Attendance

Students are required to be in attendance 90% of the academic year, this breaks down to mean no more than 18 excused or unexcused absences. Every class period at the junior high level counts toward compulsory attendance. This includes the Eagle period at the end of the day.

Dress Code Concerns

These first 7 days of school we have been diligent in trying to address concerns regarding student dress code in order to get everyone off on the right foot. There are a few things that need to be specifically addressed that seem to be consistent:


  • Boys: The biggest concern we see is boys that have long hair that extends below the eyebrow but they push it to the side so that it is not in front of their eyes. This is not in compliance with the policy. If the hair extends below the eye brows then it is too long.
  • Girls: There are lots of cute tops that are being worn that have large v-neck cuts that are showing the girls undergarments underneath. There should be no undergarment item showing on the young ladies.


The Dress Code Policy has not changed since last year, but if you need to reference it, click here and then scroll to page 37. If you have questions, please let us know.

6th Grade Running Club

Running club will start September 12th after school from 3:35 p.m. to 4:05 p.m.

Running club is every Tuesday for any 6th-grade student that wants to participate. Pick-up will be at the front of the building. The running club season will continue through the Coyote Chase race held at Weatherford College (date for the race is still TBA).

Questions please contact Mr. Atchley at batchley@brockisd.net

Eagle Garden - something we are working toward.....

Our primary goal of the Eagle Garden is to enrich the curriculum and support project-based and experiential learning. This outdoor learning center will allow for all levels of students to engage in agricultural practices on a small scale, learning about the responsibilities and impacts of land cultivation. We are currently in the planning phase of the Eagle Garden but would welcome any community support to help get this off the ground and to fruition by the start of next school year. Please direct questions/ideas/support to Nancy Beaty @ nbeaty@brockisd.net
