WMMS School Closure Information


Dear Parents & Guardians,

Closing school for a pandemic is unprecedented for Kirksville R-III.  WMMS is coordinating with district leadership to create plans to educate students to the best of our ability.  Our teachers met today to discuss education options and will continue to meet and prepare lessons to share with our students.  Please watch textcaster, the WMMS website, the WMMS Facebook page, and the email address you have on file with us.  If you have not updated your contact information with the school, please contact the office as soon as possible to do that.  We will be sharing a survey to help us gather information about the resources you have available to your child during the school closure.  Our goal is to prepare lessons in a variety of ways to meet the needs of all our students. Later this week you will receive information on how to access the lessons that have been prepared.  

One additional note:  Kirksville R-III will be serving breakfast and lunch for students starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17th. There will be a designated vehicle at each location with a sign.

Breakfast: 7:30AM-8:00AM

Lunch: 11:00AM-11:30AM


YMCA, Jaycee Park, Willard School/Jackson Electric, Bank Midwest, Cresthaven Trailer Park, Assembly of God Church, Countryside Church, Devlin Place, Fire Station, Woodwinds, Town and Country Trailer Court, Newton/Stinson Trailer Court, Eastgate Trailer Court, and Ray Miller Elementary.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate this new territory.



Julie Esquivel, WMMS Principal
