Grab and Go Breakfast and Lunch Registration

April 3, 2020
West Muskingum Families,
     As we continue with remote learning next week we want to remind you that we don’t expect parents to teach content. Students should work at their own pace.
     I personally promise you that teachers will be flexible with assignments and grading. All that I ask is that you continue to communicate with teachers and administrators. We are here to help with any educational issues. 
     We know that many family situations have changed. We know that many people have lost jobs or wages, or have taken on extra responsibilities, all while having your students at home and trying to keep everyone healthy. 
     If your income situation has changed, please know that the free and reduced application is active by clicking Forms and Links to the left. This will allow us to help more families in our district in a variety of ways. New applicants can bring a completed form with them on Monday. 
     We will again be providing Grab and and Go breakfast/lunches for next week at the high school from 11 am to noon on Monday. The link above is open until noon on Saturday. Please register each week so we have an accurate count. 
     We are all in this together. Remember, we are working and school is still in session. Don’t feel stressed by school. I encourage you to reach out to teachers or administrators with any questions or concerns. 
     Stay safe West. 
Chad Shawger
Superintendent

West Muskingum Families,
     On Monday Governor DeWine ordered our physical buildings closed through at least May 1. Our teachers are still working from home and will continue to provide lessons for our students. 
     We will still observe Spring Break from April 9-13 as these days of remote learning are counting toward student hours.
     We will continue our Grab and Go food distribution for those in need on Mondays. Be sure to register each week by clicking the link above from noon on Thursday through Saturday at noon.
     There are many unknowns at this time. Please excuse the many All Calls, but I want all of you to have the information as we get it. 
     If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to an administrator or teacher for clarification. 
     Stay safe West. 
Chad Shawger

     There will be a Grab and Go event each Monday from 11 to noon at the high school. Bagged meals will include breakfast and lunch for five days.
     Please register online each week so we can have an accurate count. The registration link is located above. Registration will be open until noon on Saturday.
     I want to thank our families for what you are doing at home to support the educational process. Our teachers are working from home, so please email them with any questions or concerns. We certainly don’t expect you to teach the content, but please partner with us to be sure learning is still taking place.
    Nobody is certain how long this will last, but everyone is doing their best and we will get through this together. We all miss our students and want to get back to normal as soon as possible.
    As always, if you have questions all employee emails are on the website or you can call the district office at 455-4052 and leave a voicemail.
Stay healthy West Muskingum,
Chad Shawger
Superintendent
