Hello East Middle School Parents, Students and Staff;

Due to a high level of precaution and concern for the safety of students, staff, parents and other community members, EMS will be transitioning to remote learning from Monday, November 16th through Friday, November 20th.

Students will be taking home all necessary learning materials, including musical instruments, technology and textbooks today.

Our school’s master schedule of learning will be adjusted for remote learning and to align with all other middle schools in our district.  EMS’s REMOTE SCHEDULE is identified below:


Important Remote Learning Guidelines:

  • Attendance will be taken and closely and monitored through Google Meets.  Our front office will remain open and parents are asked to follow normal excusal procedures.

  • Students are expected to follow their normal daily schedule identified above.

  • All school and district rules and policies remain in effect, including our dress code.

  • Students are expected to complete all assignments on time and submit them through Schoology.

Parents, as you help navigate your child’s education during remote learning, please use the following information to help you with Chromebooks and Schoology:

  • Schoology Support:

    • It is best if you check your child’s Schoology using your student's login so that you have a more complete view of what is occurring in your child’s academic life at East Middle School:  Schoology Guide For Parents

Don’t go hungry during remote learning, or upon our return to face-to-face learning!

  • We will be serving take out lunch and breakfast from 12-1 pm every day.  Breakfast will be provided a day in advance, except for Monday.

  • Please seek more information on our district’s website or email Sheila Wickre before 10:00 AM each day if you would like to receive meals or if you have any questions: sheila.wickre@d51schools.org

  • All D51 students at schools will receive FREE meals (breakfast and lunch), no matter any previous eligibility.  

Thank you for your support as we continue to work through the challenging and unprecedented times we are all facing.  We are excited to see students again on Tuesday, December 1st!

Exciting news for D51 families:
The US Department of Agriculture recently announced that they are extending their Free Meals for Kids program through the end of December 2020 or until available funding runs out. This means all students in District 51 can access healthy and nutritious breakfast and lunch at school for no additional cost.
Effective Wednesday, September 2, all students at D51 schools will receive free breakfast and lunch, no matter the student's prior free, reduced, or full pay eligibility. Students will not have to present an ID to receive their meals.
We are excited for this news and hope that having accessible and healthy meals for all students will help increase student physical and mental health which will fuel successful learning.
To see what meals will be served at your school, please visit our new online menus here: .
Please note: Households who have not yet applied for free or reduced meals for 2020-21 are encouraged to complete an application so eligible students will receive Free/Reduced meals AFTER December 2020, or when available funding runs out under the current guidance.
