All Calls and Final Forms Emails

If you are not receiving calls or emails from the district for school closings and/or school events, please let the Middle School office know so that we can update our records!

Attendance

Please remember if your child is not at school, you are required to call our Attendance Line to report the absence. Prior to 8:05 A.M. on the day of the student's absence, the parent or guardian is to call the school to report the absence (842-5151). If the parent did not call the absence in on the day of the absence, then the student is to bring, to the attendance office, a written note explaining the absence from school. The note should include the following information: (a) Student's name, (b) Grade, (c) Date(s) of absence, (d) Reason for absence, (e) Parent's signature. If the note is not turned in to the office, the absence will be unexcused. Students will be permitted to make up any work assigned on the day of an excused absence.

Chromebooks

Students use their Chromebook throughout their entire school day. Please help us by making sure that your student's device is charged and brought to school each day. We are very limited on loaner devices. Thanks!
