Seckman Middle Friday FYI

September 24th

Hello SMS Families!

Happy Friday!


We had a lot of fun with our spirit week this week! It was great to see staff in students dressed in their jerseys, hawaiian shirts, school colors, and more!


Just a reminder that Monday, September 27th, our start time will change. Our start time will move to 7:55 am. More information below.


Thanks for your patience with the new change.


Also, 1st quarter progress reports will be sent home this afternoon. If you have any questions, please reach out to each individual teacher.


Have a great weekend!


Mr. Courtney Meagher

Change in Start Time beginning September 27th - Reminder

As you know an earlier email from Dr. Fregeau, our start time will be shifting to 7:55 am beginning September 27th. As you know, due to ongoing construction near the Seckman campus, along with a severe bus driver shortage that has forced us to stretch some bus routes a little too much, we have seen delays in busses leaving school each afternoon. Adding to this, we are expecting additional road construction to take place in the coming months that will potentially cause additional transportation delays. This adjustment will help with these issues. Please see the new bell schedule below that begins September 27th.


Thanks for your patience with the new change.

Updated Bus Routes

With the change in the start times, our transportation department has made adjustments to bus pickups and possible bus numbers. Please check the document below to see your child's bus stop and pickup times.

Morning Drop off Procedures beginning september 27th

With the shift to a 7:55am start time, there will be an adjustment to the timing of morning drop off. We ask that students not be dropped off any earlier than 7:35am. We do not have any staff to provide supervision at the building before 7:35am. Please see the attached graphic that will show the flow of traffic in the morning.


Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this.

SMS Trunk or Treat Challenge

Starting October 3rd, each advisory will be collecting candy donations for our community Trunk or Treat night on Monday, November 1st. Each donations will gain points for each advisory and the teacher with the advisory who accumulates the most points will dress up in a funny costume on Friday, October 29th.

Student Chromebook Reminders

Just a few reminders for students about their Chromebook usage:


  • Remind your students to charge their Chromebooks every night at home so they have a full battery the next morning!
  • Remind them to completely turn off their Chromebook when they are not using it. Putting it in sleep mode can cause issues with battery functionality.


Thanks for your help!
