    Greetings Dunkirk Middle School Families and Staff!

     

    Yesterday was a difficult day because the DMS Family had to say “see you later” to our students till after Spring Vacation.  Our faculty and staff were amazing yesterday as we were able to hand out materials to over 90% of our students. As of this writing, I have less than 30 instructional packets to hand out to students.  Parents, Ms. Kaminski has been calling to leave messages about packet pick - up times. On Tuesday, March 24th, packages that haven’t been picked up will be dropped off at homes.

     

    Today Mr. Kuwik and his crew started cleansing the building so that we can return with everything sanitized. Please call before you come to DMS, as once a room is completed it will be off limits.  At this time the plan is to have the front office open from 8:00 am - 12:30 pm; lunch will still be served at the bus loop from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm.  

     

    Today I updated our homework page on our DMS website to contain by team what assignments are expected to be completed by April 20, 2020.  In addition our Creative Team created some fun Music, Art, and PE activities for all to enjoy. Please check them out by following the directions below:

    • Enter the following in your browser: https://www.dunkirkcsd.org/Domain/253
    • This will take you to the main page for DMS.  Click on the “Homework” at the top right. It is located under the “Sign In” button.
    • Locate your child’s team and then click on “Assignments Until Spring Break.”

     

    In addition I created a page called “COVID Information” which has three simple resources for you to have as parents.  The first one is a fact sheet that gives you the basic information that you need to know about the virus. The second and third documents are comics about COVID in English and Spanish to help you talk to your child.  Please check this resources out by doing the following:

    • Enter the following in your browser: https://www.dunkirkcsd.org/Domain/253
    • Click on “Our School”
    • Click on “COVID Information” - It is the last link in the “Our School” section.

     

    Mr. Pierce and I are working on creating other educational opportunities for your students to be posted on DoJo and on our Dunkirk Middle School site.  Please be patient as I gather these resources. I promise to update you with information for you and your family as I get it. Please email me at any time at rfarwell@dunkirkcsd.org or feel free to call me at 716 - 366 - 9300, ext. *3382.  Mr. Pierce and I will do our best to help in any way that we can.  Please be safe and healthy!

     

    Warm Wishes,
