SRMS will be a hub to develop academic and social success for our diverse population, where all students and faculty matter and have a gift to contribute to our school and community.
Message from Mr. Dunbar
- This Friday, January 26th is the end of the second quarter. There is no school for students on this day.
- Do not forget to take time to sit down with your child and look at their academic progress in Schoology. If you need assistance with Schoology access make sure to talk to your child's school counselor. You only have this week to reach out to teachers and make a plan to ensure success for the second quarter.
Congratulations Ms. Livengood --- SRMS Teacher of the Year 2024!!!
Congratulations Ms. Gray ---- SRMS Educational Support Person of the Year 2024!!

ALERT: Beware of Phishing Attempts on SMCPS Student Accounts
In recent weeks, phishing attempts have been targeted at SMCPS student accounts using methods outside of SMCPS managed services.
Phishing is a method where malicious individuals attempt to trick you into providing them with information about you and your online account information. These methods can take many forms, so staying vigilant for anything that seems out of the ordinary when online is important.
Additionally, please note that SMCPS IT support will never contact you on Discord, Steam, or any other application that is not managed by SMCPS and will never ask you for your account password. If you are contacted on any outside application stating to be SMCPS IT, please DO NOT respond, block/report the individual and inform your site administration so that it can be escalated. Contact your building-level tech or the Department of Information Technology Services (ITS) at your first leisure for more information.
