Dear Barker Students, Parents, and Community,
As principal of Barker Middle School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2020-21 school year. This will be my first year as principal and my tenth year in the Michigan City Area Schools district. We also have a new assistant principal, Michael James, who will be joining us from Hobart Middle School. The student start date has been pushed back to August 24th. Online instruction will look different than the spring in that it will combine live instruction, recorded lessons, activities and time for collaboration during regular school hours. Our staff is preparing to provide the best online learning experience possible for our students and I am confident that we will be successful in that endeavor. Despite the challenges that await for us this school year, cooperation amongst parents, students, and staff will be critical for establishing a learning experience that benefits all. It is truly an honor to serve as the principal of Barker Middle School. Please feel free to contact me at (219) 873-2057 extension 7311 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Lucas Snyder Barker Principal
