Montgomery Middle School Newsletter August 2022

Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!

Welcome Montgomery Middle School Families to the 2022-2023 school year! I am thrilled to be welcoming your children back on August 17th, 2022.

Montgomery Middle is a place where staff and families come together to ensure that our students grow to be productive, confident, empowered, compassionate members of a global society. I look forward to an amazing school year!

On behalf of the Montgomery staff , I'd like to extend a warm welcome to our new families and a welcome back to those of you who are returning. I hope that your summer break was filled with fun and relaxation and that you made many memories with family and friends.

I look forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure that our students are empowered to reach their full potential. Our educators understand that part of our students' success relies on the support offered at home and school and a strong partnership with families.

If you have not done so, please review the 2022-2023 school year student handbook that will be located on our website. In this handbook, you will find useful information that can help us move forward with the first weeks of school. Additionally, please consider becoming involved in our parent community by joining the PTSA, volunteer at school, or be a member of the School Site Council that helps guide decisions made at Montgomery. We are always open to finding ways to continue involving parents and families to help create learning environments that will promote success in our students.

Thank you for your support as we work together as a school community inspiring our students to reach their goals.

Mrs. Garmo

Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

Dropping off/Picking Up Students

Montgomery’s parking lot is the safest location to drop off and pick up students. When entering the parking lot:

  • Drive cautiously and slowly, not more than 5 MPH..

  • Be aware of children, school staff, and other pedestrians.

  • Do not block traffic; please be considerate of other students and their families.

  • The circular driveway is for loading and unloading of ill, injured, or disabled persons.

  • Students are dropped off and picked up in the RIGHT lane only; through traffic stays in the LEFT lane.

  • Obey all traffic laws and do NOT drop off students in the middle of the street or other unsafe locations.

Alternative Pick-up Points - There are several safe alternate locations for afternoon pick up:

  1. 4th Street between Granite Hills High School and Kennedy Park

  2. Foothills Adult School

  3. Kennedy Center

PLEASE STOP ONLY IN DESIGNATED LOCATIONS ON MELODY LANE (do not park in or block the bus lane)

Leaving School

All students MUST leave campus immediately after the last bell rings at 3:30 on regular days and 2:30 on modified days (Mondays). Students involved in school-sponsored, after-school activities (e.g. sports, clubs, & special events) are the only exception. In addition, proper etiquette and behavior is expected on the way home from school. Please help us reinforce our focus on respect and proper behavior when students are on their way to school, at school, and on their way home from school.

Visitor Policy

  • All visitors must check in at the Main Office via the online Raptor system.
