    Dear Wareham Middle School Families,

    Our staff is so excited for the start of school! Please note that the first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 28, 2019. The first day is HALF DAY. The school day for students is 7:40 AM to 10:02 AM. Students should report directly to their homerooms the first day. If they forget their homerooms, no worries! We will have staff in the hallways to help all students find their homerooms.

    During the first days of school, students will receive class schedules, health registration forms, and other important documents. Information regarding Student Insurance will not be sent home. Please see the Wareham Public School website if you are interested in enrolling your child in this program. The Staff and Student Handbooks will be available online. There will be hard copies available in the office for those of you who want one. Please take time to review, complete, and return the required forms by Wednesday, September 4th. 

    Please Note:

    Between 7:30 AM and 7:40 AM all parents/guardians who are dropping off their child must do so at or near the auditorium/gymnasium entrance to the middle school (door #9). This entrance is located close to the Town Hall parking lot.

    Parents/guardians dropping off their child should enter near the Town Hall and exit via the driveway near the Multi Service Center.

    All large buses will unload at the front entrance to the middle school. Special education buses will unload near the student drop-off area.

    Any student being dropped off after 7:40 AM will be considered tardy and must use the main entrance to the school. 

    Viking Drive will not be accessible between 1:55 PM and 2:15 PM. each day to ensure a safe and orderly student dismissal.

    Attendance at school is required by law for children under the age of 16. The only absences that are excused are those necessary for personal illness (doctor’s note required), religious holidays, court appearances and bereavement. We expect students at school every day, EVERY DAY COUNTS!

    Excessive tardies will result in the following actions:

    • Students with 3 tardies in one term will be given a warning.
    • Students with 4 tardies in one term will be assigned an office detention.
    • Students with 5 or more tardies in one term will serve a Friday detention.

    Mobile or handheld devices are inclusive of any electronic or wireless communication devices. Electronic equipment can infringe on student safety and be a distraction to the school's learning environment. If students bring such a device to school and use it inappropriately and/or at inappropriate times, administrators and professional staff may take any of these devices from students, request that parents/guardians claim the devices at school, and take appropriate disciplinary action.

    No drinks from outside school are allowed in the building with students unless it is water only. Before entering the building, all outside drinks, including Dunkin Donuts’ drinks, must be thrown away. There will be a barrel available at the entrance for students’ convenience. 

    Backpacks, book bags, string bags, and gym bags may be brought to school but cannot be carried during the school day. Upon entering the building, all bags must be placed in student lockers. Appropriate times throughout the day will be provided for students to have access to their personal belongings in their lockers. 

    All students will receive a Chromebook to use at school for educational purposes. Chromebooks will remain in homerooms in order to charge overnight. 

    Breakfast and lunch are free for all students. Breakfast is served every day. Lunch is served every day except half days.

    Math work and summer reading notes are due September 6th for all students.

    School Council Members are needed. All schools are required to have a school council. WMS school council typically meets on Thursday once a month at 5:30 PM. Please email Principal Cote at tcote@wareham.k12.ma.us if you are interested in being on our council.
