Pick Up / Drop Off Locations @ WMS (Safety Alert)

Dear Western Middle School families,

 

We are asking for your help again during the morning drop off and afternoon pick up times. We continue to have some safety concerns in the parking lot and need your help to keep all students safe.

Here are a few specific reminders for picking up and dropping off your student.  Students can be dropped off anywhere along the sidewalk on the parking lot side of the metal fence.  Students can be dropped off on the north and/or south side of the crosswalk and for safety reasons must stay on the sidewalk and use the crosswalk.  Students are not permitted to be picked up or dropped off in other areas, especially the access road between the administration offices and the soccer field.  Plans are in place for new signs to make this a little more clear but please do not use the access road for pick-up or drop off at any time.    

Sincerely,

Western Middle School

2016-2017 School Calendar
Western's 2016-2017 School Calendar

One Page Summary 2016-2017 School Calendar

Starting with the 2016-2017 school year, school districts in Michigan must provide a minimum of 180 days of student instruction.  For many districts including Western, this means having to add days onto their existing calendars.  Over a year ago, the superintendents in Jackson County and their boards of education began talking about developing a "common calendar" for the county.  After much discussion and receiving a waiver from the the State of Michigan to start before Labor Day, the common calendar for Jackson County is becoming a reality.  We are very aware that not everyone likes the notion of starting school before Labor Day, but for many of us this is returning to what was done prior to the 2006 legislation.  Regardless, the 180 day requirement exists and whether we add time onto the beginning or end of the school year it will shorten summer vacation.
