IMPORTANT CHANGE...
Greetings Tiger Families,
The administration, faculty, and staff of WMS want to remind you of the importance of providing a safe and healthy learning environment for your children.  Our teachers and support staff work diligently to keep their classrooms and workspaces clean after each transition, and we as school leaders are following all protocols set forth in order to keep our students, parents, and staff protected from Covid-19.  However, out of an abundance of caution, at this time all WMS students will pivot to remote learning beginning on 10/29/2020 and reporting back to traditional learning on 11/30/2020.  During this pivot, all extracurricular activities will be cancelled.  

Students who have turned in the device contract have been assigned devices and have been taught how to access their teachers' content/instruction.  If your Tiger has not received a device, please contact our librarian, Amber Skelton, at askelton@mauryk12.org to make arrangements for pick up.
We encourage all of our Tiger families to self-monitor and reach out to your health care providers should you experience any concerning symptoms.  

The cafeteria will provide breakfast and lunch beginning on 10/30/2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Pick up will be at the back of the building.  For more information, contact the cafeteria at 388.2558 ext. 1248.  

Please feel free to contact the office at 388.2558 or our school nurses, Beverly Norman and/or Delicia Hull at 388-2558 ext. 1443, with any questions or concerns. 
As always, we appreciate your support and grace as we continue to maneuver through these uncharted waters.

Saludos Familias Tigre,
La administración, la facultad y el personal de WMS quieren recordarle la importancia de brindar un entorno de aprendizaje seguro y saludable para sus hijos. Nuestros maestros y personal de apoyo trabajan diligentemente para mantener limpios sus salones de clases y espacios de trabajo después de cada transición, y nosotros, como líderes escolares, estamos siguiendo todos los protocolos establecidos para mantener a nuestros estudiantes, padres y personal protegidos de Covid-19. Sin embargo, por precaución, en este momento todos los estudiantes de WMS pasarán al aprendizaje remoto a partir del 29/10/2020  e informar al aprendizaje tradicional sobre 30/11/2020 . Durante este pivote, se cancelarán todas las actividades extracurriculares.

A los estudiantes que han entregado el contrato del dispositivo se les han asignado dispositivos y se les ha enseñado cómo acceder al contenido / instrucción de sus maestros. Si su Tiger no ha recibido un dispositivo, comuníquese con nuestra bibliotecaria, Amber Skelton, en askelton@mauryk12.org para coordinar la recogida.

Alentamos a todas nuestras familias de Tiger a que se autocontrolen y se comuniquen con sus proveedores de atención médica si experimenta algún síntoma preocupante.

La cafetería ofrecerá desayuno y almuerzo a partir del 30/10/2020 de 9:00 am a 12:00 pm La recogida será en la parte trasera del edificio. Para obtener más información, comuníquese con la cafetería al 388.2558 ext. 1248.

No dude en comunicarse con la oficina al 388.2558 o con nuestras enfermeras escolares, Beverly Norman y / o Delicia Hull al 388-2558 ext. 1443, con cualquier pregunta o inquietud.

Como siempre, agradecemos su apoyo y gracia mientras continuamos maniobrando a través de estas aguas desconocidas.
