Technology Distribution

On Wednesday, April 8 2020, Jack Benny Middle School will be distributing technology to current students that may not have a device to complete Remote Learning during our school closure. Pick Up will be located at the Main Entrance of the building and take place from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm.  If this time does not work with your schedule, please send Principal Kirkwood an email at ikirkwood@wps60.org and I will make arrangements to ensure your child receives a device. Please email me if your child needs a device. To ensure that safety and state guidelines are followed during the pandemic, parents requesting devices will receive a scheduled time to pick up devices. This is to ensure that no more than eight individuals are in the building at one given time. Your health and safety is of utmost importance to me. Schedule times will be emailed to families on Tuesday afternoon.


PBIS activities while school is closed

In an effort to keep students and family morale up during the pandemic, the PBIS team has developed activities for students and families to engage while at home. At the end of each week students that submit activities and assignments per week will have the opportunity for their names to be entered into a weekly raffle for a free yearbook. Also, you may share a photo, upload a video or write a message about your experiences while having fun doing the activities listed on our Facebook page.

Remember to be safe and enjoy your first week of remote learning!
