DLMS Update, November 19

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

As you are aware, DLMS will be moving to distance learning model after the Thanksgiving break through January 18th.  DLMS has made every effort to stay in hybrid since the beginning of the year and teachers and students have done a fantastic job.  I am proud of our building and what we have accomplished. 

 

As numbers have increased in Becker County, we have been preparing for the possibility of distance learning and have a calendar and revised distance schedule. We have shared this with students in preparation for this potential change and students are prepared.  Please find the latest schedule under "Latest News" in the top right corner of this web-page.  A January schedule will be promulgated in mid December.

 

Students will continue to follow a block schedule with adjustments to class length, lunch time, and time between classes.  The Friday schedule remains very similar with adjustments for time between classes to logout and login.  Students will continue to have synchronous instruction and follow the block schedule as they have been doing all year.  We expect high level instruction and students to be engaged in their online activities.  

 

Our teachers will remain in our building and we continue to be open for business.  If students need personal assistance our teachers are available to arrange individual sessions with students on site.  This must be planned in advance and adhere to protocols of social distancing and mask requirements.  

 

Student Council will also be promoting activities to keep our student body connected and engaged as Lakers.  If your student says they have to dress a certain way or have their pet attend primetime/homeroom with them, do not be surprised, these will be Student Council sponsored events.  

 

Stay safe and we will get through this together.  As always, thank you for the opportunity to educate your children.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Mike Suckert, Principal DLMS

Attendance - Please report attendance as you have in past years to the office (218-847-9228) if you have child who will not be attending either in person or virtually.  If students are not attending either in person or virtually and parent/guardian has not contacted us we will be contacting parents/guardians to verify/confirm absence.

  

Landing Page - DLMS will utilize a landing page for students/parents again this year.  This page will have each teacher listed and will have weekly activities/lessons/information.  The Landing Page will be prominently displayed on the DLMS website for access.

  

Laker activity registration is now online.  The link is located above.  A guide for registration can be found on the Middle School website in the upper right hand corner, under "Latest News". The student's six-digit Skyward ID will be required in order to register. Please access the student's Skyward account for this information.

7th Graders and any student who did not participate in activities during 7th grade will need to have an athletic physical on file at the Detroit Lakes Middle School before they will be able to register online. The physical needs to be completed on the Minnesota State High School League form. Well-child checks do not qualify as a sports physical. 

**Before online registration can be completed, the athletic physical needs to be on file at the Middle School.  The physical form can be dropped off at the Middle School and deposited in the locked gray box outside of the office, or emailed to mchampa@detlakes.k12.mn.us.
