This is a friendly reminder that tomorrow, Wednesday, November 4, our distance learning at the MWMS will start. It will continue through Friday, November 13. Students will not have school starting at 12:15pm on Thursday, November 5 and all day Friday, November 6 as the MWSD is closed on these two days for parent-teacher conferences. Starting tomorrow students will log into Microsoft Teams on their district provided laptops and follow their normal schedule. Wednesday will be a Day 3. Thursday will be a Day 4 and Monday will be a Day 5, etc. They will receive live instruction in their core classes (ELA, Math, Social Studies, and Science) and also some select related arts classes. Some related arts classes are not conducive to live instruction so therefore, students will need to keep up to date with these class assignments via Sapphire and/or Microsoft Teams. Attendance during this distance learning period is required and students are held accountable for their work and grades. Unless your students’ teacher instructs you differently, your student will follow their normal schedule throughout the day until in person instruction can again resume. We also understand there are multiple areas that internet is unstable and/or nonexistent. If this is the case, please contact the middle school to check on the availability of a hotspot. We have extremely limited quantities of the hotspots so we cannot make any guarantees. If you do not have a hotspot, we encourage you to visit the local places that have free Wi-Fi in your area or you are even welcome to visit any MWSD building and use the Wi-Fi on your school issued computer from the parking lots. Please inform the Middle school office of internet issues so we are informed and can alert the teachers of the potential issues before tomorrow. Finally, lunches will be distributed from 11:00-12:30 today and Thursday of this week. You can pick up the lunches on the west side of the building at the loading dock. This is the side closest to Middleburg Elementary. Lunches will also be distributed next week on the same days and times. If you have any additional questions, please contact the middle school office. We will work through this process together as we know and understand this wouldn’t be possible without your help and support. We thank you for your support and understanding during these challenging times. We will get through this together. Stay strong!

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON SENIOR PHOTOS: All Midd-West Sun Area Tech seniors will be photographed in the west campus CDL room at Sun Area Tech instead of the MWHS. This change is due to the Sun Area Tech students going back to school 5 days a week instead of hybrid.
ATTENTION SENIORS AND PARENTS!!!!! See the below post for senior portrait information. All of the portraits are going to be done in school and you can purchase prints or packages. This will save you time and money from having to schedule your own senior photos. ALL SENIORS MUST HAVE PHOTOS TAKEN IN SCHOOL IN ORDER TO BE IN THE YEARBOOK. For more information contact email@example.com
Attention parents of Virtual High School and MWCA High School students. If your child was in a Keystone eligible course during the 2019-2020 school year, you may opt them in to the December Keystone test by calling into the building. All students must meet state graduation requirements before a diploma can be granted. Participating and performing well in the Keystone assessment is one avenue a student can take. If a student does not take or perform well on the Keystone assessment, they will need to take a year long course during their senior year to earn their diploma. The following courses are Keystone eligible courses: 10th grade English, Biology, Algebra IB, Algebra I, and Accelerate Algebra I/II. If your child took any of these course during the 2019-2020 school year, they are eligible to opt in to the Keystone make-up assessments this December. Please contact the school if your child qualifies and you wish to opt them in. 570-837-0046 ex. 2001 or 2003
The Grandparent Caregiver Support Program is for grandparents raising grandchildren under the age of 18.

Unfortunately, with the ever changing COVID regulations and these uncertain times we have decided not to have the Midd-West Band Fall Fest that was scheduled on Saturday, October 3rd.
