Masks donated to students and staff by caring individuals Marcia Carlton with some of the masks she has made to give away.

      Some people see a need and try their best to find a solution; rather than complain and worry about themselves. Ladies like Marcia Carlton and Donna Rose fit this description.  The Wayne County School District has benefitted from their willingness to help others during the on-going pandemic. When there was a reported lack of personal protective equipment, both these ladies got to work making masks to help protect local residents from the spread of COVID-19.

Walker Early Learning Center hosts Family Literacy Night Drive-Through event Principal reading a book logo

Now the youngest learners will get to go to the Drive-In...not the movie kind, but a fun family literacy night drive-through event at Walker Early Learning Center this Thursday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The teachers are missing seeing their students in-person and this will be a way for them to connect, from a distance. Families will be able to circle around the back parking lot of the school without getting out of their car.

Schools do not just deal with academics. They are a community that provides a wealth of services to children and their families. Even though all of the students are currently home studying remotely, the district did not want their students to miss an annual school event that everyone looks forward to in the fall.

   Wayne County Middle School is reaching out to parents by providing a series of Parent Skill Building Sessions to help them navigate their child’s virtual learning at home. They did not get any parent responses from the parent session to be held at Monticello Elementary on Thursday, November 19th at 4:00 p.m. so that event is cancelled. However, the second session for the middle school will have participants on Friday (November 20) at 10 a.m. in the media center. Google Classroom will be one of the topics to better familiarize parents with their childrens' work.

Don't miss out on some great food options for your child Pizza flyer

The Nutrition Service Department is providing food to youngsters with some creative ideas for recipes to make at home. They are excited to announce the addition of weekend meals, with a flyer on how to prepare popular options like pizza, for instance. The weekly Friday pick-up service offers curbside distribution behind the middle school from 10 to 4:30 p.m. In addition, food items are being sent home with students who have fallen behind that drop in for tutoring sessions during virtual days. The staff are constantly trying to make sure the children of Wayne County are not going hungry during the pandemic.
