Switzerland Point Middle School

Raider Rap -May 27, 2022

From Ms. Carnall

Good Afternoon,


It's hard to believe that this school year is already almost over. Next week will be having our locker clean out on Tuesday, May 31st. We ask that after that students only bring lunch boxes and string bags. No backpacks will be permitted on June 1st and 2nd. Raider Buck Raffles will be held on May 31st for 6th grade and June 1st for 7th and 8th grade. June 2nd, which is the last day of school, is an early release day. Students will be released from school at 12:50 pm.


We would like to thank all of the students, parents and hardworking staff for a great school year! To our 8th graders who are leaving us, we are sad to see you go but excited for what lies ahead for you. It has been a pleasure watching each of you grow into the young adult you are today. Wherever your journey takes you, we hope you think fondly about your time here at SPMS.


Please continue to watch the school website for any updates and news!


We hope that you all have a relaxing, fun and safe summer!!



Sincerely,


Ms. Carnall

YEARBOOK DISTRIBUTION

If you ordered a yearbook, they will be distributed out to homeroom classes on MAY 26th.

May 31th we will start selling all extra copies. If you did not purchase a yearbook and would like one, students may come by room 375 to purchase a yearbook – either in the morning or during their lunch period. As of now, there are about 80 extra copies that can be sold (first come, first served). The price is $40 and we accept cash or checks made out to SPMS.

Medication Pick Up

Switzerland Point Middle School

As we near the end of the school year, I would like to remind you that your child’s medication should be picked up from the clinic by 6/2/2022. School policy does not allow for medication to remain in the school over the summer. Emergency medications may be sent home with your student, however any prescriptions such as ADD/ADHD medications, may not. If you would like to pick up your child’s medication, please call the clinic to make an appointment. If you cannot pick up your child’s medication on 6/2/2022, please call the clinic and I will make other arraignments. Any medication left in the clinic after 6/3/2022 will be discarded according to policy.

As you know, medication orders must be completed every school year whether your child remains in the same school or goes to another. You can find these forms on the school website. If your child has a physical examination during the summer months, this is a good time to get the medication forms completed. Please visit the school website for current forms for next year. www-raider.stjohns.k12.fl.us/clinic/

For your convenience, the clinic will be open August 8th & 9th to accept your child’s medication and completed medical forms for the 2022/2023 school year.

If you have any questions, please contact the school clinic at 904-547-8628.

Have a safe and healthy summer!
