Information for March 27 Homework Release


March 25, 2020


WMMS teachers continue to meet and plan education for all our students throughout the school closure.  With the community taking more and more precautions to keep the transmission of COVID-19 down, we need to provide school through online resources wherever possible.  


Beginning Friday, March 27 there will be three ways that students can access homework.  You will only need to use one of the following options:


Google Classroom: Teachers have created Google Classrooms where students can join and receive school work.  Almost all of our students have used Google Classroom before, so while this may seem new to you, your child has a good understanding of how it works.  If you have access to the internet, have your child check their school email address on Friday, March 27.  They should have an invitation to each teacher’s Google Classroom.  (This is the preferred method if you have access.)


Online access through the Kirksville R-III COVID-19 Webpage located in the “Academics” section.  All work will be posted here.  Much of the work can be completed on notebook paper and will not require you to print all of the documents. 


Packet pick-up: We will have packets available for those who indicated they did not have access to the internet at home at this time.  If you are unsure how you answered that question on the survey or need to update your information, please email me (jesquivel@kirksville.k12.mo.us)  or call the middle school office at 660-665-3793.  


Packet pickup will take place from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm on Friday, March 27.  If you are unable to pick up your packet during that time, please let us know.  


Most of all, please know that we understand there are many hurdles to getting and completing homework during this time.  What is most important is that everyone is safe.  The work will happen.  If you are delayed in receiving anything, just encourage your child to read every day.  Read things that they are interested in.  Have them help make meals for the family or help find recipes and make grocery lists.  There are many learning activities in the daily tasks of keeping a home running.  We care about your child and your family.  Together we will get through this.
