Remote Learning Information


Hello McCormick Families,

On Monday, April 6, 2020, LCSD #1 will continue with our remote learning plan.  Your student’s teachers will be using a combination of video, learning packets, phone calls, emails, the Remind app, and Canvas as a means to continue teaching and provide for your student’s learning. 

If you identified your student as having the ability to use technology as a means to continue their learning please have them log on to the Canvas pages for each of their teachers starting Monday, April 6, 2020.  Each of the teachers will be communicating with you, through Canvas, their plan for their classroom and content. These Canvas pages will identify assignments, due dates, how to get help, available online resources, office hours for teachers, and grading policies.

If you identified your student as needing paper learning packets these will be available starting Tuesday, April 7, 2020.  The procedure to pick up these packets will be:

·         Paper learning packets will be available every Tuesday from 7 am – 12 pm starting Tuesday, April 7, 2020.

·         If your student lives outside of the snow closure boundary, our school buses will be picking up the learning packets at school and delivering them to rural bus stops.  You and/or your student may pick up their learning packets and return learning packets at that time and location.

·         If your student lives inside the snow closure boundary, please come to the front of the school (front drop off lane).  We are asking that you and/or your student remain in your car for social distancing purposes.  A McCormick employee will approach your car, ask for your student’s name, and radio in to the building where another employee will retrieve the learning packet.  This learning packet will be delivered to your car.  You may return learning packets to the employee the following week and we will ensure they reach your student’s teachers.

·         Learning packets will include an explanation from each teacher of their assignments, due dates, how to get help, available resources, office hours for teachers, and grading policies.


We appreciate all of your responses as we organized our student body and accessed their learning needs last week.  We also appreciate your partnership as we continue to move forward with our remote learning plan.  Teachers have been working hard to ensure that your student will be able to continue their learning and be as productive as possible during this time.

We miss having students in the building, but are thankful that LCSD#1 is taking the necessary steps to keep our community safe and healthy.  If you have questions, please feel free to call the school.  We are available Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m.


Warrior Positive Referral Challenge

Beginning Tuesday, February 18th, McCormick staff and students will be participating in the Warrior Positive Referral Challenge.  When teachers observe students doing the right thing and meeting expectations, they will write a positive referral.  Students with positive referrals will be recognized for their good behavior.  Prizes will be awarded to the Core with the most positive referrals, the students with the most positive referrals and the teachers who awarded the most positive referrals.  Prizes include treats, passes to go to lunch early, excused from homework tickets and much more. 

School wide behaviors we will work together to achieve are:

·         Show your respect and remove your hat inside the building

·         Be safe in the hallways and do not run.

·         Be responsible for each other and show kindness.

We believe that McCormick is a great school with the best students and want to recognize positive behaviors.

Hello McCormick parents! As we continue through our sports seasons, please remember that The Wyoming High School Activities Association and McCormick Jr. High School wants to remind you that good sportsmanship is one of the primary purposes of educational athletics. Our student-athletes and coaches recognize that judgment calls by officials, coaches, and themselves, are made in good faith and should be respected. Spectators can support both of these teams by refraining from derogatory or demeaning comments and cheers today.  Please represent your community, your school and yourself in a positive way. We hope that you will enjoy the game and support the students in a positive and sportsmanlike manner. Go  Warriors!
