Dear Parents/Guardians,

We look forward to having your child attend Summer School at Murray Middle School. Students will be participating in a variety of learning activities each week. They will also take pre-assessments and post-assessments so that we can monitor their growth. Your child’s teachers will be in contact with more information. Summer Ignite will run from June 14-July 29 with a holiday break (July 4-8 – No School).

Students and staff will continue to wear masks and practice social distancing practices to prevent COVID-19. Please make sure your child brings a water bottle daily. If your child has any symptoms, please do not send your child to school and contact one of the coordinators.

Students may not be dropped off prior to 7:45, since supervision is unavailable. Students should be picked up promptly at 3:30. Transportation is continuing to work on bus routes and those should be available soon on the county website, or you can email one of us to confirm your stop. Please know that buses may take longer than normal, due to longer routes. If your child will be a car rider, please enter through the carpool line on the side of the school that is near the water tower. There is signage instructing you on where to turn. Please do not enter the front lot which is used by buses.

Discipline will be handled following the NHCS School Discipline policy. Students are expected to follow the NHCS dress code while attending summer school. If a child is out of dress code, they will be asked to call home for a change of clothes. Electronic devices are to be turned off and only permitted if allowed by the teacher for instructional purposes.

If you have any questions, please contact the coordinators, Mrs. Branch or Mrs. Shook
