Wamsutta Family Update 05/29/2020
Posted on 05/29/2020

Good morning WMS students and families. 


Linked below and attached above I have the plans for next week.   

Grade 5

Grade 6

Grade 7

Grade 8

We’ll have one more remote learning plan for you next Friday that will take us through the end of our school year and start students off on their summer work.


In other news:

  1. I don’t know if I missed it or was not informed, but the folks in charge of Special Olympics are doing a virtual, inclusive event next Wednesday.  The registration information is here.  I apologize for the late notice.
  2. We will be closing term 3 grades next Friday, and grades will be posted for both end of term and end of year on Monday June 8th.  We will not be issuing paper report cards in light of the pandemic, but an email will be sent to all parents so they might view it through an Aspen workflow.

The rest of this email is a repeat of dates, with new information added as I know it. 


Wednesday, June 10                     Chromebook Return Day and Summer Enrichment Packet Distribution

We will be collecting all Chromebooks from 5th graders and any that were distributed since our closure between 10 AM and 2 PM on this day.  We ask that you pull around the back of the school and line up where you normally would for pick up or drop off.  Staff, at a distance, will provide guidance.  We ask that only one person exit your vehicle, and this person both wear a mask and follow social distancing markers throughout the process.  We are requesting that the Chromebook and charger be returned, not the protective case if you received one.  We are also asking that you arrive by the following schedule.

Last Names A-F                 10 AM – 11 AM

Last Names G-L                 11 AM – Noon

Last Names M-R               Noon – 1 PM

Last Names S-Z                  1 PM – 2 PM

If most families can follow the above schedule it should be a swift process, but please know it is far more important for us to get all the Chromebooks back than to have you arrive at a specific hour that day.  Please let me know as soon as possible if you are unable to return the Chromebook between 10 and 2 this day.

*Please note that students involved in ESY or summer programs will receive an email before the 10th advising them to keep their Chromebooks and not return them on this day.

More details on the below events will be forthcoming:

Monday, June 15                                        5th Grade Drop Off and Locker Clean Up

Tuesday, June 16                                         6th Grade Drop Off and Locker Clean Up

Wednesday, June 17                                  7th Grade Drop Off and Locker Clean Up

Thursday June 18 and Friday June 19     8th Grade Drop Off, Locker Clean Up, and Step Up Activity

Again and unfortunately, we will have to wait for the most recent state guidance for keeping students, staff, and families as safe as possible to have the full details worked out.  I appreciate your patience. 

Thank you.

Joseph Connor, WMS
