Welcome to Dunkirk Middle School

  • Digital Back to School Forms 

    Just like many students are struggling to remember to turn in their assignments, parents and guardians are struggling to remember to turn in their "Back to School" paperwork and forms!  No issues though; this year we have created all of our forms digitally, so you can simply submit them with a few strokes of the keyboard!

    Please find the link below to the Safe and Civil Schools and Computer Acceptable Usage Policy forms.  You will have the option of reading the documents before signing the forms.  We understand many of you have already turned in the forms to the front office, but please resubmit them digitally using the link provided.  
    We're hoping to have every submission by October 30th. Help do your part and submit the forms for your child today!

  • Attendance and Virtual Student Expectations Video/A Few Announcements

    Attendance - Please call the front office when your child is going to be out. You may also email Ms. Kaminski at mkaminski@g.dunkirkcsd.org. Doctor offices may also email Ms. Kaminski or fax us notes at 716 - 366 - 9357.

    Special Area Classes - Special area classes include PE, Health, Music, Art, Technology, Computer Technology, Family and Consumer Sciences, Character Ed (6th Grade) and Foreign Language (6th Grade). Many students have not joined these classes after the first week of school. These classes are not an option and do count as part of our academic program. Please check with your child to see if they are registered. All students have PE and the other classes happen at different times of the year. Please call and ask to speak to a counselor if you are unsure of what is on your child's schedule.

    Student Expectations and Student Schedules - Mr. Pierce and I created the following video to explain student expectations for virtual learning.  In addition we explain how a student schedule works.
