This is David Hitt, principal at Waycross Middle with another very important announcement. Based on more confirmed students with COVID this afternoon, we have made the decision to close Waycross Middle School for the remainder of this week. We will re-evaluate our situation on Friday and determine whether it will be safe to open School on Monday or if we need to extend the closure into the following week. We will make a call out by noon on Friday to inform you of our decision for the following week. We will be contacting parents of students that have been in direct contact with those students who have tested positive later this afternoon. If you do not receive a call, know that your student has not been in direct contact and they are not quarantined. Again, Waycross Middle will be closed to all students for the remainder of this week and possibly into next week. We will make a decision this Friday concerning next week and announce our decision by noon on Friday. Teachers will be posting instruction and work in Google Classroom starting at 11:30 tomorrow and then at 9:00 daily until we re-open. If you do not have WiFi in your home, we will have paper work packets available in the front office for your students. Again, thank you for your continued support and please stay safe.
This is David Hitt, principal at Waycross Middle with a very important announcement. Starting tomorrow morning, all 8th grades students that are not in a self contained setting are to remain home. Again, all 8th grade students not in the self contained setting are not to report to school tomorrow through next Friday, January 29th. This closure of 8th grade is due to the quarantining of several 8th grade teachers. Administration has contacted all parents and guardians of students that have been in direct contact with the staff member who tested positive. If you were not contacted today by Waycross Middle administration, then your 8th grade student is not quarantined but they will need to stay home from school through January 29th. All 8th grade students will have work posted in google classroom daily and they are expected to do this work each day. Teachers will notify me if a student is not doing their work and I will be contacting those parents. We are moving forward with instruction in all of our classes. If you experience any issues in the digital platform, please contact me immediately at the school and we will get the problem fixed. If your student is in the band and needs their instrument, please call the front office to set up a time to pick up their instrument. That number is 287-2333. Again, this school closure only affects students in the 8th grade that are not in the self contained setting. If you have questions or concerns please call us at 287-2333. Attendance will be taken for all 6th and 7th grade students. Thank you for your continued support and please be safe. David Hitt Principal
