Football Results from October 23

Great action this week as our C teams played their final games of the season on Monday night. The 7th grade took a tough loss from Howard, but the 8th grade went out with another win to go 4-1 on the season.

The 7th B put a whipping on HF at Lake Ridge 20-0 and then watched as the A team followed suit with a 40-22 win.

Meanwhile, over in Crowley the 8th grade B team took sole possession of first place with a 14-12 victory. The A team finished off the sweep with a very physical 22-12 win.

Great job by our kids and great job by our coaching staff to make this a successful season despite all the weather issues they have faced. Last game of the season next Monday vs. the Howard Knights.

Arrival and Dismissal at DJMS

We are doing a great job as we begin this new year. Thank you for being patient as everyone learns the new routines and procedures for arrival and dismissal. Just a few reminders to keep in mind as we move forward this year.

  • Students are to be dropped off in front of the building for arrival. The building opens at 8:10 each day. If arriving for a sport, follow the coaches directions for arrival.
  • Students are to be picked up on the side or in front of the school. This is the Broad St. side or the Day Miar side of the school.
  • Follow the flow of traffic through the parking lot
  • Students walking home or being picked up by their parents will leave the building from the front. Students are not to leave the building from side or back exit areas.
  • Keep the circle drive clear for our designated cars and buses for that area.
  • Keep the area in front of the dumpsters clear. This is a no parking or standing zone.
  • The bus lane is in the back of the building near the football field. This is for buses only.
  • If driving in the back, be mindful that students are crossing to the field for practice before and after school.

Dress Code

Our dress code has changed a little this year. The students are following it well as we begin the year. Please remember the rips or tears in jeans must be below fingertip length when arms on down by the side. This follows the same guideline as the length of shorts and dresses. To see the full dress code, visit the link below.
