Hello McCormick Families!
Students, teachers, and staff are excited to be back in the building. We have had two great weeks. Everyone has done a great job following the new expectations, and we thank you for your support and patience with our reentry plan. Thank you to all!
As we begin to settle into our new routines, here are some important items to be aware of:
Lockers: Lockers will be assigned to students during their advisory class on Monday, September 14th.
Food Service: Beginning September 14th, McCormick students will begin receiving universal free breakfast and lunch. This is a USDA program and is designed to help families during the pandemic. It is fully funded by the USDA and will run through Dec. 31. Qualified families will still need to fill out a free and reduced meal application. For additional information, please refer to https://www.laramie1.org/
Masks: All individuals within MJHS will be required to wear a mask. All masks are to meet CDC guidelines and LCSD#1 dress code guidelines. We continue to ask for your assistance to express the importance of wearing a mask. Each student is required to have at least two masks on them.
Water: Students may bring a refillable water bottle which will be allowed in class. Water fountains throughout the building will be shut off except for the bottle fillers.
Appointment Check Out: Please call the attendance office (307-771-2658) as early as possible to notify of an appointment. When you arrive at McCormick, please call the school and meet us at the front door to sign your student out. Upon return, it is not necessary to accompany your student back into the building. Just call and notify the office that your student has returned, and we will open the doors for reentry.
Athletics: For all McCormick football and volleyball games, we would like to remind everyone that a mask is required when entering all athletic facilities, home and away. A mask is also required if you are unable to social distance 6 feet from other people or families. Masks must be worn properly at all times. A reminder, every player has been given a pass which is limited to two guests per player for each game. We appreciate your support and assistance as we adhere to COVID-19 standards.
Networks of Support: The Networks of Support team will have our first “Warrior Rendezvous” and will meet with our 8th graders starting Friday September 25th. More information is forthcoming.
Parent Advisory Committee: Our first Parent Advisory Committee meeting will take place via Zoom and will be on September 30th, 2020 at 5:00pm. A Zoom link will be available on our webpage on September 29th.
Virtual Open House: Visit our website to view video presentations created by our McCormick teachers. This is a great opportunity to get to know your child’s teachers and to learn about their classroom policies and expectations.
Have a great day!
you for your patience as we plan for our upcoming school year. We
understand that you may have questions as it pertains to our return. We
have completed our reentry plan and have submitted to district
leadership for approval. Once approved, it will be posted on our
webpage. Please take a look at the FAQ document below to help answer
Question 1: Are students required to wear masks in the classroom?
All adults and students are required to wear masks when on school grounds, except for eating or other designated “mask breaks” that would take place outside. Masks will also be required for students riding the bus to/from school.

Answer: Students and staff will maintain six feet of social distancing in indoor and outdoor settings as much as possible.

Desks will be rearranged so that students are all facing the same direction and community desks will be removed.
Question 5: Will McCormick’s schedule be the same as the high school schedule?

Question 9: Will students still have the option of participating in school approved clubs?
Answer: Per district guidelines, student organizations will not meet until the second quarter.
Question 10: Will students have access to personal lockers?
