that during Zoom sessions to have your Ipad camera on and visible to the teachers for accurate attendance and to be present in class. If cameras are turned off we are assuming you are not there and will be counted absent.
