New Student Orientation
This link will provide you information pertaining the New Student Orientation Program
Students that are not taking the bus will be dropped off in the front of the building near the flagpole. Students will then enter the building through our secondary student entrance, via the set of doors in the courtyard (Under the MEDFORD sign). Students are not permitted to enter the school through the main office entrance. The building opens at 7:50am.
Once the students are in the building they are not permitted to leave the building without permission from a staff member. The first bell will ring at 8:12am at which time the students are permitted to go to their lockers and prepare for the school day. The homeroom bell will ring at 8:20am. Students are expected to be in homeroom at that time or they will be marked late to school.
During the time between drop-off and the first bell, students will have the ability to get breakfast, go to the gym, work in the tech lounge or just socialize with their friends. Students are not permitted to leave the first floor or go to their lockers without permission. Students can work with a teacher during this time, but a written pass is required and must be shown to a staff member in order to go to their classroom.

The online student account system information will be provided in August regarding enrollment.
All students are required to have a school I.D. on them at all times when in the building. This card is to be worn and visible when you are on school property. If you are asked for it by any staff member you are required to hand it to the person making the request. If you lose your I.D. card, a new one must be purchased. Students can visit the main office to have a new ID printed. Homeroom teachers will also conduct an ID check and a list of those students names without an I.D. will be sent to the Main Office. A new I.D. is then printed and delivered to the students that morning. An obligation will automatically be issued to the student for $5.00. Parents can view fines through the parent portal. Obligations can be paid to the main office or through MY-SCHOOL BUCKS from the Medford homepage. If a student has an open obligation, the Parent Portal will have limited access until the obligation is closed. An “$” sign indicates that a student has an open fine.
School IDs will be provided on the first day of school. As part of the New Student Orientation, students will have their pictures taken in preparation of the opening of school. Students that are not able to attend the orientation will have their picture taken during the first week of school.
